www.pinterest.com This could be my first thankful, but truthfully I don’t live in
an earthquake area so my first thankful is, we are home- nowhere to go but to hang

Compassion Is A Gesture...Not A Behavior!
I’m not sure what
tone I want to use for tomorrow’s 1000 Voices of Compassion.  Earlier this week, in my 10 Things of
Thankful post, I tried to explain my absence since October, although I
explained that it was a personal problem, I also added how very sad ...

My 10 Thankfuls - The Simple Things - We are Warm, Fed, and Together
It was wonderful participating in the 1000 Speak of Compassion . I was a little nervous adding my post about compassion, nervous to get it in
on time, worried about the content, yet I overcame any doubt and did my
part.  Humbly I say to that, I try my
best ...

Finally, a Post - “Can We All Get Along?”
I have not written a post in a long time, my last post was in October,
I was in the middle of a Blogher challenge, which at that time, my efforts, and
enthusiasm all went kaput.  Seriously,
saying that I was deflated was an understatement- what was the fina...

Introduction
 I am a lover of words, I write stuff down on pieces of  paper that are near me. I love home-cooked meals and enjoy cooking for my family and friends; I get a thrill introducing my children to something new, or something old like a meal from my childhood. Mangia, Mangia...no talk is what my grandfather would say before our meal; it means Eat Eat no talk! LOL!  I often feel I wear my heart on my sleeve and pay the price because of it.  I want to shed a light on issues  and hope to get my point across with my Squarekat blog.  I am passionate and spiritual and want to share that side of me with my poetry, the wonderful poems and sayings that I find and love. I hope that these blogs reaches an audience that stirs; inspiration, creativity and for lack of a better term makes you go hmm! Please enjoy!
