As Emilie is slowly coming out of isolation, her docs are allowing more variety in her diet and while Paul (peanut allergy = no Chinese) is away at Camp Attitude, she decided she'd like Chinese food. After dinner, she and Nicolas split 6 fortune cookies among themselves. We don't believe in fortunes delivered in crunchy cookies, but usually make funny jokes about the fortunes or try and guess one another's lucky numbers. After Emilie read the above fortune, she said, " Well, I already have 4 wheels and I am already happy!". Really, it's no joke that Emilie got this message in her fortune cookie. It is amazing that this is a girl who has been through 2 years of pokes, prods, poison and pain but has such a positive and happy attitude. Emilie is truly a gift and is an example of how all of us should live.
The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions, and not on our circumstances. We carry the seeds of the one or the other about with us in our minds wherever we go. Martha Washington
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.
The dictionary is the only place where success comes before work. Hard work is price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you are willing to pay the price.
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.
Corrie Ten Boom
About the only problem with success is that it does not teach you how to deal with failure. Tommy Lasorda

One of my favorite lines from a crazy movie>>>
*Reach* out. Take a *chance*. Get *hurt* even. But play as well as you can. Go team, go! Give me an L. Give me an I. Give me a V. Give me an E. L-I-V-E. LIVE! Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room.
