Giving Tuesday November 27

Each year we all enjoy many holiday traditions with family and friends that bring big bright smiles to those we love.   Here in US  the Friday after Thanksgiving  has become a HUGE shopping date known as Black Friday.  The development of  the  cyber world has brought the addition of Cyber Monday ….. a big Internet shopping date.  We all now have the opportunity to add  a great  tradition to this string – Giving Tuesday!!
This coming Tuesday  November 27, 2012  many charities, families, businesses and individuals are coming together to transform the way people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.  What a wonderful new tradition to add to the holiday giving season!!!

There are many ways to join this great giving campaign.  Visit the Giving Tuesday website and find resources, ideas and most importantly great ways to get involved.

Together we can make a difference and create a tradition of generosity!

Mama’s Words !!

April 16, 2012

Today I lift my blog in a toast to all the great mothers of the world!!  It is a hard job but someone has to work on our collective future!!  There are many great women across the globe who have taught, sacrificed and generously given to the children in their lives.  Many are the  parent of the child they nurture but we cannot forget those who mother in the schools, neighborhoods and churches. ….giving selflessly of themselves  when called upon.   

Represents nurturing & discipline

Nurturing and discipline

This life in the mommy “hood” is not an easy existence.  It is filled with many amazing moments of course more good than bad ( thank  heavens)  And because I now hear my own mother’s words flowing  thru my lips each day I decided to create the wordle below!  It is a short sweet snippet of what I think many mothers voice on many days as they work to build a better future for us all!!

Mama Used to Say

 Let no one ever come to you without

leaving better………

……..and happier.

— quote Mother Teresa
