It Could be a Wonderful Life

Author: Richard Carter As I walked through the hospital waiting room I glanced up at the TV. The Miracle on 34th St. was just beginning.  I signed in and luckily for us they were busy in the treatment area. It took a while for them to call us back and we got a bit of […]
