November is almost upon us. (Can you believe it?)
Autumn is my favorite time of year. The colors, the smells, warm sweaters and especially Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving. It's a great time of year dedicated to simply just giving thanks for the many gifts God has blessed us with. One of my biggest blessings is my family.

I decided that starting in November, I'm going to do a little "Thanksgiving" cameo on each of my family members. Stay tuned for those upcoming posts.


In other news:

It's cold!! I'm bundling up in scarf, coat and gloves in efforts to stay warm. I've also had to start scraping my car in the morning.
My morning ritual is going to have to start a little earlier so I can have time to warm up and scrape the car before work. I guess this means no more hitting the snooze button "one more time".

A New Friend

I have a new friend and little buddy at work.
He makes me smile.
He reminds me that it's good to be young at heart.
He also reminds me of how many movie lines I know.
He pals around with two of my favorite characters.
He's from Mattel; (well not really from Mattel, he's actually from a smaller comany that was purchased in a leverage buyout.)
And he makes my co-workers think I need the help of a professional.



Don't you wish you had one too?

The Smile

What is it about a Smile?

If you're having a good day, a bad day, just one of those days, a smile can make all th difference.

It's just a hello; that warmth from a caring friend; maybe a good joke; that one just because they caught your eye.

It's meaning can hold so much. It shows they care. It's a reminder that "hey, I'm here for you." It's because they're friendly.

And it makes you feel special; it shows that you matter.
And it makes me smile too.
