Happy Birthday Husband!

 

I love my husband.  This pretty W is in honor of him.  His name is Walter.  I call him Walder.

Walter is the greatest, like Muhammad Ali.

I baked him a Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting for his birthday.

We are going to Red Lobster later.  That’s his favorite restaurant.

A good day for a good man.  I thank God for him. He was meant to be my husband.  And, his love is better than ice cream.  Better than anything I’ve ever tried.  :)

Why I’m A Steelers Fan When I Don’t Really Like Football

 

For me, football is not just about the sport. It’s about family, tradition, food, team spirit and community.

One reason I am a Steelers’ fan is because of my Dad.  My Dad was a Cowboys fan but he was from Wheeling, WV which is about 50 miles from Pittsburgh.  Most of his family in Wheeling are Steelers Fans.  My brother, a die-hard Cowboys fan does not understand this logic.  But any fan knows that fan is short for fanatic and fanatics don’t have to be rational.

Go Steelers!  :)

An irrational sense of hopefulness

 

Stress and uncertainty give us an opportunity to become something more than we expect, if we are open to it.  Hope can keep us sane and happy.  I aim to be guilty of an irrational sense of hopefulness!

 

Can I have some more chocolate?

 

When my son was in first or second grade, we used to stop at a coffee shop near his school for breakfast.  He would often get a chocolate croissant.

One morning while he was eating, he shared that he wished that the layer of chocolate went all the way to the edges.  He didn’t like the part that was just bread.  Luckily I did and he would give me the crusts and I’d happily eat them, scavenger that I am.

I suggested to my son that he could tell the coffee shop folks about his comment.  He told them and do you know that they started making them with more chocolate?

The moral of the story?  Speak up!  And, more chocolate is always better!
