Be Late for Something Day
Um. Every day I'm late for something so maybe today should be, for me, be on time for something day!  Ha!

Franchise Appreciation Day
First of all, what exactly is franchising?
The Benefits of the Franchise Model
What are the advantages and disadvantages of owning a franchise?
Instead of listing businesses that are franchises, it would probably be easier to list ones that aren't!  And since I don't want to do either *grin* here's a list of franchise industries.

International Day of Charity
Designated as a day to pay tribute to the work of Mother Teresa, this day is meant to inspire us to continue works and acts of charity.  On this day in 1997 Mother Teresa breathed her last but left quite a legacy, a beautiful legacy, behind.

International Vulture Awareness Day
Apparently the Vulture is a fascinating bird. Uh, okay?   They creep me out. Probably because of the introduction I had to vultures through Disney, The Jungle Book and Robin Hood. Creepy vultures. *shudder*

Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 

Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 


So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!

And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!

Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
