Today I give thanks for my good fortune.
There is so much to be thankful for when you consider that millions of people around the world go to bed hungry every night. The situation is dire in Yemen where a child under five dies of hunger every 10 minutes.
As the World Food Bank USA, reports, “As the civil war in Yemen rages on, the country is teetering on the brink of famine. 17 million people don’t know where their next meal is coming from. And the cholera epidemic is making the situation even more dire for the 2.2 million severely malnourished children.”

Thanks to my loyal followers, my fellow bloggers, my family, and my friends for your continued support.

I believe that gratitude is a gift we should express everyday not only because it’s the right thing to do, but for our own happiness and well-being. Read More→
They’re fierce opponents on opposite sides of the aisle. But two Congressmen put politics aside and did their own version of Carpool Karaoke by sharing a 1,600 mile drive from Texas to Washington, DC to arrive in time for an important vote.
Reps. Beto O’Rourke (D) and Will Hurd (R) live-streamed their trip and people tuning in loved it. Can’t their budding bromance become a model for other opposing members of Congress? Can’t it influence how we collaborate with people we work with, doing what’s right for our company even if we personally don’t agree? Can’t we discuss our points of view with people without the conversation dissolving into a screaming match? Read More→
