March 2nd

Good morning America! After a horrible storm yesterday and a very cold night it is still grey outside but looking better. I hope everyone is safe and warm. We are seeing unusual storms across the country this year and my prayers go out to all of those families affected in the middle of the horrific storms that have been hitting this country.

I hope everyone will pray for calmer, warmer weather and a brighter spring.

Turmoil is in the air and the only way to stop it is to put things back in balance. that also means our own personal lives.

My son after loosing his unemployment is very depressed however, I have decided that I have to face each day the same and continue as life goes on and we will make the best of it we can.

Therefore I submitted my next book yesterday and it has been approved. I am not sure how I am going to pay for my proof copy to get it rolling but the Lord will show me the way. If we can’t have jobs then I will continue to write and move my books.

I think that is what everyone is going to have to do in this country. It is time we all learn to use our God given talents and put them to work so that we can survive what comes our way.

If the weather warms up like it is suppose to I will do a book signing on the corner next to my trailer.  There is an empty lot there and everyone drives by. I won’t mind sitting in the sun so pray for sunshine and warm air.

I only need to sell two books to get my book rolling and I know I can do that.

March is one of my favorite months . I love St. Patrick’s Day and it is poetry month and it is the sign of spring hopefully. There are just so many things in March that I appreciate.

Well let’s take a look at the National Days for March.

Hooray IT’s a  READ ACROSS AMERICA DAY AND DR. SEUSS DAY

March 2nd is an important day for children, teachers, parents and book lovers – It’s Read Across America Day.  This annual event coincides with the birthday of one of the world’s most beloved authors, Dr. Seuss.   Read Across America encourages parents, teachers and children to pick up a book and read.

The idea for the event began back in 1997, when the National Education Association (NEA) wanted to create a special day that would encourage children around the country to discover the joy of reading.  The very first Read Across America was held the following year in 1998, and people of all ages have been celebrating the yearly occasion ever since.   In fact, more than 45 million people are expected to participate in the 2012 event!    Reading Across America is so popular, there is even a song and poem.

Myself I found one of my favorite moments being a parent was when I could sit down and read to my sons. I read all the Dr. Seuss books that I could find. Later I took them to school and read them at school to. Then I took my students to day cares and had them read to ore-schoolers. IT is such a wonderful way to enjoy reading.
My grandmother was a story teller and very good at it. I use to love her stories. Then my mother and father both loved to read to us as kids. Reading has always been in my life even when I didn’t want to sit still long enough to read a book.
Become a reading specialist was the best thing I ever did. Reading is such an important part of our life but it also allows us to dream and travel to far away places, having adventures we might not otherwise have.
Now I love to write books to share my thoughts, feelings, and dreams with others hoping that I can touch the life of another person like those who have touched my life.
Hopefully today everyone will read.

Employee Appreciation Day
Employee Appreciation Day first arrived on calendars in 1995.  A Recognition Professionals International’s founding Board member, together with his publishing company, Workman Publishing, created Employee Appreciation Day as a way of focusing the attention of all employers, in all industries on employee recognition.  It is always the first Friday in March.
How would you like to be appreciated as an employee? How about a raise, a bonus, a gift card, a day off with pay, what would be your favorite way of being recognized for your good performance and loyalty to your employer?

National Salesperson Day

 

National Salesperson Day is established to recognize the value of the truly professional salesperson. This day also recognizes the hard work performed by professional sales people.

Who is a salesperson? This is a huge part of the workforce. Some examples include:

  • Register clerks at the grocery store
  • Clerks at your convenience store
  • Door to door sales people
  • Car salesman
  • Life Insurance agents
  • Mortgage brokers and loan officers
  • Traveling salesman
  • Manufacturer’s reps
  • The list goes on and on

Celebrate today by offering thanks and appreciation to any sales people you come in contact with today.


National Salesperson Day National Salesperson’s Day was founded by Maura Schreier-Fleming, President of Best@Selling, in March 2000. She is  an author, consultant, and speaker for salesperson training.

This is referred to as a “National” day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.

However, salesperson should be recognized for the hard word they do with the public so today put a smile on as you go into stores and purchase items whether it be a convenient store, clothing store, or gas station. Tell them thank you for the wonderful job they do and make them realize just how important their job is.

We don’t think about them until the computers go out and the stores go down and they can’t sell us those little daily items that we have grown accustomed to. Then we get angry when it isn’t their fault. Instead, let’s appreciate those small things in life that make our lives easier and more comfortable. Tell them thank you and how you appreciate their service. Remember if they weren’t there your life would be different.

America celebrates ‘National Banana Cream Pie Day’ on 2nd March

 It is the day for all the cream pie lovers who love the flavor of banana in it. Pies are filled with loads of cream, custard and pudding since ancient times.  In 1880s banana made its arrival in United States.
In no time banana find its way in various recipe books and dishes across the United States. Many recipes may be found online for banana cream pie however, in  the authentic banana cream pie recipe you would find crust made from pastry dough, with layers of banana, custard fills made of milk, eggs, vanilla and sugar, and finished with whipped cream topping. To add more taste pecans or chocolate drizzles find its way as embellishments. So if you are a lover of bananas  what are you waiting for bake a banana cream pie for yourself or visit your favorite local bakery and grab its piece.
Myself I will have to enjoy a bananaless cream pie since I am now allergic to banana’s. This is a cruel joke of nature since I love them. However, I hope the rest of you will fully enjoy this wonderful treat.
So until next time remember READ< APPRECIATE< EAT! 🙂
