OK, seriously people, this isn’t fun anymore. It’s been two weeks since I started this diet, and I am officially starving.
Don’t give me a bunch of baloney (although processed pork products sound mouthwateringly delicious in my weakened state) about how a low-cal protein snack will stave off hunger pangs. A rolled up slice of turkey just isn’t gonna cut it.
Christmas. The very word inspired us when we were children. Time off from school, family, television specials, a family drive to see decora-tions and lights and—in my family—the Christmas story and a musical cantata at church.
As an adult I am both inspired, and frustrated. Inspired to remember those magical times as a child, to watch my nieces and nephews experience the same and to connect with family and friends in a special meaningful way.
While numerous Christians believe that Jesus was born Dec. 25, I don’t, since the Bible doesn’t give an exact date, believe he was born on that day. Some Christians will also acknowledge this because no one knows the exact day.
By now, most people have seen the video or heard the story about former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then fiancée, and now wife, Janay Palmer at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

I have the greatest pleasure of being paired with a Seeing Eye Dog named “Jack”. We have traversed the United States on airplanes, trains and cars to visit family for special occasions. Each time I have had the opportunity to educate individuals on how to interact with service animals. I hope that the information I share will help how others see service animals and their handlers.
