Happy Father’s Day Dad

This Sunday is Father’s Day.  I feel the same about Father’s Day as I do Mother’s Day.  Everyday should be Father’s Day and Mother’s Day.  We shouldn’t wait until one day in the year to tell our parents how much they mean to us.  This sweet video shows some of the great things that Dad does for us.  It shows the diffferent characteristics of a great Dad.  Many memories we have of the special things that all the Dads do for their families.  Thank you to all those Dads out there who always care for their families.  AND for all those men out there who may not be a biological father but are always there as father figure to those who need one.  Happy Father’s Day to all you “Dads” out there.  You are so special in the lives of the children, more than you know.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

How Important You Are- A Mom’s Story

Moms are very busy.  Sometimes they forget just how much they do for everyone. This mom is a businesswoman and a full time mom. In this video she learns just what she means to the family.  This was a commercial but yet a great story that every mom could put herself in.  Kraft Peanut Butter approached this family to use as an example for almost every family.  The kids made drawings and an author helped them write a book.  Kraft asked Deborah to be there for a book reading.  She was reading the book to an audience.  All of a sudden she turns a page and sees that the story is about her.  I dare you not to find yourself this in this story in one way or another.  Thank you Kraft for reminding us that we all have a place in the story and what we do in life tells the story we want to tell.  Be present in your story no matter how hard or how wonderful.  A new chapter is ready to be written and what you do today will form that chapter.  Take the time to enjoy the story and share that story with everyone.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

How important you are- a mom's story

What makes you happy?

Somedays we just need a fun story.  A story that just makes you smile.  If you like dogs and cats you can’t help but love this video.  Not much to say about it.  You just have to watch the joy in these dogs and cats and the fun time they are having at the beach.  This may help those of you who are facing a cold long winter too.  Take a moment and just sit and enjoy the fun they are having.

Pharrell Williams Surprises a Big Fan

I am a big fan of the Pharrell Willams’ song, “Happy”.  I’m sure that most of you know it.  If you don’t know it, you should go find it and listen to it.  It is a GREAT song with a super beat and and even better message.  If I had a “theme” song, this song may just be it.  Well, since it is such a favorite song, I decided to find a way to do an ALGN post that somehow touched on the song or on Pharrell Williams.  Well, thanks to MasterCard, I came across a great little post that does both.  As part of MasterCard’s “Priceless Surprises” campaign, Pharrell was asked by MasterCard if he was willing to join them in surprising a very big “Pharrell Williams Fan”.  Her name is Queen.  Queen runs a daycare where she gets the kids to dance and sing, etc.  She is a huge Pharrell fan and LOVES his songs…especially the song “Happy”.  Well, she is performing that song with her kids when Pharrell walks into her classroom.  She is excited and almost in tears to see him.  It is neat to see Pharrell interact with her and with her little kids.  You can see how down to earth he is.  And then, Pharrell even pays tribute to Queen.  It is a neat little segment and I hope it makes you just like Pharrell’s song…..HAPPY!!!
