DID YA MISS ME?

Good Morning Y’all! I know it’s been a hot minute since I have written anything for my blog and I apologize for leaving y’all hanging. It wasn’t intentional, I promise. Somewhere in the middle of Camp NaNo, I think I lost my drive to write. I finished six days early and I couldn’t bring myself … Continue reading DID YA MISS ME?

RIP ANTHONY BOURDAIN

Hello, my friends. This day has been pretty heavy for me and I cannot believe that Anthony Bourdain has committed suicide. This is the second death this week from suicide and it has given me a reason to pause and reflect upon why this is happening. We look at famous people and think they must … Continue reading RIP ANTHONY BOURDAIN

BE THE BIGGER PERSON, PLEASE

Good Morning My Friends, I am having a hard time not being angry at Kelly Sadler (LINK) “joking” and saying “John McCain is dying anyway.”  It all started because John McCain was urging the Senate to vote against Gina Haspel, Donald Trump’s pick for C.I.A. Director. I wrote a piece on her earlier this month, … Continue reading BE THE BIGGER PERSON, PLEASE

BE…

Since Donald Trump announced his candidacy, I have tuned into the news every waking moment. The moment he glided down the gold-plated escalator announced that he was running for president and that Mexican people are rapists, drug dealer and some are good people, he guesses. Has he never met a person who is Hispanic that … Continue reading BE…

RIP MRS. BUSH/WHERE IS THE LOVE?

This will not be a long post. I am having a hard time focusing on writing today. I am continuing yesterday’s theme. Today, (Wednesday as I write this) a large number of people are mourning the loss of Mrs. Barbara Bush and I am one of them. I may not have agreed with her husband … Continue reading RIP MRS. BUSH/WHERE IS THE LOVE?

GUN CONTROL IS OVERDUE

I am writing this on the one-month anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where 17 individuals lost their lives and 14 more were injured by a lone gunman. Today nearly a million students walked out of school to demand gun control by our government. These students acted without violence but made … Continue reading GUN CONTROL IS OVERDUE

#ENOUGH

I don’t know about you, but I have had ENOUGH! I am angry, literally angry that today children across this country on the one month anniversary of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will walk out of their schools to march in protest the lack of movement by the President, Congress, and the … Continue reading #ENOUGH

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY (belated)

As I am writing this, it is Thursday evening and International Women’s day. I wanted to write about a few women in my life that have helped shape the woman I have become and I thought it would be good to end the week on a positive note. My mom is the strongest woman I … Continue reading INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY (belated)

ME

Why I do what I do… I was the person who donated clothes to Goodwill, donated money at Christmas to the red kettles, gave food to the local food bank a few times a year and I thought I was doing good. Don’t get me wrong, donating when you are able too is wonderful. There … Continue reading ME

HEALTHCARE IS OUT OF CONTROL

I wrote this blog about a week or so ago so I would have something ready in case I was sick or unable to post, but I think this fits with what is happening right now. I cannot imagine the hospital bills of the survivors of the school shooting. Well, I can imagine, I spent … Continue reading HEALTHCARE IS OUT OF CONTROL
