Veterans Parking Only

While visiting Culver’s to get a Turtle Sundae I noticed this parking sign really close to the front door.

     A lot of businesses in the United States of America give perks, discounts and freebies to servicemen and women but this was the first time I’ve ever seen a permanent parking space designated for Veterans. How cool is that?

     Veterans Day is an official United States federal holiday that is observed annually on November 11, honoring people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans.

Joke of the Week:

I am a five letter word.
Take away my first letter, and I still sound the same.
Take away my last letter, I still sound the same.
Even take away my letter in the middle, I will still sound the same.
What am I?

Weird Fact of the Week:

A study in Practical Pain Management found that more than eighty percent of those with headaches felt significant relief after putting menthol on their forehead or temples.

What I personally use and recommend is Siang Pure Oil to alleviate any discomfort associated with headaches or itchy insect bites.

It’s affordable on any budget and it actually works!

I order mine online and it’s shipped via Thailand post.

Weeping Willow Tree and Me

These beautiful trees are found through North America, Europe and Asia.

My sponsor child wrote a handwritten letter asking for some pictures. So I printed out a few and put them inside her Thanksgiving card. I’m actually holding Carolina’s 2015 World Vision progress report photo in my hand as a sweet surprise.

Quick Tip: When printing your own photos at home. Turn the paper so the glossy side faces up. Feed the stack of paper into the paper support.

Even though she’s not physically by my side, Carolina can still see herself with me.

Here’s some additional photos I’ve taken on the nature trail…

Happy 59th Birthday Mom

     I am so blessed to have my mother in my life. I often reflect on all the sacrifices she’s made. To earn more money my mother worked two jobs at a time to keep food on the table and pay bills. There were obstacles I witnessed my mother overcome. She survived cancer, endured a broken arm, quit smoking cigarettes, and went back to school to study nursing when she was in her early forties. I appreciate all the the love and encouragement she’s provided over the years. I love you Mom and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
