Remembrance Day. A Day to Give Thanks.

Hey Readers!

Remembrance Day has arrived. A day that we take a moment to reflect and give thanks to those who are fighting or have fought so that others could enjoy peace.

Even though today is suppose to be a more somber day, I like to keep things a little brighter around here on my blog.  Last year, I shared a video of children’s choir singing their appreciation for the day (since this choir is American, so it was Veteran’s Day for them), so this year, I wanted to share messages of thanks from the Calgary Girls’ School in Calgary, AB to the Canadian troops and volunteers for their past and present service to Canada. It is great to see that children have not lost the ability to appreciate what others have done for them.

I hope that this post helps to make the day a bit brighter for you today!

Until my next post, Readers!

Mundane Monday Morning Music: Dido – Thank You

Happy Thanksgiving?Columbus Day Morning, Readers!

It’s a gorgeous (looking) long weekend morning here, and, for once, we are taking things a little bit slower than usual.  It’s rare when we take things easy at home, so my other half and I are going to savour every bit of this last long weekend (for us Canadians) until Christmas as much as we can!

As per my tradition for this feature, I’m also slowing down the beat for my MMMM pick this week.  This week’s pick is “Thank You” by Dido. I know this song is not exactly about what most people would give thanks for, but I’m the type of person who thanks people for what they’ve done for me.  Some people may find this act as being disingenuous, but I think that people should hear how you have touched their life and have made it better, so maybe this is not such a bad pick for today, huh!

I hope that “Thank You” helps you to relax and reflect on this non-working  mundane Monday morning!

Until my next post, Readers!

Remembrance Day Monday Morning Music: Prestonwood Baptist Church Children’s Choir – “Thank You Soldiers” by Michael & Angela Souders.

Hey Readers!

Since it’s Remembrance Day today in Canada (Veteran’s Day in the US), I thought I should honour those who have, or are currently serving in our military with today’s song.

I found this video, and the children made me smile, so I wanted you, Readers, to smile today, too!

Enjoy!

Until my next post, Readers!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Readers!

Hey There, Readers!

It took me a while to send out this post, but I had to you know how honoured I was to have reached 1000+ view on Reese Speaks!  It is the milestone I have been waiting for!  I reached this milestone on August 7, 2013, and I was so excited!

I apologize for taking so long to show my appreciation to you.  I’m just getting settled in my new home/office, and it’s been pretty chaotic until now.  I wanted to make sure I was still sharing the stories, shows, music and ideas I thought were interesting with you.

Now I am WAY over this milestone!  It is thanks to you, Readers, as well as to my very supportive family and friends from all over that keeps Reese Speaks going.  I know that for some, 1000+ views is a drop in the bucket, but for me, it’s a huge deal.

So to all of you Readers, I must thank you for taking the time to pop back into my blog and reading some of the things I enjoy sharing with you.

Thank You Dragonfly

Reese.
