about my gifts. They were all lovely but the most special wasn’t wrapped because it was a Christmas e-mail. A couple who I had a business transaction with several years ago wrote, “We were reflecting on people in our lives that we appreciated and made an impact. You are someone we definitely appreciate.” I was touched.
It made me realize how a small gesture like that e-mail can have such impact. Many people have touched my life and I am better for it. It’s time they knew.
I would like to begin with YOU. Yes, you, because you are reading my blog.
I started my blog in March, which was the beginning of the Pandemic.
Not only did it give me an outlet for my passion to write, I wanted to bring a smile to others. But I needed people to read it. I’ve been a pest in promoting my blog and I’ll continue to do so. But for those of you who are following me and supporting my passion, I can’t thank you enough. By the way, tell your friends, family and everyone you know on social media to check out WISE.
Thank you again for being here with me. You touch my life every week.

The only person who is with you your entire life, is yourself.
Ignoring the facts doesn’t change the facts.

One Christmas, a mother decided she was no longer going to remind her kids to send thank you notes. Consequently, the kids’ grandmother never received any thanks for the Christmas checks she sent to the kids.
However, all the kids stopped by in person to thank their grandmother for their checks.
When a friend asked what caused this change in behavior, the grandmother replied, “Simple. This year I didn’t sign the checks.”

    Some times a text or an email received from a friend you haven’t heard from in a long time can make your day. As it turns out, I received such a text just this morning and it did make my day 🙂

    I see comments sometimes from Cathy Seine here. I hope more people from the writer’s group are supporting you. It’s really a good blog!

    The politics and lockdown are really getting to me. I needed an upper, so my finger tips led me to your blog. Always a bright something or other gives pause to ponder or just a much needed chuckle. I love the wise, feisty grandmother not signing her Christmas check to her family members. Onwards Grandmom! Hurray, hurray!!!!!!!
