HAPPY UPCOMING 2013!

Thinking back over the year, for scrapbooking purposes, I asked Jim what we did this year.  As we thought back, and then I went to retrieve the pictures, I discovered we had both forgotten a major event we attended in April.  How could we have forgotten that?  Both us of!  We do have a lot…

See me beautiful

I walked by a photo frame of lyrics this morning – well I walk by it every morning since it hangs on my wall, and I thought it would be good to post as my BLOG this week.  It is a song by Red Grammer (who we had the pleasure of working & dining with…

Positive and Thankful Thinking

The theme for today is Thanksgiving.  If I started to list all of the things I am thankful for, you might possibly witness me turn into a puddle of tears.  I don’t think anyone wants that, so we won’t go there. I’m sure you know someone who is just complaining about life every time you talk…

Who ate the kid’s candy?

I don’t know about you, but for me – Halloween through New Year’s Eve is a battle of the bulge.  People sometimes comment on what a strong will-power I must have not to eat all the typical junk food.  I confess, I don’t have a strong will-power… I just don’t have it in my house.…

Viet Nam Veteran’s Welcome Home

Back in March, my husband and I had the privilege to be volunteers, with the USO NC, at the Viet Nam Veteran’s Welcome Home Ceremony in Charlotte, NC.  Many of you know that I am an Army BRAT, and an Army mom, so my family is quite respectful of our military and their families, and…

Oh, the Possibilities

I have joined a Toastmasters group and the theme of tonight’s meeting is “Possibilities.”  What a great topic for my chosen field of work, life coaching  (shameless plug – grin)! I absolutely love the fact that every day is a new day.  When we wake up in the morning most of us have the option…

I love looking at old family photos

Timing is everything.  As I was wondering what to blog about this week, I saw a FaceBook post from my brother, “I was such a cute baby…”  Seems random, right?  What nobody knows is that I recently came across some of his baby pictures and mailed them to him.  Obviously, he received them today. Do…

Do we really have the “right-of-way?”

I was at Walmart today and saw a man almost get hit by a car that was backing up.  It was crazy.  I don’t think either one was really paying attention to their surroundings.  Yikes! I know the law says “pedestrians have the right-of-way,” but I would not walk out on a crosswalk into oncoming…

Atten-shun!

I’ve probably mentioned, before, that I am an Army BRAT.    Have I ever mentioned that I am also a sloucher?  Not slacker!  Sloucher. (Is that a real word?)  Let’s put it this way, my posture could be better, and I only have myself to blame. When I was younger, my dad would come up behind…

The kindness of strangers

I came across a first, for me, this week.  As I was heading into downtown Raleigh, for a meeting, I came to a major (like 5way, two lanes from each direction) intersection where the traffic light was out.  There was no police officer directing traffic.  Do you think I was a little nervous about sticking…
