Happy Thanksgiving!

Standard

Most of us are sitting around a table, sharing a festive meal with family and friends, enjoying each others company.

Today, I am welcoming a friend into my home and into my family. For this, I am thankful. Thankful for being able to do this for a woman whom I consider a sister and who has been there for me many a time. Thankful that, while I can help her, she is willing to help me as well. Thankful that she understands my illness and treats me the same as she always has – with love and respect.

 

Today, I give thanks for all of the understanding, love and support I receive from my family. The road I travel would be a lot more difficult without it.

Today, I give thanks to the people with ME/CFS, who are using the little bit of energy they have, and their supporters, to advocate for this invisible illness. Together we are fighting an uphill battle – one that has been made necessary by neglect and abuse from the medical community. I am thankful that I have enough energy to join the fight.

In fact, everyday I am thankful for all of the above and more.

Thank you for reading this blog!

Wait for it…. Wait for it…..

My birthday was last month and a special gift from my daughter had been ordered. Well, it finally arrived in the mail.

Drumroll please……….  Two tickets for the Alton Brown Traveling Tour! Definitely worth the wait! 😀

For those of you who do not know Alton Brown (and also for those who do), I give you the following video (with the addition of another fav of mine, Craig Ferguson!)

 

 

Policeman Buys Food and Drink for the Needy

Standard

So nice to hear good news about a cop with a heart! It is always good to serve the community in a positive way – can be useful as a crime deterrent by establishing trust and good will.

Lovely photo captures a cop’s good deed.

Tamas Nadas policeman

A recent power outage at Albuquerque’s Noon Day Center shelter meant no food or drink for the needy waiting outside – until Officer Tamas Nadas stepped in.

Seeing that the patrons would go hungry, he went to McDonald’s buying food and drink for 20 people. Clearly taken aback by the fuss over his kind deed, Nadas explains it felt like the “natural” thing to do to help out.

Regardless of whether he’s in uniform, he adds, “it’s human to human.”
