Quote of the Week

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.” – Paulo Choelho

Fact of the Week

Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all died within 10 months of each other, all of drug-related causes, all at 27 years old (it doesn't state this, but they all started with Js too.....)

Joke of the Week

Dad’s pager beeped, summoning him to the hospital, where he is an anesthetist. As he raced toward the hospital, a patrol car sped up behind him—lights flashing, siren blaring. So Dad hung his stethoscope out the window to signal that he was on an emergency call. Within seconds came the policeman’s response: a pair of handcuffs flapping outside the police car window.

Brendon Graduates From Drug Court

I have waited for this day! Brendon graduates from Drug Court!
This poor kid has had some serious obstacles in his life.
He took life by the horns and tamed his addiction.
Here he is going through the graduation line
He asked me to be his speaker. It was really hard and, of course, I cried. But I was in good company, all of the parents cried. 
I feel like it was a special bond though.
Proud mama moment!
Proud family moment!
These are his dog tags that he can wear all of the time to remind himself how strong he is and to never let his addiction take control again.
Brendon and his diploma
and his coin

Here is the program

the proud graduates
I am very proud of you, Brendon! I know you have worked long and hard on this one. Remember who you are (my son!) and don't ever forget that you are worth it and nothing else is worth more than your life! Love Mom!
