    I’m a Grateful Person #gratitude

    Every November we take a moment to either express our gratitude or our thankfulness. But like the saying says, Happy people are actually grateful, it is the other way around. Those who are grateful are happy. For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson   I am grateful for everything in my life. Such as: the support of my family the job I have with my employer the feedback from my readers the education provided by my professors for the grades, I have received having a pup like Keelaa for…

    Turkey Day Disasters

    Thanksgiving – In the US, it is time for family gatherings loaded with dysfunction. We all have at least one dysfunctional family member that we hope and pray decide to visit the other family member this time around. But just because that family member has decided to spare us a visit this year doesn’t always necessarily mean that we won’t have a Thanksgiving mishap. They happen. Life happens. I remembered my first Thanksgiving mishap many moons ago. My son was just a baby. That was well over twenty-five years ago. I was tired of having the same old thing for Thanksgiving and wanted to try my hand at changing things…
