Monday is upon us, and I’m grateful every week for the new beginning again. The weekend was everything it could be, with attending Yesterday and Today Saturday night and ending with the Telethon/Fundraiser for Moving Veterans Forward yesterday. It was a wonderful time.
Jay Miralles, an Air Force Veteran, businessman, motivational speaker, and guy who can do a lot of cool stuff, emceed the Podcast. If you’d like to listen in, here’s the link. Jay isn’t a guy who stays on the sidelines thinking others should jump in and help. He will hold your feet to the fire, not allow excuses, and be by your side until you get it done. He started the charitable foundation 50 Mile March, and walked from Lincoln to Omaha with a crew of others. Funds were raised, spirits soared, and plans are being made for the march next year. It’s energizing to volunteer with these folks, good things happen.
If you’re able, please consider a monetary donation to Moving Veterans Forward. During the month of December, all donations will be matched dollar for dollar by the Foundation managing the funds. It’s a great deal for MVF and the Veterans.
Talk about energizing! I heard from the Nebraska Writers Guild about their their Anthology which will have my short story published in it. I purchased 25 books, and will set up a booth at the Holiday Market at the VFW Post 2503 in Omaha on Saturday, December 11, between nine and three. For less than $20, you will be able to buy a collection of stories, poetry, and short stories. You won’t have to pay postage, either, you’ll be able to take them with you. They’ll make great Christmas gifts! Come by and see me at my booth, under Jewell Publishing LLC.
This is an exciting time for me. I think all this fun stuff will make the holidays happier and speed by. Hope we all have enough time to fully enjoy the days. We have so much more to be grateful for, and plan on showing our gratitude. We can all help others in some way or another.
We have a Christmas Party this evening. It is the only one we have this season. Food and drink with friends is always fun. Remember to take a moment tomorrow to remember Pearl Harbor Day. It’s the 80th Anniversary of the attack. Thankfully, we were able to ward off any further invasion. We are still the land of the free because of the brave. Have a beautiful rest of the day, and we’ll see each other tomorrow.
