Did you celebrate yesterday?

Maybe an extra helping or two of green eggs and ham?

Or a bit of reading to smallish children?

Will did …

Will Koch reads Dr. Seuss

Sarah, who’s worked in our merchandise department for years and years, asked Will to come to her school yesterday to read to a wonderful group of kindergartners.

As Will was leaving our office yesterday, explaining where he was going, GM Matt said, “You know it’s Dr. Seuss’s birthday, right?”

Will stopped dead in his tracks.

Will Koch reads Dr. Seuss“Oh. Well, now it makes sense.”

And off he went.

Here are a few Dr. Seuss gems that surely fit the day (or any day):

Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.

If you never did, you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.

I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. An elephant’s faithful, one hundred percent.

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.

And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed.

From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere. 

Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.

    Lovely sentiment and quotes seem like they fit Will perfectly. Some of my favorite moments are going to my kids’ classrooms to read to them. The joy and energy from them is amazing. Thanks for sharing.

      Will was famous for double- (and even triple-) booking his schedule. I arrived at his office for a meeting that afternoon and realized he wasn’t in. It was impossible to grumble, though, when Matt told me where he’d gone. Will was one in a million!

    None of us are promise tomorrow. So do what you can today. Love your neighbor. Show kindness to one another. Read a book to a child. Thank you Will for being the hands and feet of Jesus.
