Each Wednesday is Wonderstruck Interview day. Hearing other people’s stories is a great way to see things from a different perspective and perhaps find something new to apply to our own lives.
Today's interviewee is website designer and writer Laird Sapir.

A couple of weeks ago I was at a family dinner with my kids, my parents, and miscellaneous other relatives. My dad asked my four year old if he would like to say grace and my little guy nodded and we all joined hands. When little man was done reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, my entire family said "Amen."
I thought it was really funny that little man said the Pledge in place of a prayer, but I was totally wonderstruck by the fact that he knew the entire Pledge of Allegiance. Wowsa. (Also, kind of awesome that my entire family went with it and no one corrected him.)
What part of your day are you grateful for?
Any part of it that is quiet! When the little man is at school and his sister is napping, and I can spend a few minutes in a quiet house, with no interruptions...heaven.
What part of the day is tough? How do you move through it?
Waking up. I am always amazed at people who seem to spring out of bed ready to tackle the day. I am not one of those people. So I bribe myself with coffee. That usually works.
What do you wish you were more conscious of?
I wish I were more conscious of ... gosh, lots of things. I don't even know where to begin!
How do you stay focused on what is truly important to you?
Honestly? It is a daily challenge. I make lots and lots of lists. Lots. of. Lists.
I'm a website designer, writer, and collector of odd facts and random trivia. I have an office supply addiction, a 24 pound cat, and a love of really bad movies.
I'm about to have a serious chat with myself about whipping my own blog into shape, which you can read at lairdsapir.com.
