My BIL and his 3 sons have had a rough time of it over the last few years. His wife walked out on him and has made for a sticky divorce. This week is his birthday and that of his middle boy so all the family that could make it took them to dinner last night to a Greek restaurant.

The oldest boy is in grade 11 and I asked why he looked so tired. He said he pulled an all-nighter Thursday to get a school project done. I asked him what it was, figuring it was science related. To my surprise, he said he had to write two poems and decided to do an epic poem instead of a simple one. This was music to my ears as I was an English major and wrote a one-act play in Grade 5! When I asked if he could email it to me, he lit up like a Christmas tree. We feel they aren't getting a lot of encouragement from their parents at the moment. So he thought for a second and asked if he could send more of his work too. I told him to send anything he wants.

I love encouraging young people and always have a smile for someone who loves the written word as much as I do!

"Aunt Lydia", you rock. Sounds like that nephew of yours needs a guardian angel. I'm sure your BIL will appreciate you helping his boy when he can finally come up for air.

Thank you, Cheryl and CG, for your kind words. They are great boys and I hate to see them caught in the middle as they are.

Last thing that made you smile?

My 8yo niece is saving up money to buy a sugar glider (a little high-maintenance type of flying squirrel.). I suggested to my SIL that a bat or snake would be easier to care for. Nope, niece wants a sugar glider. SIL needs to cut back on her daughter's allowance, she's getting close to affording one. Cracked me up!
