Got to laugh every day.

   I'm so glad the weather is good because it's been an interesting week, to say the least. On Tuesday I interviewed a fellow who is struggling not to lose his battle with Leukemia. He's got three kids under the age of 12 and a great wife. Next day,  the story of the 16 year old in Queensbury, a football player- all around great kid by all accounts: killed by, as of this writing, an unidentified bacteria. Later in the day my husband calls and tells me that the wife of a college friend of his was found dead in bed. She was a vibrant woman with a thriving business. Okay then. If you're complaining about little things - STOP - if you're not carving out time to love and laugh- START.

I love the people who think they're owed something. Nah, doesn't work that way. We've got to embrace the good stuff, file the bad stuff and soldier on when it's dull. Then again, sometimes, the dull roar of life is really the most delightful sound you can hear.
