Icy Weather and Cold Keyboards

Where I live, it’s cold. Even my keyboard feels chilly. Winter ice storms shut the whole city down followed by excessive rain which flooded rivers and streets and homes. Every year I forget how humidity makes forty degrees feel like -30.

We Texans know how to sweat. Not slip, slide, and shiver. Enough already.

If you’re shivering like me, don’t let the shivers keep you from your keyboard. Bundle up, grab a mug of hot chocolate, and let the words blaze.

Pearl Harbor Remembrance

By |2022-12-06T10:10:17-06:00December 7th, 2022|Holidays, Wednesday Words of Wisdom|0 Comments

Today is the 81st Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor Attack, the day known as a Day of Infamy.

Long before I was born (and probably before most of you were born) on this day in 1941, Japanese fighter planes attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, Hawaii.

The day after the surprise attack Congress approved President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s request to declare war on Japan with only one dissenting vote.

Then three days later, Germany and Italy also declared war on the United States. Congress reciprocated. America had finally entered the fray known as World War II.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt said, “This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.” Our national history (and many of our personal histories) changed that day forever. Fathers, husbands, boyfriends, sons, and daughters went off to fight the war. Brave soldiers who answered the call.

My father did.

My uncle did.

So did my father’s sister.

Let’s take a minute this Pearl Harbor Day to remember those men who Tom Brokaw duped the Greatest Generation.

Men who willingly gave their all to provide protection and security to our nation and the world.

Finding the Right Words

I follow Holly Gerth’s blog because she always has fantastic, faith-based meme quotes and advice that uplifts and encourages. Her recent post contained this graphic.

These days with so many dealing with COVID and vaccination reactions, winter storms, and such, I often don’t know what to say when people share. Thanks to Holly, whatever the current situation, one of these phrases will work.

After so many days in quarantine, we probably all need to follow Rita Moreno’s advice. Find something and be happy. Only, instead of coffee, make mine a cuppa tea.

Choosing Hope – Reeve

About the graphic

I found this Pixabay photo on PexelsIt was a perfect match for the Christopher Reeve quote I love.

About the quote

Christopher Reeve was the star of the 1978 version of the Superman and subsequent sequels. But he wanted to do more substantive work, which he did as well as direct and write. In 1995 he suffered a spinal injury in an equestrian competition and he and his wife became major advocates for spinal cord injury victims.

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, now run by their children, is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information, and advocacy.

Read more about this amazing real life Superman here. Once you know more  about him, you’ll see he never gave up choosing instead to hope.

Hope leads to possibilities. We should always choose hope.
