There is a Reason To Be Thankful!

By my cousin Jessica Jones


Holiday seasons are upon us. This time of the year can bring joy or sorrow to some. A question that has been asked is there a reason to be thankful? Statements overheard are, I am unemployed, what is there to be thankful for, I lost my home, or death has taken my love ones.

In my home  special prayers of thanks will be said on the fourth Thursday in the month of November over a delicious meal. November 28th was the birthday of my father. He past in 2006 on my mother birthday, June 14. She past on September 23rd my husband birthday, 2005. Also, November 15, 2004, that year my oldest brother had his going home on my late uncle birthday and two days before mines. November 28th was the anniversary date on my deceased maternal grandparents. Yet I am thankful that these people had touch my life. They have given our family loving memories. At my family table I will only have one son to share these joy because he lost his only murdered 16 years old brother. I truly thankful for my son. He has grownup to be a loving adult, caring father, and awesome grandfather.

Years back my home of twelve years was foreclosed and my husband became unemployed.  I am thankful that God had blessed me with a home that is larger in square footage than the home I lost, while allowing me to retire and reap the fruits of my labors.

At the age of thirty-eight,  an IV treatment was diagnosis and must be taken for life. I have survived to see five generations in our family thanks to our Lord. Yes on some these occasions, my faith was tested and maintained.

In also in our homes Thanksgiving meals will be served consisting of turkey and the fixings, football games are going to entertain us, pleasant memories are going to be shared with family and friends. Unfortunately, there is a need to feed hungry men, women, and children this Thanksgiving season. So my partner, Audrey and I, Sandra, decided that we have been blessed that we shall donate 5% of our profits from sales to the City Mission of Las Vegas.


Remember to in order to walk you needed to take that first step. This is the first step to do something for someone who at this time is trying to crawl. Go to LaChic Gifts and Craft and for every $35 dollars spend 5% will help someone in need until Thanksgiving.

MOTHER'S DAY WISH, A PERFECT FAMILY


A perfect family is what we all wish for. We see people that have families that are much different than ours. As experience their unique culture, we wish we had a family like them. But really, having a perfect family isn’t possible. We all will have problems and accomplishments that make us unique from every other family in the whole wide world. So, think hard about how different your family is. Appreciate that you have a family and never alone because they help us through tough times. It is never foolish to wish for a perfect family but is foolish to abandon your special family.

Grandma's Recipe for a Loving Family
4 cups of love
2 cups of loyalty
3 cups of forgiveness
1 cup of friendship
5 tablespoons of hope
2 tablespoons of tenderness
4 quarts of faith
1 barrel of laughter

Take love and loyalty, mix it thoroughly with faith.
Blend it with tenderness, kindness and understanding.
Add friendship and hope.
Sprinkle abundantly with laughter.
Bake it in sunshine.
Serve daily with generous helpings.
Serves one entire home forever.
-Anonymous

SCRAPBOOK POEM

ODE TO MY WIFE By Valerie Consolo


She learned to crop on Monday
Her shapes were going fine.
She forgot to thaw our dinner
So we went out to dine . . .

She added die-cuts on Tuesday
She says they really are a must
They actually were quite lovely,
But she forgot to dust . . .

On Wednesday it was stickers,
She says the designs are fun,
What highlights! What shadows!
But the laundry wasn't done.


Her journaling was on Thursday
With Pigma pens, including red,
I guess she really was engrossed,
She never made the bed.

It was acid-free paper on Friday
In colors that she adores.
It never bothered her at all
The crumbs on the floor!

I found a maid on Saturday,
My week is now complete
My wife can crop the hours away
The house will still be neat!

Well, it's already Sunday,
But don't call me a great pop . . .
I cursed! I raved!! I Ranted!
The maid has learned to crop!!!


THIS IS JUST TO CUTE IT MADE MY DAY
