Over the past few days I've had Martha & The Vandellas song, "Heatwave," stuck in my head. Maybe it's because the temperature has hit 100 degrees for 16 days in a row in H-Town. Today's official temp reached 102. Whew!

In honor of the weather let's all enjoy this Motown favorite!

Step Up - Be A Friend - Don't let others be bullied

I'm sure many of you have seen this on Facebook. It's worth the repost. Thanks for sharing Leesa!

Special request to all you kids returning to school in the next few days: If you see someone who is struggling to make friends or being bullied because he/she doesn't have many friends or because they are shy or not as pretty or not dressed in the most "in" clothes -- PLEASE step up. Say hi or at least smile at them in the hallway. Your kindness might just make a BIG difference in someone's life!!!!!!!!!!!

First Time!

Well you know what they say….There’s a first time for everything! You’re my first! My first blog! :)

I can’t believe I’m joining the blog world. Here I go…full sprint…two feet in the pool. Hope you will enjoy my posts and share your stories too. So without further fluff I will begin my blog with my favorite quote by William James, “We don’t laugh because we’re happy—we’re happy because we laugh.”

What’s your favorite quote?
