Thanksgiving is one of the holidays that we share with family and friends.This is one of the days that we make time to be with our loved ones and friends. We prepare our favorite foods and enjoy each other.
Most of us remember the kitchen giving off aromas that made you stay awake almost all night, hoping that daylight would come so you could savor all the goodies.The cakes, pies and that turkey with the stuffing that was better than the last time.
Those days are returning for most of us as we scurry around making grocery lists and trying not to forget anything. We will not forget those of us that are not able to enjoy Thanksgiving like before. Remembering others is what this day is all about. Donating a turkey is a  great idea or even volunteering your help at a kitchen that will be serving Thanksgiving meals to those in need. Dropping by an elderly neighbor with  a
home cooked meal is also a way we can share this day.
 Let's really make this a Happy Thanksgiving for all.

To be or not to be a Bully. Bullies are created not born. A newborn infant is not automatically a bully, so where is it coming from. Turn on the TV, listen to the message that is being sent out by some. Threats that are so causally said with no regard for one's feelings. Politicians are guilty of this as we have just seen and heard during this last election. Some of the Celebrities have demonstrated some vile behavior. Children and young adults are also included.

It's way past due to start looking deeper into this problem. We as as a people have gone way off track as to what is acceptable and what is not. We have even more school age children reenacting this terrible behavior.

Our children deserve better and it is time to stand up and say NO MORE! It takes a village to raise our children. Has the village gone on vacation or what? Do you really know how your child is digesting all of this negativity and Bulling attitudes. Some of them wait until the parent is out of sight and demonstrate the same behavior. You as a parent might say never, not my child, but as the old saying goes, never say never.
There used to be a time when behavioral standards were set very high, now the bar is below what is needed to have a healthy and stable family.It is sad to think that in the long run that the repetitive bulling and negative behavior will become the norm in our society.
