Oh my Michael J Fox, you are so right!!! You wouldn't choose certain things for yourself but you make what you have been given the best you can and stay positive. I do believe there are reasons for everything. I would not have chosen the disease, cystinuria, for my 3 kids (14, 13, and 10) and over the last 9 years of watching them overcome pain and obstacles of passing kidney stones all the time has made them strong people with great characters. The love for life and good days in our house is amazing. I am so much like you Michael, with the little sayings. I love "if you imagine the worse case scenerio and it happens, you've lived it twice" I'm stealing that one!! Thx! Yes, imagine the positive, the good in this world. A positive attitude makes a difference! God Bless You Michael and Ellen for all you do to help others and supporting such good causes. True inspirations. Maybe I will write a book !
Phillip Phillips YEAH!!!! I bet you miss him, he is such an amazing person (so down to Earth and humble). He is so very talented, wish him the best!We completely empathized with him and know how hard he pushed through the pain to win his title. My 3 kids have cystinuria and do this ALL the time (suffer in silencce). My son (10) had surgery on his stones the same time he did. Can't wait to see him on Ellen!!!! She is my kids' inspiration and hero . They love her huge, kind heart! Oh yes, and she is funny too!
Excited to see the talented and just good natured, Phillip Phillips! He has something in common with my 3 kids (14, 13, and 10)-KIDNEY STONES!! Yuk! We really empathized with him like no one else as my 14 yr old does this routinely (goes through life with the pain of kidney stones, she suffers in silence). As a matter of fact, watch her on You Tube-"Allison Bare, Fanatasie Impromptu". She is playing this in pain having 3 obstructing stones requiring an emergency transport to Children's in Pittsburgh the next day. Unbelieveable. I have AMAZING and talented kids too!
Congrats on your 10th season! We live by your closing statement, "Be Kind to One Another"!! God Bless!
