>Check out this giveaway.

>A copy of The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards from Sandra at Fresh Ink, ends Oct. 15th.


>Time passes.

Life happens.

Distance separates.

Children grow up.

Jobs come and go.

Love waxes and wanes.

Men don’t do what they’re supposed to do.

Hearts break.

Parents die.

Colleagues forget favors.

Careers end.


Sisters are there,no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.

A girl friend is never farther away than needing her can reach.

When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life will be on the valley’s rim, cheering you on,praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the valley’s end.

Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you…

Or come in and carry you out.

Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters, daughters-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, Mothers, Grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended family, all bless our life!

The world wouldn’t be the same without women, and neither would I. When we began this adventure called womanhood, we had no idea of the incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we know how much we would need each other. Every day, we need each other still.

Pass this on to all the women who help make your life meaningful.

I just did.

Short and very sweet:

There are more than twenty angels in this world.
Ten are peacefully sleeping on clouds.
Nine are playing.
And one is reading her email at this moment.

Send this message to ten of your friends including me.

If you get 5 replies, someone you love will surprise you.

Food for today:

Please let us be wise in what we’re saying, and who we’re saying it to, whether it be through email, phone, or in person. Oftentimes we are misunderstood, and more often what we are saying is shared with others.


>I hate having to wait until I get to work to eat. The thing is, I would have to get up at 4:00 am to be able to have breakfast at home. That is something that will never happen. So I am stuck just dealing with it. Real age says to lose weight you need to eat within an hour of rising. Maybe that is why my weight lose averages 0.4 a week and M’s is 2 pounds a week!

There is a raffle at GCT. Two cars, one is a gunmetal gray, Maserati Quattroporte and the other is a cherry red Maserati Gran Turismo. They are selling 400 tickets at $1,000 a ticket for the Quattroporte car. That means the car is $400,000. They are selling 300 tickets at $1,000 a ticket for the Gran Turismo, so it is only $300,000. Click this link to read the article in the New York Times. So someone is going to get a car worth at least $300,000 dollars for $1,000. It won’t be me, I am trying to sell the car I have! I remember another raffle they had, the Maserati was tangerine (really!) and the doors opened up. That was a very cool car.

I had a ‘only in New York’ thought when I was crossing the street coming into work from the 7 train. “Only in New York would you find a bunch of remotes scattered all over the street.”

My boss is still trying to get the address to my blog. He asked for an excerpt from it. I didn’t want to because I thought he meant send him a link to a post from the blog and then he would be able to find it, so he said no do a cut and paste. So I did the one from homecoming, making sure to take out any links to my blog in the document.
