What does a great day look like?!

Here's what a great day looks like in Sharon's household - her son Derek has had a really tough year and been in and out of hospital many times, the most recent time being only two weeks ago, but is now on new medication and is feeling great.  So great, in fact, that he scored second best in the Special Olympics golf tournament, skills division, out of a field of around 40 golfers... and won a silver medal!!

Sharon says it was not only a great day for Derek, but for her whole family!

Stories like this just bring a surge of "that's what it's all about" to one's heart, don't they?  We all love it when our kids, young and old, achieve something that once we would never have thought they could.  It's magic just to see them beat the odds and come up smiling.  Derek has had a tough year, but he's really come up smiling this time!
