There seems to be a trend going around where people post various reasons for being grateful each day. I think this is a fabulous idea, but I find it curious why so many people focus on themselves, and not those who made the biggest impact on their own lives.
When you stop and think about it, words can’t express the true nature of gratefulness. Words can only tell a story we hope others can relate to.

From scrambled eggs to biscuits and gravy, cheese grits to peanut butter toast, it is an awesome way to start your day….
It’s that time of year again.
The countdown to football Playoffs and Bowl season has begun, and the days are growing with excitement.
No matter who you pull for, everyone seems to find a reason to celebrate.
Oddly enough, it doesn’t mark the end of a season, but the start of something special.
The excitement of the college football playoffs is unique because it does not signal a “transition” to an end, but a new beginning….
Just kidding, it’s not that hard being so smart, it is great.
Ok, just kidding again, but I hope I got your attention.
You, like me and countless other cool people and otherwise progressive thinkers, have to deal with a world who accepts that things can be wrong. Some people actually fail and even expect it.

As a smart person, you have to fight these arrogant imbeciles “tooth and nail” to succeed….
