Ok, there's a lot of things, actually.
I've got to write this rather quickly, because I'm heading to work early today. I get to cover the excitement on the Norfolk State University campus, just hours before their first ever NCAA tournament game! And it just so happens NSU is playing my beloved Alma Mater, the University of Missouri. I have not revealed to my producers that I am the proud winner of more than a few "Miss Mizzou" awards, but I'm prepared to lock it up today and only casually convey my true colors. M-I-Z!
I wanted to share my story from last night, because it still has me smiling. It's not that often that we get to cover happy stories like this, so I always enjoy sharing them. I don't think it's the best one I've ever put together, but what matters is the little guy you get to meet...the happiest three-year-old ever. He's not slowed down-- for even a second-- by his cleft lip that 17 surgeries have failed to fix. This weekend, thousands of school kids in the area are running a mile to raise money for Joshua and other kids like him, via the Operation Smile organization. If you have a minute (1:26 to be exact), take a look and I bet you'll feel a big smile of your own, thanks to the story of his. And if nothing else, check out his Spiderman skills. He webbed us about a million times. :-)

P.S. A big congrats to my wonderful big sister, Megan. She found out this morning that she matched at Wake-Forest University for her Internal Medicine residency. I can't wait for the road trips to see her! Go Dr. Meg!
