Weekend Wild Card 7.30-7.31

It's the last weekend in July. Enjoy the sun. Enjoy your family. Be kind to each other in spite of the ongoing national debt debacle.

The best antidote for frightening times is living life in the moment. Embrace what is and leave the worry for Monday morning and DFO to handle.

Today is my father-in-law's funeral. There will be tears for sure, but also joy. Four children, 14 grandchildren and he loved us all well. That's something to celebrate.

Tell us what you'll be celebrating this weekend or let us know what else is on your mind on this Wild Card.
