Saturday Shares – I Raised My Voice Against Hatred

I Raised My Voice Against Hatred.  It Was Easier Than I Thought It Would Be and It Felt Good. – By Carmelene Melanie Siani

“They have the best Greek feta cheese you can get anywhere,” my husband said, pointing to the Middle Eastern grocery store around the corner from our house where he and his late wife used to shop all the time.

“It comes from France.”

Hm. Greek feta cheese from France.  How enticing,  “I’ll check it out,” I told him.

Thus began, three years ago, my almost daily trips to that wonderful little corner of the world, the Middle Eastern market.

Dear President Obama. May I Offer A Critique?

 

NOTE:  I try to keep politics out of my posts. However, after observing many issues, I felt compelled to put my thoughts in a letter to our great President. I have always supported him and continue to do so.  He has had struggles as our POTUS and overall he has done many great things–there are just a few critiques that I have. Read on and you may agree or disagree but I welcome your thoughts because I truly desire a country united of her people!  Thanks and I hope to have given you food for thought! XOXOXOXO!

Dear President Obama,

I am writing this letter to you to give you my honest opinion on the last eight years that you have been the leader of our United States of America.  You will be delighted at some of what I have to say and you may not be delighted at other things I have to say, but what I have to say will give you food for thought.

Since I voted for you twice, I feel that as a citizen of our country, I’m validated in my opinion.

Three Husbands

Mom is sitting at her table across from Donald, and they’re smiling at each other. When she sees me, she beams.

“Hi Donald,” I say, as I lean over to kiss my mom.

“Is that his name?” she asks. “I’m so glad you told me!” She has an impish grin on her face.

They have their meals together every day, and they spend a lot of time sitting across from each other at their table between meals. I wonder if they ever get up.

“Let’s go for a walk, Mom,” I say. She needs the exercise.

“Okay,” she says, but she seems a little reluctant.

My Son Didn’t Start Today

My son is 9.  His name is Nate.  He LOVES sports.

In football this year, he led the team in touchdowns . . . . and tackles.  In baseball, he was the starting short stop, and hit the ball further than anyone in the whole league.   In soccer, nobody on his team scored more goals last Spring.  He’s an athletic kid.

Weekend Coffee Share: Waiting for Peace during Advent Season

If we were having coffee, I would ask you to sit with me for a moment and chat about our difficulties in waiting. How do you like your coffee or tea?

Do you like to wait? I don’t. To me it is time wasted. I usually multi-task while waiting, by reading, doodling, deleting stuff from my phone…you know. I am very impatient. Definitely a character flaw.

Here in America

One week ago at this hour I was watching the details unfold – the terrorist massacres in Paris put France, front and center, on the world’s stage – again.  Since last Friday, November 13, our country has become divided – again.  My social media news feeds have exploded with diametrically opposing views on how we should approach the Syrian refugees.  My friends and my favorite pop culture sites have delivered everything from carefully constructed logic, to unbridled emotion on the topic. Truth be told, many of my favorite pop culture sites are no longer my favorites.  As for my friends, I certainly don’t mean to offend you here, so if we stand on opposite sides, I still appreciate your thoughts.

Dark Chocolate Brownie Pecan Pie

Forget the traditional pecan pie! Dark chocolate chips, dark chocolate brownie batter and dark chocolate sauce combine to form the base of this absolutely amazing Dark Chocolate Brownie Pecan Pie. It’s then topped with the traditional pecan pie filling and baked to pie perfection before being drizzled with even more dark chocolate sauce and topped with whipped topping and chocolate shavings!
