LOVE IS ALL AROUND YOU! But I have not been all around you, looks like for about 8 months.  With volunteering for EnrichLA and starting a new job in August I have been on overload.  Never forget the love though! And feel free to contact me any time with suggestions on what to share, what brightens your day, or what reminds you to love <3

Fixing struggling schools - Other Views - MiamiHerald.com

Quote from a great article


U.S SECRETARY OF EDUCATION

"The burdens of poverty are real, and overcoming those burdens takes hard work and resources. But poverty is not destiny. Hundreds of schools in high-poverty communities are closing achievement gaps. America can no longer afford a collective shrug when disadvantaged students are trapped in inferior schools and cheated of a quality education for years on end."

Frank Lloyd Wright

God is the great mysterious motivator of what we call nature, and it has often been said by philosophers, that nature is the will of God. And I prefer to say that nature is the only body of God that we shall ever see.

I found some fabulous old photos online, from various sources such as The Cornell University Library, Smithsonian, The George Eastman House, Powerhouse Museum and others.  I find them so inspiring that I feel it is fitting to post them here.
I will upload them throughout the week.  For now these are two of my favorites.

To be enthusiastic every day and to keep your dreams alive in spite of problems whatever you have. The ability to be able to work hard for your dreams to come true, to become a reality."

This is just....amazing


The photograph attached was taken by the crew on board the Columbia during its last mission, on a cloudless day. The picture is of Europe and Africa when the sun is setting. Half of the picture is in night. The bright dots you see are the cities’ lights. Note that the lights are already on in Holland, Paris, and Barcelona and that’s it’s still daylight in Dublin, London, Lisbon and Madrid .

From Agatha Christie (An Autobiography)

“It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous 
that you realize just how much you love them.”

17 January 2011

"May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us."

"Many of life's failures are people who

Cute article and idea <3



Food Drive!

Thank you to everyone that contributed to our food drive.  It was a bit last minute, but even so we ended up collecting 100lbs of food and nearly $100 to support the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.

This was definitely a great experience for me, and I would love to organize another food drive in the future.  If you have any interest in being a part of one, let me know and we can join forces <3

Love!

P.S. Our "Virtual Food Drive" is still set up, and can be accessed HERE.  If you feel like donating to a great cause any time, you can do so there!

Food Drive- Share the LOVE

It’s time for a Food Drive! I am holding a food drive on SATURDAY, December 18th to help the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank. This is a great chance to make a difference in our community. I encourage you to join us in our efforts to help our less fortunate neighbors.

The food and funds we raise will help the Foodbank supply food to over 550 charitable agencies with more than 900 sites that provide food for low-income children, fam
ilies, senior citizens and individuals in need throughout Los Angeles County.

One in seven local residents now faces hunger with the impact of hunger hitting children and seniors the hardest.

Our help allows the Foodbank secure and distribute nutritious food such as fruits and vegetables as well as staples like tuna, pasta, beans and rice to serve more children and families. With every $1 we raise, the Foodbank can distribute enough food for 4 meals.
You help is vitally important. 


Here are ways to help: 


Donate by check or online at our Virtual Food Drive page located at 


http://www.lafoodbank.org/virtual-food-drive/donor-pledge.aspx?member=D21183820D122566E51E5AC1F9DC541D


Donate nonperishable food items in the Foodbank donation boxes located
at:
224 S. Glendora Ave., West Covina, CA 91790

during the drive.

Much needed food items include:
canned protein such as tuna, sardines, stew, soups
peanut butter & jelly
canned fruits & vegetables
fruit juices
staples such as beans, rice, pasta
personal care items including lotion, deodorant, toothpaste

Thank you!!!!

SHARE THE LOVE!




EDIT:  A great idea was to share any hotel toiletries you may have collected over the years.  Since you didnt pay for these, its a free and easy way to share something that could mean a lot to those less fortunate.  Thanks for sharing that idea, Becky!
