It's All Good...

This week has been very challenging...My job has now decided it wants to change the culture of the company.  With that being said, next week I will be attending a ten week course called Face the Challenge. I do not know how I am going to manage...doing both Kaplan and FTC.  I will definitely be doing a lot of praying; that's the only way, giving it to God!!

In November I will be turning 50...half a century!! To celebrate this milestone and before the season change, I've decided to do a tandem ski dive in September.  Thrilled and excited, this weekend I told a  few friends and family members of my plans and asked them to jump with me.  So far, my husband and niece are on board.  I am sooo looking to forward to this calling, as I've been told there's no feeling like it...

Act of Kindness

The other day I was driving north on the New Jersey parkway.  Because I did not have exact change,  I had to go through the cash booth.  The line was long and slow.  When I finally got to the window, the toll collector motioned for me to go through.  Not understanding, I handed her a five dollar bill.  She said, "the card before you paid your toll".  I was wowed...this has never happened to me before!!  I decided to pass along the act of kindness, I paid for the next two cars. 

Later I wondered how often does this happen?  I guess it doesn't really matter, as long as I pay it forward...

Surprise Surprise

My husband and I were recently invited to attend a surprise birthday party. Here's the catch...There's a charge of $50.00 per person with a cash bar.  I've never heard of such a thing!!  Since when guest pay to attend a surprise party?  I know times are hard, but these days it's seems it's easier to pass the buck...It this a new trend? Well I guess the surprise is on us!
