Call Somebody!!!

Yes, we are beginning the "holiday season" and it is time to make some calls. Don't get scared. It doesn't have to be tedious or long. Just make up your mind, your goal is to see how they are, not get their years accomplishments. At the beginning of the conversation ask them if you are calling them at a good time. And if they hesitate offer to call them back at a time they have agreed upon. Make a list of people you have been meaning to call and call somebody! Instead of Christmas shopping how about Christmas phoning???!! Let me know your thoughts, inspirations and memories....

Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Hannachah, help me here guys????!!!!

Sharing Your Thanksgiving

This is something I have done a lot. I would do this on Thanksgiving and in the summer time. I would make a Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings then I would invite people over (if Thanksgiving I would invite people that didn't have family or didn't have someone to spend Thanksgiving with, if summer I would just invite people that were new to the church or area). I would make the turkey, dressing, vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy etc. You get the picture. It was so much fun and it gave me the opportunity to meet some new friends. Now you don't have to have a big budget to do this, you can ask the people you invite to bring dishes. The point of this is "Sharing Your Thanksgiving" and helping someone to feel the love!

Okay let me know how it goes and the ideas you have about this. This is my favorite meal of the year!

Take Care Everybody!

Sorry everyone for my slight break. I was trying to get over an ear infection and sinus infection. Thanks Jan for being a good neighbor and making me soup. My friend Jan is an excellent neighbor(my roomie) and friend. She not only made me soup, she served it to me. I just want to take this moment to thank her. Thank you Jan for your kindness, generosity and ability to put up with me. So todays entry is about taking care of one another! Next time someone you know is sick or incapacitated take care of them. You will be glad you did and so will they!

Carribean Hospitality!

I just came back from a 8 day carribean cruise. Sorry guys, that is why you have not heard from me in a while. Well I have to say the West Indies/Virgin Islands know how to show hospitality (shout out to all my island people)to visitors! First of all, they are not afraid to greet you with a smile and a handshake. They are willing to help strangers and to accept you eventhough if you are a foreigner. They are willing to put you up for a night or a vacation. They don't mind helping someone else profit because they know in the end it is the right thing to do. I have really learned somethings in the last eight days that I think I will help me in the future and maybe even change some of the ways I do things presently.
