For thousands of years humans have searched for the fountain of youth. This literal and metaphorical spring is said to restore the youth of anyone who drinks or bathes in its waters. Ponce de Leon went in search of this fountain in the 1500s, and the stories of Alexander the Great talk about a journey to find the fountain. It’s in our art, our books, and our films. While most of us understand this legend is just a myth, wouldn’t it be nice if we could do something to restore just a little bit of our youth? I look at my pictures from high school and think, “I totally still look like that!” Then when I see an actual high schooler, I realize, “no I don’t”. The reality is, even if I don’t feel older, I am getting older. And, sorry to break the news, but so are you.
We know, we know our blogs are simply amazing. And normally have a little bit of humor added into them too. But, coming from our medical lab deliveries Dallas team, we wanted to focus on something a little bit more serious for this blog- family. Especially during a time when so many natural, and not so natural disasters are occurring in our country. We believe that many times the idea of family is strongly taken for granted, especially during the summer season when everyone seems to have their own schedules. But, we urge you. Make the effort to get everyone together at least one night a week for some good old fashioned family fun, or a nice family dinner. Because, at the end of the day, others come and go, but your family will always be there. Sure, we know, you probably had a fight with your sister just last week, but call her up and tell you’re sorry, because you never know what could happen in the blink of an eye.
