This week, I have to say, the winner of my “gratitude attitude” appreciation award has been my son, Justin. Over the past several months he has successfully navigated his way through two completely new camps, a new school placement, swimming lessons in a foreign locale, and has been adored by all. In a landmark move, he’s even consistently allowed me to trade his sneakers for Tivas when heading to the beach. This true first has precluded me from the time-honored Jersey shore tradition of scraping every speck of sand off of not-so-tiny feet before replacing sneakers for the long trek to the car (I am almost as grateful for the latter as I am for the acclimation to the new camps and schools.) I am, as always, exceedingly proud of him.
Thank you Justin!
