Holiday time

This is supposed to be a happy time of the year and usually it is. For my family, this is a bittersweet time because my Mom took a turn for the worst last year this time (Thanksgiving week.) So this is the first Thanksgiving without her. Then 2 days before Thanksgiving this year, my cousin died. And my sister lost her Mom earlier this year so this was her first Thanksgiving without her Mom. WOW!!! Not going to make the usual trite remarks that don't make anyone feel any better. I don't know why things happened the way they did for my family over the course of 1 year. Are we still blessed? Of course! Can we feel it now? Probably not. My cousin's family is mourning the loss of a son, brother who had not experienced all that life has to offer yet. Yes this pain will pass in time. But in the meantime, life goes on. I am grateful for the years I had with my Mom, my cousin and my sister's Mom. It makes me appreciate the friends and family that are still with me. So let me remind you to tell friends and family that you love them whenever you can. It will be appreciated. Don't forget the laughter of your friends and loved ones. Continue to enjoy life. I think they would want us to do that. Much love to all of you.

Have a happy, full-filling and blessed Thanksgiving. Count your blessings for they are many. Remember those who are no longer with us and celebrate their lives, laughter, love. Enjoy your day. Take lots of pictures and eat lots of food.

8 gifts that do not cost a cent

1. The gift of listening, really listening. 2. The gift of affection-be generous with hugs and kisses. 3. The gift of laughter-share articles, cartoons, funny stories. 4. The gift of a written note-a brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime. 5. The gift of a compliment-a sincere word can make someone's day. 6. The gift of a favor-every day go out of your way to do something kind. 7. The gift of solitude-be sensitive to the times when you (or someone you know) just want to be alone. 8. The gift of a cheerful disposition-the easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone like Hello or Thank you.

Today's thought

Work like you don't need the money, Love like you're never been hurt and dance like no one's watching.

Happy holidays

Hi Gang,
Just want to wish you all a full-filling Thanksgiving holiday. We, as Americans, have much to be thankful for. Be sure to count your blessings-family, friends, pets, job, the ability to walk, talk, think, the beauty of a sunset or sunrise, food in the fridge, a roof over your head, a great business idea-whatever your blessings, count them! Remember, what you say is what you get so be mindful of what you say.

God bless America!!! Change has come to America. The world was watching to see if America would be it's money where it's mouth is. Now let's get behind this new President and lift his hands high. Keep him and those around him in prayer. "No weapon formed against Barack Obama shall prosper." THIS IS AWESOME.

Well, I just voted. As a matter of fact, I was at my polling place before 6AM. Some interesting tidbits: Let's look at the numbers. November is the 11th month. 11 and any double number is a master number. Very powerful. Today is the 4th. 4 is the number of foundation. 2008 reduces to the number 1 (8 + 2 = 10 = 1) which means unity. 4 and 1 equal 5 which is the number of CHANGE. (That is the message of this election.) Obama is 44 years old. There is that double number again. Check out numerology for more details. YES WE CAN. CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN.

Let's do this!!!

OK people. The world is watching America. Do you know why? Because they want to see if this country is really "the land of the free and the home of the brave." Can any child grow up to be President or is it just the usual hype and lies of the racist few? First of all, people of color need to realize once and for all that if someone is trying this hard to keep you down, then you must have something great to offer. Study your history, Black people. Look at the contributions of Blacks in this country. Look at the struggles. Our slavery is still present when someone can yell "terrorist" at a campaign rally and no one stops them. But get a grip, Black people. We may have been brought here against our will but this country was built on our backs. And for you Christians, "all things work together..."It was obviously in the scheme of things for us to get here. Well, we are here and have been here for a long time. Now is time for us to step up to the plate and hit it out of the park. Stop the negative talk. We have someone here who is for ALL the people. We haven't had that since the Constitution was written (probably). Stop saying Obama is not Black enough. What the hell does that mean? There's not a pure Black, Asian, Indian or white person in this country. Because the people in power were raping the women. So what is Black enough? And stop tripping over his name. Did you choose your name or did your parent(s) give it to you? White folks, stop tripping over his color. Must be good to be brown, black, yellow, red. You spend billions of dollars trying to get what we have naturally. The question is, is this the dream MLK talked about? I think so. And stop making excuses for not voting for Barack. "Well, if I vote for him, someone may try to kill him." (This come from people who call themselves born again Christians.) Whose report are you going to believe? Can the God of all creation take care of this man and those associated with him? Can He give him long life? Get out and vote for this man with the strange name who has a plan for this country. Don't believe the hype that it's in the bag. It's in the bag when you vote for Barach Obama on Tuesday. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, etc to vote for Obama and let's turn this country around.
