I don't know if there is a better feeling in the entire world than gazing upon your children and husband and seeing pure happiness and JOY on their faces. Moments like that are precious. It was May 2009. My daughter, Elle, was just released the day before from Utah Valley Regional Medical Center after having pneumonia.

As the elementary school's PTO health coordinator, I was in charge of field day. It was incredibly stressful and loads of work. But on the day, my entire family was there to support me and help make this one of the best school days in the life of hundreds of children.

Joe coordinated the tug-of-war contest. With his dynamic and warm personality, the tug-of-war was decidedly the favorite event. My two oldest children were in junior high at the time, but weren't "too cool" to come, encourage, and contribute. Gosh! This was one day in my life, I would love to re-live. The sky was blue, the sun was shining, the weather warm, my family was healthy and happy-all was right with the world--at least in my world.
