I hope we have millions of Itty-Bitty Giant Steps.

Here are this week’s Itty-Bitty GIANT Steps

Gill Evans (caregiver)…Hubby informed me this afternoon that his world is a better place mitzvah-clipart-teapot-clip-art-free-retro-cup-o-tea-valentine-clip-art-old-design-shop-blogfor my being in it. And then, he offered to make me a cup of peppermint tea. Bonus! Unfortunately, he got distracted, and I got black coffee with a peppermint tea bag in it. Ah, well! It’s good that we can laugh, isn’t it?

Don't Ever Give Up 3Lee Staniland (survivor)…Man, oh man! I have been going around and around with Time Warner. The bill was way high, so I called and got it down a lot. Then, when I went to pay the bill, it wasn’t in the system yet. I was told to wait a few days. I did, and the bill still wasn’t in there. So, I bitched and bitched and went through at least three people. I finally got it down some, and I thought it was over. Well, they just called me. The bill was even lower, and I have all kinds of the stations, like HBO and all the good ones. IT PAYS NOT TO GIVE UP!

Linda Wells (survivor)…Exciting news! I will receive this year’s Survivor Honoree Award from the Brain Injury Center (BIC) of Ventura County. This means a lot to me. 1 Linda Wells 10847281_10203718509225374_5703501535919960786_oMy dear late husband, Rex, and I are two of the founders of the BIC. gold-award-ribbon-clipart-RIBBON_AWARDIt started in a living room with six other people. Rex looked and looked for a place for all of us to fit in. That is how it happened to go from a living room to now – “An Evening of Magical Memories.” I am honored that I have been chosen this year. I intend to continue to educate all. Thank you, BIC!

YOU did it!

Congratulations to all contributors!
