Over the past few weeks, I‘ve been hearing good and positive news, in many ways.
· A lady, whose daughter just got married and is a young teacher, is now getting long term teaching assignments … her new husband about to get his engineering ‘ticket’ of choice.
· A young man after teaching 9 years overseas and who, after several years of applying, is finally accepted into teacher’s college here.
· Several people who, after many treatments, have overcome the scourges of cancer.
· An extremely bright young man, under the influence of being newly married, has decided to go back to university … achieving marks in the 90’s.
· A person, recently divorced, buying a new home and making a fresh start, in an otherwise accomplished life.
· Families working together to care for young children – within limits – that helps all concerned.
· People coming to retirement with grace and dignity and embracing the future.
· Folks immediately showing the courage to engage life again, after the death of a life partner.
· Others, who struggle daily, slowly crawling out of the abyss from some ongoing and chronic condition to, never-the-less, smile at the world.
· Volunteers and friends helping out others in need, in so many ways.

We all have “special needs” to overcome; and we need to do the best we can, when we can, to get there.
