National Domestic Violence Awareness Month


Did you know October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month? I'm sure you know it's also Breast Cancer Awareness Month because all the athletes are wearing pink to show their support and raise awareness. I would like to see them also sport purple ribbons in honor of those who have lost their lives to this crime.

Yes, I said crime!

This site www(dot)VictimToSurvivor(dot)com is here to help you. Here you can read others stories and know you are not alone. Please get help if you are in this kind of situation.

There is help and hope!

National Domestic Violence Hotline - 1-800-799-7233

If you ever need me I'm only an e-mail away. And know I have your back.

Much love & concern,

Anna

October's Party...


October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.

Then in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around."
