Laugh or Cry take your pick...  and your prayers too please.  

My Mom who is this wonderful, strong, supportive, positive thinker, loving woman was driving with her husband yesterday after a long day at the doctor's.  My step dad who is pretty wonderful himself had a tumor removed recently, and it appears that there may be other areas affected.  I wish I didn't have  to mention that they are malignant and that we are worried about his life.
I don't want to say the word of his illness as it may come to fruition.  We just want to think that this time will pass and that he is a healthy man who will live for many years to come.  
After a very difficult day yesterday, Eduardo was driving for the first time since his operation.  They are not  sure what happened but a very angry man started cussing at them and cutting them off.  If you have ever had this happened to you, you know that it is very upsetting.  They initially ignored the man, but he continued cutting them off and showing them the finger.  My Mom opened the window and yelled "we are Sorry" several
Tere, Marina, Eduardo and Valerie during Valerie's sweet 16th times.  Once she opened the window she could hear the actual cussing from the guy.  F&*&^, wet back  sob&*% you get the picture.  My Mom continued to mouth "I am sorry" and the angry man got even angrier and called her %#*@* "Democrat" *&%#*@*&, sob&*%.
They finally just slowed down and let the man move on.  She called me and was laughing so hard that she couldn't understand why would this guy think that she was a democrat.  I won't say what party she belongs to, as the point is how can someone can be so angry that because half the country doesn't agree with his thoughts that "Democrat" becomes an insult.
This is just one more life lesson from my Mom, who in a very difficult time chooses to laugh at such absurdity rather than letting her bring her down.
I tell this story because I want you to think and pray for Eduardo's health and wealth.  This situation has affected them in so many ways, that today I ask for your positive thoughts and prayers.  Many people have been cured miraculously, and I believe it is due to people praying and thinking of them.

I thank you in advance...

Tere, with everything going on in their lives, how special your Mom's positive attitude and sense of humor is.  Wishing you all only the best.  They say attitude is a large part of the recovery process.  If that's true then your step-dad has got it made.

My thoughts go out to you.  Never underestimate the POWER of positive thinking!  And I would have laughed at that crazy driver is too short to spend that much time and energy.
