    A debt collector yelled at me this morning. I tried to yell back - but I think she hung up the phone before I got to that point.

    Instead of rambling on and on about what I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving, I thought it would be much more interesting for me to write about (and for you to read about) what a 4-year-old little boy is thankful for and my son, Owen, was the perfect candidate.

    Sitting around my mother’s dinner table last week, while Owen was eating his Spaghetti O’s, I got out a piece of paper and a pen and told my son I wanted to interview him.

    Marion-Nelson-Washing-ton Diabetes Coalition has good news about diabetes.
