Hello blog readers!

My folks left this morning after a long weekend here.  We spent a lot of time sweating and commenting about the fact that it was as hot here as it was in Arizona.  Weird! 

My dad had a great session at the YMCA Healthy Living Center.  It’s been a year since he worked with Physical Therapist Trina Radske-Suchan so it was wonderful to hear her assessment.  Recovery requires patience and persistence.  No one in my family has much of the first, but thankfully we try to make up for it with a lot of the second!  If anyone you know and love is struggling after a traumatic illness or injury, I would highly recommend checking out the programs at the Y.

This article had me laughing out loud and thinking a lot about a letter to the editor my mom wrote when I was little.  I have got to find that thing so I can share it with all of you.  In the meantime, what do you think of this idea of trophy or POH?  I think it is hilarious, especially if you start applying it to grownup life.
