Swagbucks, the online rewards site where you earn cash and free gift cards for the everyday things you do online, has added Disneyland eTickets to their lineup of rewards!

Looking Up To True American Heroes #heroes

My definition of a hero isn't a person who wears shoulder pads, a jock strap or cleats.  My heroes wear brass buttons, fatigues and the American flag on their shoulder.
My heroes don't race around a track, they race around the world to defend and aid those in need.
They don't throw fast pitches, touch down passes, or free throws.  They don't win academy awards, Grammy awards or Tony Awards.
My heroes don't need recognition for their performances.  They do it because they love their country.  They do it for the people they love and for people they will never meet.  They aren't making millions of dollars, although they should.  They make humble salaries to give their families basic needs and wants.



This is my brother.


He dedicated his entire adult life, 30 years. defending our country and the flag that represents it.



This is my husband's cousin 

He made the ultimate sacrifice when his plane was shot down during World War II.
These are my heroes.  These are t…

Never Cry Over Anything That Can't Cry Over You- A Message of Hope #charity #hope #love #hurricane

(photo source: pixabay)

Never cry over anything that can't cry over you.  I have heard that expression my entire life.  My mother often said it to us as a reminder that family is the most important thing we have.  I have said this phrase to my son on many occasions, and I hope one day he says it to his children.

Never cry over anything that can't cry over you.  With all of the devastation and loss over the past few months from the hurricanes that have been happening, those words have never been so true.   I pray everyday for the people who have lost so much and are suffering.  I am praying that they find solace in the fact that they have each other.  Material things can be replaced.   I remember when Super storm Sandy and Hurricane Irene hit my area a few years ago.  We were without power, gas and other amenities.  The storm damage was bad in some areas from the floods and winds, but nothing like what I am seeing in the past few weeks in Texas and Florida and the islands.  My h…

Love You Always by Eileen Spinelli #sponsored #gotitfree #childrensbooks @worthypub

Disclosure:  I received this book to review for my honest opinion.


Love You Always is a beautifully illustrated book by best selling author Eileen Spinelli. This book speaks of unconditional family love.  It teaches our children that no matter what, their family will always be there to love them.  I found it to be a positive, uplifting book for children, especially in today's world, where children can sometimes feel insecure.


DESCRIPTIONA child is a treasured leaf on a family tree, surrounded by love from mom, dad, doting grandparents, aunts and uncles, and family friends too. This sweet, reassuring picture book from Eileen Spinelli acknowledges the whole “tree”—the many who are invested in a child’s life—with expressions of unconditional love from each. Heartwarming verse and charming artwork will make this book a must-buy for baby showers, birthdays, and other occasions.
