Today is International Woman’s Day

I am a woman.
I am strong and kind.
I am loving and intelligent.
I am soft.
There is no one like me and I am not like anyone else.
I am unique.
I come from different backgrounds and nationalities.
I come in different colors.
I add life to the world.
I am a woman. ~Me

Happy International Woman’s Day!

Happy Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for?

The start of the 2013 holiday season begins tomorrow with Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for?


Are you thankful for everyone who makes up your day? Or maybe a strangers kindness? Food always brings people together. Even complete strangers in a brave new world.


What about all the delicious foods; like auntie Myrtle’s double stuffed stuffing? Reminds you of Oreo’s doesn’t it? Or how about being thankful just that you can get the date right on your Thanksgiving family dinner photo? LOL


What about being Thankful for your pets? Just so you know these dogs are part of the dog mafia and will exacting revenge as appropriate. These dogs look like they are going to pee in your shoes while you sleep just to show you. Just saying. 🙂


Are you thankful for your kids? Kids make life worth living. Hug your children and tell them how thankful you are for them. They really need to hear it!


Last, but certainly not least, how thankful are you that you have an official Thanksgiving dinner? Someone had to prepare this deliciousness to be gobbled up randomly for the next 3 days. I mean you must have the initial turkey dinner; then its on to turkey sandwiches, turkey casserole etc…and the list goes on and on for leftovers. Personally, this part of Thanksgiving represents weight gain.  But aren’t you thankful for the ability to gain 5-10 lbs all in the space of 1-2 days?

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fans, friends, and family. I thank God everyday for each of you and your continued support of not only the blog but for your encouragement during my healthier journey into weight loss.

I leave you with this verse from the Holy Bible:

” … give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”     1 Thessalonians 5:18

Veterans Day: Thank you Veterans!

Today is Veterans Day. This is not to be confused with Memorial Day. The difference is that Memorial Day is the day the United States honors those who died serving our country. Veterans Day is for those who served our country and came home. These men and women are truly our Heroes!


Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

YOU are who makes this country great.

YOU are truly America’s heroes!

YOU are what makes this country brave and strong.

If you see a Veteran today, tell them “Thank You”, and hug them.

May God bless each and every one of you who have served our country.

We can Forgive but We will never Forget

A horrible day in History for The United States of America.


Pray for those that lost their lives…


This is what hate does.


America is still the land of the free…you will not stop freedom and the people who will fight for this right.

Be jealous all you want of our grand abundant country, but don’t ever think we will let you do this again.

America is watching you…
