I use the above phase daily, no matter what circumstances I encounter. I have come to realize that no matter what, there is always something to be grateful for. The month of January proved to give me so much, that the phase is what I have been saying almost hourly. I have the fortunate honor to be not only named the South Carolina High School Counselor of the Year, but the South Carolina Counselor of the Year! I have been blessed and favored with talents, one of which is being a High School Counselor for 20 years, and especially spending most of those years as a Director and leader, developing comprehensive School Counseling programs that are effective in addressing the academic, personal/social and career needs of students. I am grateful that I get to do what I love Everyday! To be honored by your peers is one of the most rewarding experiences there is! I end, as I began,

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” ~Joshua 1:9
Face Everything And Rise!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. ~Jeremiah 29:11
I had the experience of attending my first book festival. The BLACKink Festival is held annually and is hosted by the Charleston Friends of the Library. It was such an awesome experience to be in the presence of other authors, each with their unique stories that they want to share with others.
Author and my Soror, Nikki Giovanni was the featured speaker and she did not disappoint in sharing her words of wisdom to everyone there. I saw Soror Nikki when I was a college student at the University of South Carolina in the early 1980s. She was and is still an inspiration to me.
God has given us all talents and gifts to use. Tap into your talents and your gifts. He has plans for you! You just have to set yourself in motion!.
When you do, your dreams will come true too!
The phrase, “This happened and it is bad”
is actually two impressions:
“This happened” is objective.
“It is bad” is subjective.
To solve this dilemma, I say, “Amor Fati!”
Love Everything that Happens!
Thirty-five years ago, I gave birth to this amazing, healthy, and lively baby boy after being hospitalized for seven months.
He was a survivor then, and he is a survivor now.
Today he serves our country as one of The Few & one of The Proud!
He has deployed 3 times and continues to inspire others to be the best
they can be.
He is a loving father and a joy to be around!
I cannot be more proud to call you son!
Happy 35th Birthday Staff Sgt. Huger!
