1)      A tonsillectomy – my youngest son had his tonsils taken out yesterday which means a lot of great things despite the large medical bill. a) He is going to breathe better and his sleep will less fitful; b) I can’t imagine what it would have been like for him if we did not have such wonderful technological and medical advances and c) what would we do without trained medical professionals? The little guy was brave and he is on the road to recovery.

2)      A Presidential hopeful – my 12-year-old son has been campaigning in his school elections in the hopes of being his class president. He has a great attitude and a winning smile but he prides himself most on the fact that he treats others with compassion. I think I could learn a thing or two from the kid. Good luck son!

3)      A dead battery – Nothing frustrates me more than a car that doesn’t work because nothing frustrates me more than not knowing how to fix the problem. Lucky for me I have had friends and family members teach me the basics over the years and jumping a car battery is one of those things. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than hearing an engine turn over and roar to life.
