Sometimes it's easy to forget that Memorial Day weekend isn't just about picnics and the unofficial start to summer. It's about loss and honoring those losses.
My heart goes out this coming long weekend (and always) to families and friends who have lost loved ones while they served. I am thinking of you while also remembering my Uncle who I lost several years ago.
...and to all those who serve, thank you.
Who will YOU remember this Memorial Day?

As the fourth of July sneaks up on us, I think back to two years ago when I spent the holiday working ALL day under the hot sun. I was stuck lifeguarding by myself from 10am-8pm. Since everyone was out on vacation or they already had plans I remember feeling miserable, while all my friends were at the beach.
When I think back to that time, I can't help but feel a little angry that my boss didn’t even offer to pay me time and a half since I watched the pool all by myself, as a 15-year-old, on the fourth of July. Now that I think back, she wasn’t very nice.
Have you ever been forced to work during a holiday?
What I loved about working at #Holiday Inn MKCPK It was like family the work was not always easy but I always had my work family to lean on.

Better communication then indirect communication
Good Morning Community,
Happy Valentine's Day to each of you! As we begin this Special Day many people celebrate in a romantic way. However, today let's take a look at this day in another way. Valentine's Day is a day I celebrate for the love of my job. As I started my day I give thanks to another day on this human planet, next I show my children the love I have for them. Now that is out of the way, I continue to work on making it a better day in the workplace. Greeting people is a good way to start. Although sometimes easier said then done. When was the last time you said Good Morning, afternoon to a coworker? Maybe hold a door for someone? Acts of kindness is a part I display on a daily basis. It doesn’t take much to let someone know they can do it too? I also love being able to help people in the workplace succeed. This is how I can make my day a better one too. Valentines Day is a great way to show appreciation for the simple things in life. Taking the time to appreciate what we have and can offer in the world helps make this world a better place. As the year continues we tend to fall into our old habits of whatever? It takes only a minute to change if just practiced? What changes have you made when applying for a job? Have you refreshed your resumes? Your ideas, thoughts on obtaining a job? Maybe changing jobs or career? Why not start today by taking the time to revisit these things? Make a Plan of Action and most importantly put it into Action! Over the past week I have been to Meetings, Events, Community Organizations teaching people How they can make Changes in there life to better oneself and you can too! One of things I enjoy about being a Delegate is the fact I get to meet new people each day. From Fall River, New Bedford, Quincy, Plymouth, Brockton, Boston, Cape Cod, Falmouth, Taunton, Dartmouth, Somerset, Swansea, and today I’m off to Falmouth Massachusetts! Meeting and Greeting people, listening to there concerns regarding the workplace issues we face on a daily basis. This allows me to share with you the things that matter most in our workplace. It also allows me to learn what is taking place in our jobs today. Over the next couple of weeks I will begin topics that matter most to people like me and you! I appreciate any and all feedback you provide on any and all topics I write about! Remember to take a minute to like, share or comment to let me know your thoughts? Happy Valentines Day to each of you!
I know this is an INSANE time for you. I know this because I am a mom myself. My baby is 20 months old. I love her more than anything in the world, but being a mother is HARD.
So make sure to take some time for yourself this weekend and any old time. Mother's Day isn't just this Sunday, it's every day whether it's a holiday or not. : )
...and in case you forgot
YOU are a superhero and YOU are doing an amazing job!!
What has been your toughest mom moment this past year?
For me, it's been keeping her occupied without screen time while I get my work done! Oh yeah and that one time we thought she might have swallowed a penny haha.
Share yours : )
I am happy to have the 4th off tomorrow so I can spend time with my daughter. Pepsi pays for this holiday off and since I drive for them full time. It's nice to work for a company that values its employees. Looking forward to a BBQ and some beer.
