Below is a photo of me, Paulette Motzko at Weera Thai from last night, December 19th, 2017. I discovered this awesome Thai Restaurant when I went to go get my new glasses and Eyeglass World yesterday afternoon. I also  discovered a great new place to get my hair done too and I made some new friends while I was at it. Mary my hairstylist, was also from California was one new friend and a wonderful, sweet handsome engineer was the second and one of my highlights of my year!

 I was blessed all the way around and saved $200 on my two pair of progressive bifocals by not going to Sears Optical.

I hope you make the remaining days in 2017 memorable and very special.

Thanksgiving Every Day: Thankfulness is a Mindsetest and Way of Life

Me choosing scrumptious subtlety sweet Italian Lemon Cream Cake at Fellini’s Italian Restaurant at the Stratosphere by candlelight late at night

which is something I typically don’t do as I go to bed pretty early and get up pretty early, but something told me to just go out and enjoy my Thanksgiving the day before all the crowds blocked the freeway getting down to the strip today on Thanksgiving. So, since I took a nap and got extra sleep I was able to go out down to Roxy’s Diner where I have lots of friends who work there, and it’s always a wonderful time there and I had an open faced turkey sandwich, which was almost a Thanksgiving dinner! It was so big that I’m going to be in the leftovers today.

The photo that miraculously had enough power, even on power saver to make possible. 

I didn’t take my usual three batteries for my Note 4, and didn’t really want to sit at Starbucks doing work like I usually do, OR carry a bunch of “junk” with me that weighs a ton, like I usually do. We all need balance in life and we need to  maximize every area of our life  be it personal , work, spiritual  and physical exercise too.
It’s good to do something out of the ordinary and be spontaneous once in awhile and communicate with people, not take an earpiece purposely, even if you like to listen to music on a playlist through the day or whatever, but just connect with life and the living.

I know I made everyone else’s Thanksgiving extraordinary that I went out of my way to communicate with in a totally genuine way, and every time I did that Joy  came back at me like I have a boomerang.

They hire people who are really wonderful and kind and go out of their way at The Stratosphere anyway. It was fun to go up to police officers, security guards, people who were traveling from other states, people who sat alone, and people who are doing heavy manual labor jobs and purposely wish them a very blessed Thanksgiving.

People who do that kind of work NEED KINDNESSS most of all because they do their job with smiles on their faces but quite often get lost in the shuffle of life.

 It’s nice when one person looks their name tag and thinks enough of them to call them my name and let them know that they’re important. Things like that can make a difference in somebody’s life.

May you all have a most blessed Thanksgiving and carry the spirit of Thanksgiving with you every day throughout the year.

A copy of my Christmas card this year old had photographed by Nicole, one if the talented photographers at The J.C. Penny Photography Studios.

Some of my home bake shop for the holidays ….

Wherever your friends and family are…wish them live and joy and remember what the holiday really is all about ……

The best gifts don’t come from under a tree but are in the hearts and souls of loving friends and family far and near and friends who are family by definition . 

Bake or make something very special for a few people in your life…

Include the recipes and watch what happens . ..

Have a Christmas Tea 

Enjoy a Christmas Picnic outdoors go somewhere  so you can hear birds chirping in  enjoying nature and great company and fantastic company. A beautiful and scenic place relatively close to you does sets the scene-and bring a nice pic-nic basket withave dishes, silverware and plates and watch the experiences that await you!

For 2017 I want more quality and create great times with all the people who matter most to me…..and to enjoy what I already own more.

What was one of your best Thanksgiving memories?

We all have Thanksgiving stories to tell and memories that stand out from the rest.

Can you share some of the special times that you remember I’m Thanksgiving? 

Was there a time that you donated your time to a Food Bank and cooked and made food for the homeless and underprivileged? 

Was there a time when your family got together and everything and everybody was especially wonderful? 

Was there a ceremony that you and your family and love ones did that no one else did that made it unique?

Share your story of thankfulness with everyone.

If you cannot be positive, then at least be quiet. Joel Osteen

Joel Osteen says: “If you cannot be positive, then at least be quiet.”

…and then, when you have thought about your situation,  and made sense about it with God and silence and self-introspection,  then open your mouth.

As my mother taught me from the time I was a small child – don’t say anything unless you can say something good. And if you’re giving someone criticism make sure it’s constructive because trying to lift people up and bring out the best in people. Everyone has problems they’re going through, they’ve had promised in their life and they’ve dealt with things that probably would shock you. Try and be the star in someone’s night sky and make people glad that they said hello to you.

The worst thing you can do is drag people down into your own mental rut.
