Saturday was my daughter Milan’s 9th birthday. Unfortunately, she came down with strep throat and was sick on her special day. We made the most of it – she’s such a trooper – and are continuing the celebration as she is feeling better. Advil, antibiotics and presents all helped to perk her up a bit. Ahem. The Quote of the Week comes from this journal I gave to her full of positive sayings.
My birthday girl chose, “Never Give Up,” as the theme for this week; and I think her choice is a great message for everyone. Most things we want in life take work and there are often obstacles in our way. Many times its easier to give up than to keep going, but if we just stay the course, be patient, and push through the challenging times we can reach our goals.

Happy Monday, and remember to Never Give Up!
