Happy childhood memories are a blessing, so I cherish the good ones and try not to dwell on the bad. One of my favorite childhood memories is turning 40 today, Sesame Street. They taught me to count in English and Spanish. I learned about sharing, good manners, patience and compassion. I laughed often and watched daily. Even today, I hum the songs, know all the original characters and come to attention when I hear their familiar voices. My first crush was Kermit the Frog and all these years later, I am still smitten.
