Earlier in the year I added a variety of "National Days" to a pocket calendar for different blog ideas. I didn't write them all down but some just made me smile, laugh, or think. This is one that had me jumping up and down, well, not really but it is an exciting day.
We get to eat anything we want today. (I'm not sure how this is different than most of my days lately, lol) Anyway, with this being said, if you could have the ultimate cheat day with no weight gain or other negative affects to your health...
What would you eat and why?
Are you looking for something fun to do this weekend? Delicious BBQ Chicken? Handmade goods, local authors, and more?
If so...Look no further...come to the First Congregational Church of New Haven, New York - located on State Route 104 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. If you'd like to get pre-sale tickets for the BBQ Chicken, call the church at 315-963-8253.
Remember: I now have the option to pay via credit card at craft shows and book signings. I hope this helps my readers out.
See You Saturday ~ May 13th, 2017
I found this article a few years ago and saved it for a future blog.
Here I am three years later, finally sharing it with you. The good news about this article is that although it's from 2014, the information within it still holds true today.
I hope you'll take time to check it out and leave a comment here or on Dr. Mary's website. This next image says, "It's OK, being broke happens" but I challenge you to think beyond this.
Does "being broke" HAVE TO happen or can your mindset change this?
What are your thoughts on this?
In a sense, it was because I wrote it as a gift to my parents to let them know how much they inspired me through their strength and courage. The premise is that when parents lose a child, they are like the broken glass in the lake or ocean. Although broken because of their pain and the constant beating from the waves of grief, illness, tragedy, and loss might feel like they are wearing them down but instead...this constant beating transforms them into a stronger and more beautiful version of themselves.
I can't understand first hand how they feel but as a daughter who watched her parents suffer a parents' worse nightmare, in addition to the gray hairs and pain, I saw and see strength, courage, patience, dedication, and beauty.
When the Waves Subside: There is Hope is dedicated to my parents and any parent who has lost a child. You are heroes and in so many people's prayers...never give up.
Who can you gift a book of hope to?
I love my job as an educator yet as I see the curriculum and standards change, Mother Goose and the classics I enjoyed as a child and shared with my daughter become a read aloud of the past. Let me encourage you to visit your local bookstore and library and read Mother Goose to your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and students. These classics offer more than a wealth of lessons, they are entertaining and help our kiddos learn to read and love reading too.
