Worst Humanitarian Crises In Decades

Hello, I have been following the plight of these poor families in Somalia on World News with Diane Sawyer the past two evenings. I can't help but cry a little when I watch a mother endure such an unimaginable, pain filled walk to feed her child. Her strength to keep walking is found in the hope of her child having a future, a future in a place that most of us would give up and give in to despair. This in itself is proof of the amazing depth and instinct of a mother's love. But for the "Grace Of God" there go you and I to feed our children and ourselves. If you can help with less than 1 dollar a day, please do so. That less than 1 dollar a day will mean the difference between life and death for these children. Please watch the video below for more information. I included the link for the resources to help aid in this crisis.
Thanks for visiting,

Saturday With Steve Carell

Hi Everyone, Here are some laughs for you this Saturday. My Nephew Robert Hakala of 95.9 FM WATD, a local radio show here in Ma, got to interview Steve Carell for a second time yesterday in Marshfield Ma :) I believe Steve does live in Marshfield Ma and he is a great, down to earth guy, there is no big Hollywood Ego with him. He is part owner or full owner of the local store called Marshfield Hill, I'm not sure which it is. Anyhow he drives to the store for the day in his Toyota, nothing fancy and helps his sister in law by stocking about 40 cases of Snapple for her LOL! For being such a nice guy and always being so gracious with my Nephew Rob, I chose some funny scenes from his movies for my funny videos this week :)

Walk In Beauty

Hello Everyone, As I wrote yesterday on my SNM blog, I find the teachings and prayers of the Native Americans to be some of the most Beautiful and truly Spiritual reads I have ever come across. My favorite line in this poem is "I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy - Myself". I hope all of you Walk In Beauty.
Thanks for visiting,

"Great Spirit Prayer"


"Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind,
Whose breath gives life to all the world
Hear me; I need your strength and wisdom
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever
behold the red and purple sunset

Make my hands respect the things you have
made, and my ears sharp to hear your voice
Make me wise so that I may understand
the things you have taught my people
Help me to remain calm and strong in the
face of all that comes towards me

Let me learn the lessons you have
hidden in every leaf and rock
Help me seek pure thoughts and act
with the intention of helping others
Help me find compassion without
empathy overwhelming me
I seek strength, not to be greater
than my brother, but to fight my
greatest enemy - Myself
Make me always ready to come to
you with clean hands and straight eyes
So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you without shame

"May you always walk in Beauty."

Stopped In My Tracks

Hello, Every now and again you hear someone else's life story and it can stop you in your tracks. That is what Jaycee's story did for me. When your feeling frustrated or hopeless about your own life, take a minute and think of this young women's courage she had to find to survive each and every day for 18 years! It may just give you a new perspective, a new sense of strength in your own life.
Thanks for visiting,
Janet :)

The kidnapping of Jaycee Lee Dugard occurred on June 10, 1991, when she was 11 years old. Dugard (born May 3, 1980) was abducted from a school bus stop within sight of her home in South Lake Tahoe, California. Searches began immediately after the kidnapping, but no reliable leads were generated. She remained missing for more than 18 years. Dugard was kept in a concealed area behind Garrido's house in Antioch for 18 years. During this time Dugard endured unimaginable abuse and bore two daughters who were aged 11 and 15 at the time of her reappearance.

On June 2, 2011, Philip Garrido was sentenced to 431 years' imprisonment; his wife received 36 years to life

Since she and her daughters were freed from the Garridos in 2009, Dugard has spent the last two years healing, learning to speak up for herself and enjoying firsts: like getting her driver's license, taking her daughters to school, simply having family dinners around a table. With the help of family unification therapist Rebecca Bailey and the Transitioning Families team, Dugard and her daughters have worked hard to free themselves from years of manipulation. The therapy includes a unique horse therapy. Just as important as her healing process, is the healing of her family too—her mother who held hope for 18 years that she'd see Dugard again, her sister who was just a baby when she was abducted.

Portions of the proceeds from Dugard's memoir, A Stolen Life, will go to the JAYC Foundation. The foundation is also selling necklaces with the same pinecone charm that means so much to Dugard. A share of the proceeds from the necklace sales will also go to the foundation. You can purchase a necklace or make a donation to the foundation by going to the its web site.

The JAYC Foundation provides support and services to ensure the timely treatment of families that are recovering from abduction and the aftermath of other traumatic experiences.

What Is An Evolved Human?

Hi Everyone, I hope your doing well. I love this article by Johanus Haidner. It is similar to Eckart Tolles theory that he writes about in his book "A New Earth". As I have been working on self improvement, in so many areas of my life the past year, I have grown or evolved, and I look forward to growing and evolving even more so, as there is always room for improvement. With a new awareness of myself, I can't help but notice that so many people get "stuck". Stuck in unhealthy relationships with others and without realizing it, unhealthy with themselves. I hope that what I share will help anyone who really needs to evolve and grow :)

What is an Evolved Human?

Is there truly such a thing as a fully evolved human?

A difficult and contentious question. My answer is, "Not yet." But we're working on it!

There are some parameters that are involved. Most people are not truly evolved, event o what our current potential is. Being a more evolved human takes time, emotional and spiritual maturity, not just physical, and a deep awareness of who and what we are. And, of course, the evolved human must have a self awareness and mental maturity that is of the highest order. This is difficult to attain, and is an ongoing quest, because, of course, no matter how evolved one is, there is always room for improvement! We are, after all, only human. And we are continually evolving into better beings and striving to be better people.

The evolved human is able to think beyond purely selfish ends and means. The evolved human is free in thought, if not body and deed. The evolved human is able to understand himself/herself more fully than is understood by most other humans.

The evolved human does not project his or her feelings on others, but accepts those feelings for what they are - and is able to examine these feelings in a higher level of thought, acting appropriately, and is able to spare other humans from his / her projections.

The evolved human is able to transcend greed, vanity, sloth, irascibility (anger), depression, discouragement, envy, pride and extravagance. While this is not without difficulty, the evolved human is aware, or strives to be aware, of the negative effect these behaviors have on himself and the world around him. And that is enough to deter him from these.

The evolved human will not knowingly lie, as even the smallest of lies can cause harm. The evolved human strives for honesty in all things, difficult though it is. For honesty truly is the highest level of thought. This does not mean that the evolved human is too blunt, rude, or does not spare the feelings of others. It means, rather, that the evolved human will be diplomatic in his/her honesty when necessary and avoid outright lies whenever possible.

The evolved human acknowledges his / her humanity and mistakes, striving to correct them whenever possible.

The evolved human realizes that she/he is not alone and understands our need for human contact and companionship. This is part of what makes being human so wonderful!

The evolved human acknowledges all aspects of humanity, including sexuality, spirituality, intellect, emotional, and the physical aspects of our being.

And the evolved human strives to continually evolve. To grow, grow always!
