~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
"In one of my parishes," wrote a pastor, "there resided a school superintendent and his family. They lived through a time of great tension between the School Board and the teachers' union. They even received threats that their home would be burned.
Their son David had the highest SAT scores in the school, a triple A rating on the tuba, was extremely active in school functions, had an almost 97% average, yet was blackballed from the National Honor Society because of the feud between the administration and the teachers. His parents were heartbroken, but after some brief moments of anger and resentment, David announced: 'I don't need them to tell me who I am.'

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
When we moved cross-country, my wife and I decided to drive both our cars. Nathan, our eight-year-old, worriedly asked, "How will we keep from getting separated?"
"We'll drive slow so one car can follow the other," I reassured him.
"Yeah, but what if we get separated?" he persisted.
"Then I guess we'll never see each other again," I quipped.
"Okay," he said, "I 'm riding with Mom.”
