Unsung Survival

The Unsung Hero Winner was Eileen from Martinez, CA here is her Unsung Hero:

Sara Blue has always been there for me. She helped to save my life more than once. Helping me find freedom from addictions and guiding me back to Jesus. She helped me be the best mother I could be for my daughter Eden Grace when I was newly sober and a single mother. Now I have three years of meaningful recovery and just got married to the man of my dreams, who she introduced me to! Sara is my best friend and a strong sister in Christ and I owe my new life to her and that's why she is my Unsung Hero.

Tips for Dealing with Online Criticism, by Rachel Held Evans

Wait. Don't respond too quickly. Calm down first!

Engage the positive. Don't give too much power to the "negative." Honor the honest, positive feedback you get.

Don’t feel the need to respond to criticism that is intended to cause dissention.

Apologize if you have made a mistake!

Don’t let the praise carry you too high or the criticism drag you down too low.

18 Things a Mother Should Tell Her Son

1. Play a sport.  It will teach you how to win honorably, lose gracefully, respect authority, work with others, manage your time and stay out of trouble.  And maybe even throw or catch.

2. Use careful aim when going potty.  Somebody's got to clean that up, you know.

3. Save money when you're young because you're going to need it some day.

4. Allow me to introduce you to the dishwasher, oven, washing machine, iron, vacuum, mop and broom.  Now please go use them.

5. Pray and be a spiritual leader.

6. Don't ever be a bully and don't ever start a fight, but please defend yourself.

7. Your knowledge and education is something that nobody can take away from you.

8. Treat women kindly. Forever is a long time to live alone.

9. Take pride in your appearance.

10. Be strong and tender at the same time.

11. A woman can do everything that you can do.  This includes her having a successful career and you changing diapers at 3am.  Mutual respect is the key to a good relationship.

12. "Yes, ma'am" and "Yes, sir" still go a long way.

13. Peer pressure is a scary thing.  Be a good leader and others will follow.

14. Bringing her flowers for no reason is always a good idea.

15. Be patriotic.

16. Potty humor isn't the only thing that's humorous.

17. Please choose your spouse wisely.  My daughter-in-law will be the gatekeeper for me spending time with you and my grandchildren.

18. Remember to call your mother because I might be missing you.
