"You 'BECOME' the horse said to the rabbit. 'It doesn't happen all at once. It takes a very long time. Generally by the time you are REAL most of your hair has been loved off and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But those things don't matter, because you are real, you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.' " >>> The Velvateen Rabbit

I really do have one! Or maybe more!
My son called this morning and in our conversation I was talking to him about a procedure that I had heard of that I thought would help his health. I do worry about him. Then I very proudly mentioned that his sister was giving me the best gift of all for my birthday (next week). She has been setting up a support system and telling everyone that she will have her last cigarette the night before my birthday. How awesome is that. Of course I mentioned to my son (he is a smoker,,,, again,,,) about how I worry about their health and would like to see them all quit! In a laughing voice (I think) my son said," you must have a row of soap boxes to step from one to the other".
I think that was a compliment. Maybe?
