Mother’s 

My beautiful mother Barbara Hicock Agnew.

Mother’s 

There are all different names for mothers,  Mom, Mamma, Mother, Ma, Mum.  What makes a mom so special?  Is it the fact that she bring life into this world,  then does her very best to guide, coach, educate,  love and show forgiveness to her children? 

Let’s not forget the other women whom are raising children, step mothers. Step Mothers are just as important as mothers.   They love their step children just as if they had carried them for nine months and given birth.

Happy New Year 2017

Another year behind us and a new one lies infront of us.  I love new beginnings.  A new year brings us just that.

A chance to wipe the slate clean, pick ourselves up, moving forward into a bright new future.

I’m going to breakdown the meaning of all three words.

Happy

According to Google happy is a feeling or showing pleasure or contentment. 

How does one show a feeling?  A smile, a post with happy faces, babies, puppies, kittens a favorite teams win.  

When someone says; ” I just want you to be happy” what are they really saying?   Can we be happy without smiling, posting positve and uplifting sayings on social media?

I’ve learned to be content with my life just the way it is.  I may not have big fancy houses, top of the make in motor vehicles and all the material things that people associate with “happiness”.  What I do have is a loving husband, children, grandchildren, family and friends.  That makes me rich in happiness.

New

New is defined by Google dictonary as not exsiting before; made; introduced, or discovered recently or now for the first time.

Every day brings a new beginning. It is up to us to make it count.

Year

Merriam Webster defines year as

a :  the period of about 3651/4 solar days required for one revolution of the earth around the sunb :  the time required for the apparent sun to return to an arbitrary fixed or moving reference point in the skyc :  the time in which a planet completes a revolution about the sun <two Mercury years>

The whole of life is but a moment of time. It is our duty, therefore to use it, not to misuse it. -Plutarch


How will you use this year to your advantage? 

I wish you all a healthy, positive, prosperious 2017!

As always…..

What Do You Mean It’s Thanksgiving

Every year in the United States of America we have this little holiday called Thanksgiving.  

It’s supposed to be a time of reflection, gathering together with family and friends to be grateful for what one has.

This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the  Charlie Brown Thanksgiving cartoon.  Watch Charlie Browns Thanksgiving here.
I always loved Charlie Brown and his friends as they try to have a traditional thanksgiving dinner . 

Snoopy does all the cooking.  While Woodstock attempts to assist with the preparations . 

Charlie Brown of course is stuck in his usuall rut of aggravation, undecissiveness that goes along within his little part of life.

His best friend Linus always maintains a positive attitude no matter what is going on.  I loved this cartoon growing up because it shows us that holidays don’t have to be in the normal ways.

Every nationality can come together with one mind.  The mind of thankfulness .  

 What does the word thankful mean?  According to Dictionary.com it is a 

feeling or expressing gratitude;

appreciative.

Can Charlie Brown find the things to be grateful for?  I’m not going to spoil it for you just in case you’ve never seen this episode.

Really there are people out there in this great big world that have never seen or heard of Charlie Brown . 

The one thing I will tell you is see that kid at the head of the table? That is Linus.  The positive influence in Charlie’s life.  Always had the one thing to say that make a person think . 

Thankfull

Things I’m thankful for are 

1. YOU – without anyone reading my articles my words would just sit here taking up space never to be seen or shared.

2. God – Okay I know what your thinking .   Why, What. Without my belief in God I don’t know where I’d be today . 

3.  My Husband and Family – I love my family .  They make this journey through life exciting.

4. Friends – We all have friends.  I have a few special ones that help to keep me somewhat level.

Lastly

Charlie Brown of course ! 

May you have a special Thanksgiving with your loved ones.

Please leave a comment on two things your thankful for.
