Tell Me Something Good #1

[With all the bad going on in the world – the economy, politicians exposing themselves, the war on terror, Oprah going off the air, NFL season in jeopardy, cats and dogs sleeping together – it’s about time we celebrated the good things in life. Here at Defying Procrastination, Tuesdays have now become “Tell Me Something Good” Tuesdays. Every Tuesday I will post something good that has happened to me or someone else in my life and I want you to do the same. Leave me a comment and Tell Me Something good that is going on in your world!]

Today marks the beginning of “Tell Me Something Good” Tuesday, and I have a few good things that I want to share with you.

*   My sister Janet, after years of battling the court system, had finally been approved for disability. She is in bad physical shape. She was told by her doctor that if she didn’t quit work she was going to risk serious bodily harm to herself, or worse. I’m so excited for her. Now she will get the medications and surgery she needs so she won’t be walking around in constant pain anymore.

*   My great niece Jaclyn is participating in the TN vs. GA Girls Softball All-star Game today. What makes the event even more special is that Jaclyn, along with her teammate Kayla, are the first girls ever chosen to represent Pikeville, TN. So very proud of her! Go WARRIORS!

* My little buddy Gavin spent all of last week participating in the Lone Star Leadership Academy program. Gavin was nominated by his teacher Mr. Poe based on his outstanding grades and being a role model for his fellow classmates. As part of the program he got to visit many amazing places; Cowboys Stadium, Ripley’s Palace of Wax Museum, Texas Stockyards, Amon Carter Art Museum, Cowgirl Museum, JFK Museum, Dallas Museum of Nature and Science, Electric Theater, IMAX, Texas Civil War Museum, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Ft. Worth Botanic Gardens, and the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. What an amazing experience and what an amazing young man.
