Good Times


It's important to make time to do "girl things."

Calories don't count when you are
having lunch with your girlfriends.

Laughter makes the world a happier place.

Good times are even better when they're shared.

March is Literacy Month

Well, my meager group of followers, I'm back. February has been quite the month of transition for me. How appropriate that it should happen as Winter will be tranforming into Spring.

I have since moved, joined the local Rotary Club, started a fresh journey and given up many many material possessions, as well as, ended a very significant relationship.

With all that being said, I am trying to focus more on doing for the community and giving back. I do it with my job everyday, but I want to do it after work too. We all should. It is good for everyone.

I am stealing some ideas from the latest newletter from Rotary on ideas on how we can all try to contribute to Literacy this month. If you can't do any of the following or they don't seem appealing to you, at least read to someone or encourage someone to read. Or just buy a book for someone. Reading is power, freedom and independence. And to all you ladies, we should be thankful to our foremothers for risking much and sometimes everything so that we would have the right to read and writer and be educated.
