crossing over to my other blog for a second

I just wanted to make sure the readers of this blog, were aware of a little challenge I've posted at my other site, Daily Blessings. Please visit this link : http://blessed1.wordpress.com/2007/04/05/a-challenge-posted-for-all-bloggers/

I'll post just a little excerpt so you can get the jist of what it's about:

*****
Listening to the news on any given day, anyone can hear how dissatisfied most Americans are with the current economy, Presidency, modern day religion…well just about anything. I get so tired of hearing about what is wrong with our country, that I want to scream, “Can anyone tell me what is right? What is just? What is good?”

Can anyone explain to me what they’re happy about? If one person a day would focus on the good things in life, wouldn’t that ripple effect into someone else doing the same? Positivity can be contagious. We all know negativity is….so I propose for one week we try to do the opposite.

This Sunday is EASTER, the celebration of Christ’s rising from the dead. That certainly is a reason to celebrate for those of us in this world that believe. For those of you who don’t — I still challenge you to take Easter Sunday and start something positive.

CALLING ALL BLOGGERS—FOR ONE WHOLE WEEK STARTING THIS SUNDAY:

Post what you’re thankful for each day for 7 whole days…even if it’s something small. If you do this, link it back to my site: http://blessed1.wordpress.com/2007/04/05/a-challenge-posted-for-all-bloggers/

I’d like to track how many of you do this. I think you’d be amazed at how counting your blessings can lift your spirits and teach you to be truly thankful.

****

For those of you, who are up to the challenge...please take this on. It's not a game to get traffic, it's simply a way to spread some positive thinking. It's my gift of gratitude to you all.

Love in Christ to you all and may your blessings be counted!!!

Voting is like a PBJ

So, yesterday was voting day for many offices like County Clerk and Congress.   I always want to educate myself on the many issues and campaign trailblazers so I can make my voice count.  Voting is our God-given right which wasn't even acknowledged by our nation until the women's suffrage movement.  Many of our great - great grandmothers met, marched, and went on strike to strive for the right to vote.
When I hear anyone I come in contact with say that due the fact that they don't like anyone on the ballot they're not going to vote - it blows my mind!  We are blessed with that privilege!  And even if you don't like anyone, to not vote is still casting a vote because your voice isn't heard.  
Think of it like this:   What if there was only a choice between peanut butter or jelly - and the popular vote would bring to light what we're allowed to eat.   If you say, 'Well, I don't like either, so it doesn't matter!'  Then you choose not to vote.…

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.


I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …
