My friend Cyndi was interviewed this week for a television news program in Bakersfield, California. Her sweet, quiet teenage daughter, Sarah Beth, recently died of a staph infection. I don't know how someone manages to keep going after such a loss. Cyndi is heartbroken, but she is brave and articulate in this interview about why she is thankful. I'm not sure I could be.

I am thankful for friends like Cyndi, who has been a dear friend since we were 12. And, of course, I'm thankful for my family, especially my healthy little boy.
