Who could resist?

Okay so I'm a typical mom. I have to brag on my boy.

He made me a birthday card last night that read so beautifully. And not to take anything away from his heartfelt words, but part of the reason he did it was to make sure his card read better than my husband's did - because my husband's card made me cry. Little T wanted to beat his dad out!

(Okay this part made my heart smile....what mom doesn't love that from their child?)

Okay I'll retype the inside as it may be hard to read:
For my very (<---this X39) precios (and most beutiful) mother :) I say Happy Birthday to the prettiest girl on earth. -- your son :)

(Aww, he was laying it on thick. LOL)

One the back, he'd outlined his hand, and put T T cards inside. This was his logo.

He also drew a sheet of chore coupons, to be redeemed. There were 9 to the page, with cut lines drawn. It came with it's own bar code and pricing of 5.00. This was listed on the back, so if I wanted to buy more in the future I could. And of course it had his logo - outline of a hand with The T Store. It stated:

Our prices won't be beat!! GAURONTEED great savings!

Now that is great marketing people. Not only is he giving me a valuable gift, but I can buy something from him later. HA! He is going to be a wheeler and dealer when he starts in the business world. Watch out!

On a side note - I'm very blessed to have the people in my life that I do.  God has truly blessed me with a great family. 

My sis sent me some great flowers to my office yesterday... She's the best friend and sis a girl could have.

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, …
