I would like to thank Comcast Spectacor and the Harlem Globetrotters. for providing me with tickets to the March 8 performance of the Harlem Globetrotters. All opinions in this post are purely my own and a reflection of my delight with the Harlem Globtrotters.
There is nothing better for family than creating lasting memories as I do when I take my children to see the Harlem Globetrotters each year. Theworld famous HarlemGlobetrotters have an incredible reputation for entertaining crowds and keeping audiences on the edges of their seats. I first saw thE\eGlobetrotters in action when I was a young girl, many, many years ago. One of my greatest joys as a mother came when I took my children to see theGlobetrotters for the first time two years ago. The looks on their faces, the smiles and the way one of my twin girls spent the entire game literally on the edge of her seat with her mouth open and eyes shining is more precious than diamonds.
One really cool thing about the Globetrotters is that after the show, they make time to sign autographs for fans. I have not seen this happen at most other sporting events I have attended over the years. My children were particularly thrilled with this aspect of the Globetrotters. Another thrill we had was that after a game, we saw the opposing team out at a fast food restaurant where they were getting a quick meal. This was really cool because the children loved seeing them and being able to say hello, up close and personal.
If you are in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area, this week is your chance to see the Globetrotters in action. From March 5th through March 8th 2015 there are six opportunities to see the Globetrotters.
Thursday March 5 at 7pm Boardwalk Hall

The Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Circus Xtreme has come to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia and all I can say is WOW!!!! Have you ever taken your children some place that kept them on the edge of their seats with their mouths hanging open for 2 hours? Last night my children and I went to the circus and it was an incredible thing. This was our second time going to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum Bailey Circus and believe me, the second time was even better than the first.
We rode to the show on the circus and saw another family on the way as well. I didn’t know the family and was not close enough to see them talk, but you could tell by the way the two children were jumping up and down in their seats that they were definitely going to the circus. Before I give you all the details about how incredible the show was, let me assure you that there are still tickets available for the upcoming shows.

The name of this year’s performance is Circus Xtreme. There really needs to be a name that says, “Oh my goodness this really is the greatest show on earth!” But, puts it in one word. It was incredible, breath-taking and at several points made my heart literally jump inside my chest.
The excitement starts when you walk in and see the iconic Ringling Brothers sign at the edge of the stadium. You know that great and wonderful things are going to come from that hallway!

The high wire walkers did some stunts all those feet in the air that I would not attempt on the ground. It was scary to think about doing but so beautiful to watch.
It is wonderful to stop and take time to see what you have learned about yourself during a job search. Each day there are thousands of people all over the country conducting a job search. These searches take place online, in person and via traditional classified advertisements. Most people look at the job search process as a way of asking for things and hoping for results. While that is one way of looking at the job search, it is not the only way. You can also look at the job search as a way of learning important things about yourself.
The following is a list of five things you can learn about yourself from the job search:
1. How you handle stress
2. Who you are as a person, as a professional
3. What skills you have that are valuable in the open market
4. When you are at your best, most sparkling
5. Where is your area of geographic comfort for work and home More »
April is National Poetry Month so I am celebrating it by sharing a little about my favorite poet of all times, Langston Hughes. Hughes is one of the most famous and prolific poets and writers of the Harlem Rennaissance period in America. That period was the birthplace of a great number of incredible poetry that has influenced my life. One of my favorite gifts of all time a book, The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes My husband bought me this paperback volume about ten years as a birthday gift and I have read it so much it is getting a little worn and crumpled. I have been a Langston Hughes fan since I was a young child. I like his books as well as his poems. He is my all time favorite. If anyone wants to get me in a good mood, pull out some Langston Hughes verses and I will melt in your hands. My husband just has to mention some of my favorite Langston lines and turn to putty in his hands.
The following poem is my favorite poem of all times, I see it as a metaphor for my life as a woman, a wife and a mother. My life has not been a crystal stair, but I am still climbing, still moving and still succeeding.
Mother to Son
Well, son, I’ll tell you:
Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair.
It’s had tacks in it,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor—
But all the time More »
