US Airways Flight 3407

I was freaking out about having to fly in a snowstorm from Michigan to North Carolina on Wednesday evening. I was traveling on US Airways Flight # 3407. Ultimately, I made it home safely.

Less than 24 hours later, I learned that another group of US Airways passengers on Flight 1549 were also headed to NC (from NY) but their circumstances were dramatically different. A flock of geese could've taken 155 lives but, instead, it ended up being a miracle on the Hudson River.

What a testimony of God's goodness! I can't help thinking I could've been on that flight had the airline canceled our flight. We were delayed by two hours with the weather getting progressively worse but we made it.

You just never know how close you can come on a daily basis to it being your last day. That's why its so important to live each day the very best you can by being an inspiration to someone else.

I hope this blog post has inspired you.

Beverly,

Yes, there isn't any promise of tomorrow so it is important to live life by embracing the blessings in our lives each day. Some days it can be hard to do this however, it is so important. I am very blessed to know that if something were to happen to me my family and friends know how much they mean to me.

And it is posts like this to help us remember to be grateful and celebrate our loved ones. Thanks Beverly!

Sincerely,

Teresa Morrow

You Can't Look Pretty and Exercise

While I was out this morning, I ran into a few women, around my age, who were rather well dressed.  One had on a beautiful necklace with matching earrings; another had The Tammy Faye Baker look (face caked with make-up) and another had on a nice pantsuit.  I spoke to each one as I passed them individually but then I thought to myself, "Where the hell do they think they are?!"  WE'RE EXERCISING, for God's sake!

Yes, while I was out doing my morning walk/run around the Duke Wall (1.6 miles in distance), I noticed these other "mature" women out doing, what I thought, was the same thing.  But based on the way they were dressed, perhaps they were just taking a morning stroll.  Now that would make total sense if we were in a park setting----but the Duke Wall is a gravel, rugged, sandy track and when the maintenance crew is in the area working you're sure to get some of that dirt blown on your face and body.

I do know there are older women who won't dare ste…

The Power of Prayer from a Child's Perspective

The other day my 11-year-old grandson and I were talking about a variety of things and the subject of prayer came up.  I asked him if he thought he would make the Shrine Bowl (a football game where the best players in his age group from NC are selected to compete against the best players from SC).

His response:  "Not really because I knew I was competing against kids all over the state.  I thought I was good but maybe not better than some other players."

I asked him if he prayed about it.  He said he did.  I then asked him if he prayed everyday until he found out if he made the team.  He said, "No, I just prayed once to ask God to let me make the shrine bowl team."

I asked him why he only prayed once.  His response:  "Because that's all it takes.  God heard me the first time."

Now I have to tell you I was totally floored by his response!  They say out of the mouths of babes......

And then what did he do until he got the official word?  He continued t…

A New Survey Says Millennials Blame Baby Boomers for Their Troubles and They Should

OK--I've got a new survey to report to you---this one courtesy of Axios and Survey Monkey.

Millennials say baby boomers are to blame for ruining their lives and guess what?  I happen to agree with them despite the fact that I am a member of the baby boomer generation.  

Fifty-one percent of millennials say boomers have made things worst for their generation.  Not only are they in debt from student loans but they also inherited two wars and they face an uncertain job future with speculation that artificial intelligence may replace some jobs they would vie for in their future.  

Baby boomers, on the other hand, don't appear to be trying to leave the job market anytime soon unless they're FORCED out so with retirement age being as late as age 70, boomers can still be collecting a nice paycheck right up until the end.  

No doubt about it, the boomer generation has been a greedy generation.  They have controlled Congress and and been the CEO's of the major corporations in Ameri…
