Love Will Not Be Lost

Effile Tower

We have to remember to find compassion in such a dark world.  It is that same compassion that causes the light to shine through.

With all that is going on in the world recently, it is important to take a moment to be conscious of others in bondage, others suffering, and others simply trying to live.  We often take our every day lives for granted and do not realize how great we have things until large scale situations happen evoking fear and breeding ignorance.  Let’s take a moment to stop and in fact smell the roses, and spread some peace, love, and rock & roll.

Brighten Someone’s Day

Stopped into Walmart earlier: The cashier who rung me up was easily in her 80s. What bothered me is at her age her only worry should be if she should take a nap before Judge Judy or after, not whether the computer/register system in front of her scanned a customers stuff correctly. I sincerely hope that things get better for people, especially for those who should be retired and enjoying life after working hard for so many years. It shouldn’t come down to applying for yet another low paying job just to pay for medications, health care, or food.


Have a wonderful Friday! 😀


Realistic Holiday Health



We just passed Halloween and now have bags of candy tempting us by saying it’s okay to eat 1 or 10 pieces for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner.  Without missing a beat, I’ve seen close to 20 (so far) images with workout guides and the horrors of gaining weight over the last two months of the year.  The incentive is to lose your holiday weight now and not wait (weight lol) until the New Year to declare your new super awesome fitness goals.  I think it’s a bit presumptuous of anyone to start shoving protein shakes or whatever weight loss thing down anyone’s throat or assume we are all planning to go into a food coma by sitting at the dining table shoveling mashed potatoes in our mouths in a last ditch effort to have one more bite in the name of Thanksgiving or other holiday meals.

Get Out and Vote



It’s election day today and I wanted to remind you to get out there and make your voice heard.  If you are over 18, registered, and able to do so, you should vote.  If you are not registered, I hope you take the time to do so.  Nothing will change if we sit idly by complaining and wishing for things to get better.

I bring my son with me every time I vote.  I want him to understand how important the process is no matter which political affiliation he grows up supporting as an adult.  I always remind him how even when he was a little baby, literally a few weeks old, I wrapped him up and brought him with me to vote in 2008.  Most people thought I was nuts to drag an infant out in the cold (it was really cold that November for some reason) just to cast a ballot.  I didn’t care.  Even if it were a blizzard, world ending, aliens attacking, whatever – I’m getting out there to the polls.

For my PA friends:  Find your polling place 

Polls close at 8pm so get out there after work or get in line before you go to work if you work nights.
