I'm Thankful

I can't believe the holidays are upon us already.  This year has flown and we're just days away from Thanksgiving!  If there's one thing I have been mindful of over this year it is to never wait for a specific day to give thanks.

The challenge for all is to realize that no matter what may be going on in your life, you always have something to be grateful for. But  please keep in mind that there are those who are less fortunate. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Never stop thanking those around you for eve…

Pass It On

I believe this too!

Check out a few of my favorite Pass It On commercials.

It's Election Day!

Today is the day to vote in the mid-term elections. Thanks to all who fought for the rights of women and people of color in the passage of the 15th and 19th Amendments which makes it possible for me to exercise my right this morning.

Please exercise YOUR right to VOTE today!
