Enough is Enough

I am tired of hearing so much garbage being spewed around. Enough is enough! Below are my opinions and you may feel differently, and that is your choice. I just need to get this out of my system.

Color Doesn't Matter!

I am a human being. I was born on Earth, in a state called New Jersey. My religion is love. My politics are peace. Period. I don't care what color your skin is, but I have had the race card thrown at me quite a few times in my life. I had one girl work for me and yes, her skin was black. No problem there. She was a single Mom with 2 kids. I actually tried to work with her. Now, due to circumstances beyond her control, she was in an automobile accident. She was out of work for a couple of weeks and I had a choice to make. I could either hire someone else or, put in the extra hours to do her job so that she had a job to come back to. I opted to do her job for her. Now, she normally worked about 50-60 hours a week so I knew I was going to have my hands full with a l…

How I Win the Giveaways

Image
Changes are afoot! I have been working on trying to get my head in the game and get myself organized. Step by step, day by day, I am gradually getting there. Each day I get closer to what I want to be sharing with you and trying to help YOU stop the pain!

I found the blogger giveaways years ago. I don't always follow them. There are times that I just take a break from them. This is for my fun. I also enjoy reading so I will enter quite a few giveaways that offer book prizes. I win often enough that it is worth my time and instead of sharing the giveaways that I am entering on a separate blog post each day, I will share WHAT I am doing so that you, too, can join the winners' circle with me! (I will keep my list updated still because I do use it all the time myself!)

I won't post every day about the giveaways, but I will be posting in a variety of areas regularly.

Good morning! For many, as Irma comes barreling toward Florida, my prayers are with all of you in Irma's path. While many have evacuated, I must say that while I am worried about my oldest daughter, I am proud of her also. As a nurse, she will be staying down in Florida through the hurricane. I am going to share her words about WHY she is staying. Please, hold her up in your prayers, along with the many others that are staying with the sole purpose of helping others.

"For everyone that felt the need to message me after my post about someone watching my dogs in NJ while I'm in Florida dealing with this hurricane about how selfish it is to stay here, and how ridiculous it was, etc ..I didn't just decide to ride this out for some "fun." I'm a nurse. I didn't come into this profession to wear "pajamas" to work every day although I do love scrubs, I didn't get into this profession to marry a doctor, or to make crazy money. I came into this t…

Good morning! As you may have noticed, I have been focusing more on book giveaways. The prizes vary. Sometimes it's a gift card, sometimes it's a swag prize, sometimes it's a book. It is usually a variety. I figure the money will help and if the prize isn't a gift card or PayPal, I still love to read, so it's a win-win for me! I dropped many sites from the blog because I only have so many hours a day to spend on the giveaways. This is a good ratio for me. I may change them up or add a few down the road, but I plan on keeping my listing small and easily manageable.

Here is today's listing of giveaways that I have rounded up. First up are the ones that end tonight, followed by upcoming giveaways. Best of luck to you!

Good morning! First, I want to apologize. I know I really took a lot of time off from the blog, but I needed the summer to get things a little better in my head. Yes, I will continue with the blog, but the giveaways will be a much smaller section. I may add some sites along the way, but I have a lot that I want to do and while I enjoy giveaways, they are just a small section part of all I want to accomplish.

I plan on organizing the Suicide Awareness section some. That will take quite a bit of time because that is a very painful subject for me. I shared the loss of my daughter and losing a child is probably the most painful thing I have ever gone through. While I do that, I want to also start writing some other posts - some posts offering Hope, Strength, and Compassion. Most of you may not get why I chose those 3 sections to focus on. My daughter's name is Heather Suzanne Crespo, so I chose one characteristic from each of her initials. I'm still not sure what I am going to ca…

Just a Heads Up

I just really need a break now. My mind is still hurting and since summer is my favorite season, I am going to try to enjoy it. I will be back with more in the Fall! Enjoy your summer! See you soon! Again, feel free to message me if you need anything!

Getting things a little organized and making sure I still have some time to relax. I am trying to take weekends off and see how that goes.
