I work for #1 Hospital in Michigan, Beaumont Health System:
When I was driving to work today I saw Beaumont Hospital’s New Billboard is being displayed already by I75. Felt so proud that I work for #1 hospital in Michigan. New outdoor and print advertising throughout southeastern Michigan highlights the three Beaumont hospitals being recognized in U.S. News & World Report’s first-ever Best Hospitals metro area rankings.
Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak is ranked first among Detroit metro area hospitals in the new Detroit metro rankings. Beaumont Hospital, Troy - ranked fifth - and Beaumont Hospital, Grosse Pointe - ranked eighth - are also among the Detroit area’s top-ranked hospitals.

Smallest story in the world:
For sale: baby shoes, never worn.—Ernest Hemingway (ERNEST HEMINGWAY AND THE SIX-WORD SHORT STORY)
"A great story. My initial interpretation was that the mother had had a miscarriage before her first baby was due (I assumed the shoes were a gift). This led her trauma and now she just wants to be rid of them. She does not give them away to anyone she knows so that she can remove herself as much as possible from the sentiment of the shoes. The shoes may also have been given by someone close, or she may have bought them herself, but I stick with that it was a gift. She places an ad in the newspaper instead of throwing them away as she wants someone else to be happy with the shoes, as they may have had sentimental value too (perhaps vintage)."
A Great Short Story To Read » Love and The Time Story. (Please read, I am sure you will enjoy)
Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.
Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment. When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.
Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said, “Richness, can you take me with you?”
Richness answered, “No, I can’t. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you.”
Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. “Vanity, please help me!” “I can’t help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat,” Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked, “Sadness, let me go with you.” “Oh … Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!” Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.
Suddenly, there was a voice, “Come, Love, I will take you.” It was an elder.
So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went his own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder, Love asked Knowledge, another elder, “Who Helped me?”
“It was Time,” Knowledge answered.
“Time?” asked Love. “But why did Time help me?” Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, “Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is.”
What is family?
According to wikipedia in human context, a family is a group of people affiliated by consanguinity (by recognized birth), affinity (by marriage), or co-residence/shared consumption. Members of the immediate family may include a spouse, parent, brother and sister, and son and daughter. Members of the extended family may include grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, nephew and niece, or sibling-in-law. In most societies the family is the principal institution for the socialization of children. As the basic unit for raising children, anthropologists most generally classify family organization as matrifocal (a mother and her children); conjugal (a husband, his wife, and children; also called nuclear family); avuncular (for example a brother, his sister, and her children); or extended family in which parents and children co-reside with other members of one parent’s family.
Accordingly to my definition family is they were the people who claimed you, loved you and stayed by you in good, in bad, in parts or in whole, they were the ones who showed up, who stayed in there, regardless. It wasn’t just about blood relations or shared chromosomes, but something wider, bigger. We have many families over time. Our family of origin, the family we created, and the groups you moved through while all of this was happening: friends, lover, sometimes even strangers. As you get to know them, you connect with them, you become part of the whole family. It requires trust, respect and compromise or scarify. Sometimes you might have scarify here and there or your own happiness for the love of the family.
Well, however you explain the definition of family none of them are perfect and we couldn’t expect them to be. You can’t make any one person your world. The trick was to take what each could give you and build your world from it. Love them, care about them, support them when they need you the most. Isn’t what we all suppose do anyway?
