The Importance of Punctuation

My friend just sent me an email, and she changed her signature at the end of the email this year, with a new quote as her year's motto. I knew the ending punctuation was not a period, but I wasn't really paying attention as I skimmed it.
It ACTUALLY read:
Every child...Everday!!!
In my MIND I saw:
Every child....Everyday?!?
When I realized what my eyes had 'seen'...I laughed. It kinda reminds me of the bookends of a school year. The beginning=hope, the end=hanging on. Truly, despite the human nature that kicks in.....it's a great job, and it's so amazing to see so many people there because their hearts are too big to do anything else.
