Paint on the Plane

I read a story today about young girl who was travelling by airplane as an unaccompanied minor. The storyteller was sitting across the aisle from the little girl who everyone avoided at all costs.

Super Patient Boy

My mom has been struggling to recover from diverticulitis and is still tired and weak. Today, she felt her heart rate was very low.
