I had such an amazing time hanging out for an hour with this incredible little family. Some of my readers know Melanie from Hood College and thus you may know her story. All I want to say about it here is that it is inspiring to see how you may not be able to control every situation and its outcome but you can control how you deal with it and your attitude about it and for that, I am grateful that Melanie has chosen strength and awareness. And I am so happy that she is choosing to smile and that her kids are too. They are truly beautiful people and I only hope amazing things for them in the future.
