On the way to pick up my son from wrestling practice I saw two women walking dogs. One of the women was laughing so delightedly I immediately felt envious of her friend and anyone else who knew her. I had an overwhelming desire to have her part of my life.
Then I wondered why I couldn’t be that laughing woman. I’d be the one that made other people glad to be alive — even strangers in cars picking up their sons from wrestling practice.
Good plan, but I’ll have to work through some issues first. And maybe get a dog.
The Awakening moved from Haines Point yesterday and the Washington Post covered it. Here’s a video that’s embedded on their website. I think the music is a little too cheerful.

Andrew’s wrestling team was featured, not once, but two times in the local newspapers this week. Kinda cool that the Washington Post is a local newspaper!
Both articles reinforce my point about Derek Manon being such a great coach and mentor.
