Happy Easter

Happy Easter from Colorado as we are social distancing.

It was 72 degrees yesterday and it’s now 30. We received some snow overnight, enough to cover the pansies.

Let us all give thanks this year

As we all gather for Thanksgiving this year, despite what is going on we have a lot to be thankful for. 

There is a lot of discourse in the United States after a long and heated election. It is continuing now after the surprise outcome that many did not see coming.

But we need to be thankful, thankful we live in a country that allows for the discussion and disagreement to take place. There are many countries in the world that do not allow for this to happen.

We need to be thankful that in two months we will have a peaceful transition of the presidency. There have been many transitions of leaders around the world that have not been peaceful.

While we are celebrating we must not forget the history we have to learn from. For this we are thankful because we can learn from it and not make those same mistakes again. This world is closer and more diverse than ever, we need to be sure that people from all backgrounds are safe and protected. 

Finally, we should be thankful for our family and friends. Without them, specifically for me, I wouldn’t be who I am today. I hope that is the same for you too.

If it is not, there are places where you can go to get that love and support. I hope you can find that.

There is a lot to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day in 2016. Let us all pause and think about it and try to combat all th negativity that surrounds us this season. 

Happy New Year

I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope everyone had a great 2013 and has an even better 2014. I am looking forward to 2014.

Be safe everyone and have a good year.

Merry Christmas

I hope everyone enjoys and has a wonderful Christmas. It will be wonderful one in Denver since we are having a white Christmas. Merry Christmas!

Posts Limited Next Two Weeks

Because of the holidays, posts will be limited the next couple of weeks.
I am going to be taking some time off and enjoying family and friends.  I won’t have too much time to put together posts for this blog.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a good New Year!

Happy Halloween

Well it is another Halloween in Denver and it is raining and snowing around town.  Just a typical Halloween around here.
It is going to be nice and chilly around here tonight when we take the kids around the neighborhood.

Stay safe.
