"Charlotte had written the word RADIANT, and Wilbur really looked radiant as he stood in the golden sunlight. Ever since the spider had befriended him, he had done his best to live up to his reputation. When Charlotte's web had said SOME PIG, Wilbur had tried hard to look like some pig. When Charlotte's web said TERRIFIC, Wilbur had tried to look terrific. And now that the web said RADIANT, he did everything possible to make himself glow." - E.B. White
I was heading down the road the other day and noticed an older pickup truck in front of me. It's license plate read "Radiant". I laughed as I immediately thought about Charlotte's Web and Wilbur the "radiant pig". I have no idea whether the driver of the truck picked the word because of the book but it made me chuckle and wonder what that driver might be like. It may have been a "radiant" old farmer (my pick!) or a "radiant" teenage girl, who knows!
Whoever it was, they made my morning and I too will try to do everything possible to "glow". 😊
