Today, I actually overheard a conversation between a boy and his Mom. The 7 year old boy said, "Did you know that water is better for you than Gatorade" and the Mom replied with. "Yeah, but water is boring!" I was in complete shock. How could a parent teach their kid that something good for them is "boring" My favorite part was when the kid said in return, "Yeah, but water's better!"

On another note- today, as I was sitting at a park. I saw a little girl walk up to the park with her Dad. He had cancer. (I'm assuming) His head was almost bald, and he walked like every step was painful. She was full of life, unaware of the pain her father seemed to be in. It made me think how there is always some worse off than you are. In every place, there is someone going through a harder time that you are, and that we should all be thankful for what we have. No matter how bad we have it- how frustrated we get at times.... we are still alive, happy and healthy!
