BEING THANKFUL

HOW BEING THANKFUL LEADS TO SELF IMPROVEMENT This year, as we approach Thanksgiving here in the United States, I cannot help but be reminded how many people are out there who are taking personal stock of their situation and are unable to really feel like they have a whole lot to enjoy and be thankful for. While some of us will be spending time and energy with our family and speaking with them about the things that we are thankful for, there will also be those out there who either won’t celebrate, or even those who have stopped caring. These people have allowed negative energy into their lives and all they can focus on is how they lost their jobs and how they hate their lives. Always Think Positive! CHANGING TO POSITIVE THINKING How can we get out of this harmful and negative mind set? Take a moment and think about the one thing that each and every morning you can be thankful for. What on earth could that be? The very fact that you are alive this very moment and able to take the time to read this article is proof of one reason to be thankful! Positive thinking is the art of taking a bad moment, a bad day and finding the one tiny shred of joy in it and magnifying it so that it consumes your entire being. This will lift your spirits and help you to stop saying things like “I hate my life” and “I can’t do anything right”. Thoughts like this can only perpetuate the lie, that you are incapable. You are an amazing creature, a human being, a thinking creative individual who has the freedom to be whatever it is that you desire to be, provided that you can maintain a positive attitude about the situation, and give thanks when necessary. Henry Ford once said “No matter if you think that you can or think that you cannot, you are correct”. What does this statement say to you? You are the master of your own destiny, my friend. Will you embrace positive thinking ; stop saying things like “I hate my life” and start on the path to selfimprovement by deciding that today you can do whatever it is that you set out to do? If the answer to this is yes, then you have just taken the first step on an amazing journey that will serve to better your life, outlook, and yes even your relationships and income.  When we think of the idea of being thankful in conjunction with a positive attitude and self-improvement, we are getting to the very root of human compassion. We can be thankful for so much, and yet not have a true attitude of thanks. What comprises the “attitude of thanks”? It is related to the attitude of mindfulness, of being present in the moment and not the past or worrying over the future. When you begin being present in there here and now, you notice things “the song of a bird, the smile on your child’s face and your heart swells. Silently you become thankful for the experiences that you are blessed with. IN CONCLUSION, DON’T SAY “I HATE MY LIFE!” As this thanksgiving comes around this year, take time out to learn how to cultivate an attitude of thanks and on Thanksgiving this year, give your honest effort into remembering all that you have, no matter if you have lost your job , or that that you hate your life. Take this step for you. Becoming a more positive person intent on self-improvement will help you to beat any depression or anxiety that may turn up this holiday season.

AN EXERCISE FOR SELF IMPROVEMENT Let’s try an exercise. You will need: • A notebook • A pen (not a pencil, we want what you write to be written for good) • About 10 mins each morning and evening 1. Write on the first page “My Journal of Thanks” 2. Under that, on the same page write an intention statement, something to the effect of “ This journal is for my exploration of the things I have to be thankful for in my life so that I may begin on the path of self-improvement and positive thinking” 3. After that write a commitment statement “ I, (your name here) will write in this journal Twice a day (or however often you feel that you can commit to) for 6 months (or however long a time period you feel you can commit to) 4. Last but not least, write todays date and sign your commitment statement. On the second page 1. Make a list of three things that you are thankful for that day in a numbered list. 2. Write a short paragraph about how these things enhance your life. 3. After this is done (it shouldn’t take long) go about your day and when things get rough, take a moment and think over these three things and how they make you feel. Think about the thanks you feel for them. 4. Before bed that night, below your first paragraph write a second one about how remembering these things helped you (or not) throughout your day.

THANKSGIVING TRIVIA

• The Plymouth Pilgrims were the first to celebrate the Thanksgiving in the fall of 1621. • The drink that the Puritans brought with them in the Mayflower was the beer. • The Wampanoag Indians were the people who taught the Pilgrims how to cultivate the land. • The first Thanksgiving celebration lasted three days. • President George Washington issued the first national Thanksgiving Day Proclamation in the year 1789 and again in 1795. • The state of New York officially made Thanksgiving Day an annual custom in 1817.

The Barker

• Sarah Josepha Hale, an editor with a magazine, started a Thanksgiving campaign in 1827 and it was result of her efforts that in 1863 Thanksgiving was observed as a day for national thanksgiving and prayer. • Abraham Lincoln issued a ‘Thanksgiving Proclamation’ on third October 1863 and officially set aside the last Thursday of November as the national day for Thanksgiving. Whereas earlier the presidents used to make an annual proclamation to specify the day when Thanksgiving was to be held. • President Franklin D. Roosevelt restored Thursday before last of November as Thanksgiving Day in the year 1939. He did so to make the Christmas shopping season longer and thus stimulate the economy of the state. • Congress passed an official proclamation in 1941 and declared that now onwards Thanksgiving will be observed as a legal holiday on the fourth Thursday of November every year. • Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird of the United States. But it was Thomas Jefferson who opposed him. It is believed that Franklin then named the male turkey as ‘tom’ to spite Jefferson. • The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade tradition began in the 1920’s. • Californians are the largest consumers of turkey in the United States. • When the Pilgrims arrived in North America, the clothing of the Native Americans was made of animal skins (mainly deer skin). • On December 11, 1620 the first Pilgrims (or Puritans, as they were initially known) landed at Plymouth Rock. • By the fall of 1621 only half of the pilgrims, who had sailed on the Mayflower, survived. The survivors, thankful to be alive, decided to give a thanksgiving feast.

• Brown patch will continue to plague St. Augustine lawns as nights get cooler and humidity and rain continue. Discolored circles will appear in low areas almost overnight. Apply a fungicide recommended for brown patch according to label directions. Avoid walking through brown-patched turf. It spreads easily from the bottom of your shoes. If brown patch appears in the same lawn areas every year, add an inch or two of sandy topsoil to eliminate those low spots. • Fertilize St. Augustine turf with a winterizing formula to promote root growth over the winter months. Lower your lawn mover blades now and mow on a schedule that cuts no more than one-third of the grass blade away. • As chrysanthemums and other perennials finish blooming, cut flowering stalks to the ground to permit all strength to be used in making root growth. • Feed roses lightly, but avoid nitrogen fertilizers. Do not prune now. Keep up spraying program and water deeply.

• Remove dead foliage and plant debris to help eradicate insects and disease organisms. Thin out and transfer volunteer seedlings. Beds made now will benefit by weathering before being planted. If soil is heavy, dig six inches deep, leave rough, cover with gymsum and strawy manure, water and allow to mellow. • Bananas are more likely to bear fruit if the trunk does not die back in winter. Cut banana stalks back to six feet, wrap with newspaper and burlap. • Continue mulching for winter. Build up a thick top mulch to protect roots from freezing and winter drying. Don’t throw away those pine tree needles; they make great acidic mulch for azaleas, gardenias and next Spring’s impatiens. • Place pansies in beds after weather has cooled. Use a little blood meat mixed in soil under each plant. • Now is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.

SURVIVING BLACK FRIDAY

Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving and the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, can be thrilling and stressful all at the same time. With stores offering drastically marked-down prices on in-demand items on Black Friday, Thanksgiving Day sales bring big crowds and long lines are to be expected. To successfully make it through the mall without being pummeled by other moms looking for a good deal, we have some tips and tricks to make your holiday shopping spree a little easier: Weeks Before Black Friday: • Make a list of the must-have products that you are shopping for this holiday season, including the names of the people for whom you are shopping. This will make your day more organized and will reduce the number of unnecessary purchases that you make. • Sign up for store email updates so that you will be among the first to know what will be on sale. • Print out any online coupons you may have. • Sign up for free store club cards that offer discounts or coupons. Stores like Barnes & Noble offer such programs. • Consider outlet shopping.   The Day Before Black Friday: • Eat a lot of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and pumpkin pie. This will not help your shopping, per se, but will make you feel happy and satisfied. • Get a good’s night sleep the night before. Thanks to all that food in your belly it shouldn’t be too hard to fall asleep.   The Day Of Thanksgiving Day Sales: • Know exactly the time that the stores you want to hit are open and go to the store that has the best deals and/or the gift you want to get the most first. Be there at least a half-hour before it opens if the gift is popular. • Leave the kids at home; this is not a day to worry about handholding and good behavior.

• Be caffeinated and full - don’t shop on low energy and an empty stomach. • Pack snacks so that you don’t have to stop your marathon-shopping day to grab some grub from the food court. • Bring along a MP3 player or portable CD player to help pass the time when you are waiting to pay for your finds. • Don’t worry about purchasing little gifts today, such as stocking stuffers, but rather focus on gifts that are bigger, harder to find and more expensive. • Consider this a good day to look for that new winter coat or little black dress you need. Clothing sales are usually very good on Black Friday, because so many people are already in the stores looking for toys and gifts. • If a product is not available, but the store offers a rain check, take it. Make sure that when you cash in your rain check you are getting the price that the product was listed at for that day. www.kaboose.com

THANKSGIVING TRAVEL TIPS

A MapQuest poll regarding Thanksgiving traffic indicated that most people who travel by car for Thanksgiving, have more than an hour’s drive ahead of them and 25% have road trips that exceed 200 miles. With all those Thanksgiving travel cars on the road, traffic can get pretty messy. The busiest Thanksgiving travel days are Wednesday and Thursday. If your schedule allows, try to leave Tuesday. It feels early, sure, but nothing dampers the fun of a family holiday more than hours stuck in close quarters, as the highway - crowded with cars at a near standstill - stretches out interminably before you. And since you’ve started a day earlier than usual, you may then be able to avoid traffic jams post-Thanksgiving, by returning on Friday. The MapQuest poll suggests that Friday is the best day to return home for those traveling by car. Most people polled either leave Thursday night or stay for a long weekend.

The time of day with most cars on the road appears to be between 9 in the morning and 12 noon. It follows, then, that either leaving very early or in the afternoon, should also cut down a bit on your time spent sitting in traffic during Thanksgiving week. www.luxuryresorttravel.suite101.com

THANKSGIVING ON A BUDGET

With the economy still slumping, a lavish Thanksgiving might not be on the table this year. But we can still - and should - feast. We just have to squeeze our fistful of dollars a little harder. GO FOR WHAT’S IN SEASON When planning your meal, first consult the calendar. This is no time for asparagus and artichokes. Buy produce in season and you will get much more for your money, not to mention livelier flavors. Brussels sprouts are at their peak in late November; farmers’ markets should have them in huge quantities, still on their stalks. (Serving them sliced rather than whole not only makes them more tantalizing but also helps them go further.) Fresh herbs have become available all year round, so it can be a better deal to buy a bunch rather than an expensive jar of the dried kind - fresh sage might be $1.99 compared with $6.50 for half an ounce dried, which could go stale by the next time you need it. BUY A SUPERMARKET BIRD In an ideal world we would all be eating heritage turkeys. They have outstanding texture and flavor and when we buy them, we help preserve unique breeds. But they are anything but a bargain: A 12 to 14 pound bird, which feeds eight, from Heritage Foods USA goes for $159 including shipping or more than $10 a pound. Supermarket turkeys can be fine alternatives for less than $2 a pound. Just be sure to buy a free-range or organic turkey rather than an industrial one injected with flavored oil. Plus, brining will add flavor and improve texture in even the least expensive birds, all for about $2.29 for a big box of kosher salt, an ingredient that can be used to season the rest of the meal. START FROM SCRATCH Some convenience foods are often ridiculously cheap, loaded as they are with high-fructose corn syrup and chemicals, yet they rarely taste better than homemade. To cut costs and ensure the tastiest of feasts, make your own piecrust, cranberry sauce and gravy rather than opening up a box or can. Instead of paying $8 for a single loaf from an artisanal bakery, bake up some dinner rolls with yeast, butter and flour for a little over $7. A bakery-bought pecan pumpkin pie can go for upwards of $50, but a homemade version will run you $15 and $5 less if you omit the pecans. KNOW WHEN TO BUY CANNED OR FROZEN Some canned and frozen foods are fine alternatives to fresh. Canned pumpkin is one of the great American ingredients and the generic brands are as good as premium labels. You could make a pie using a fresh pumpkin for $5, but you would wind up with a more watery filling than one made from a $2.49 can. And frozen vegetables can be both superior to and cheaper than out-of-season fresh ones; a bag of Cascadian Farms flash-frozen baby peas is $2.69, compared with $3.99 a pound or more for fresh snow peas, the only kind you are likely to find in November. DON’T BE A SLAVE TO A RECIPE If you don’t want to spring for three kinds of herbs in your soup or stuffing, choose one. Or none. Nothing but salt and pepper is ever really indispensable. Substitute water for canned stock in a soup; use a slurry of flour and water to thicken your pan gravy rather than making turkey stock. Instead of investing in a can of shortening for a piecrust, substitute butter for the two tablespoons needed in the recipe. The great thing about Thanksgiving is that the whole really is much more than the parts. Cut corners where you have to and all anyone will notice in the end is a heaping plate.

The journey to that day is an incredible and inspiring story, because God had some amazing plans for Haley and her family. CCS teacher Mrs. Caroline Young participated in the event and wrote this about her experience: “I have never been a runner, but on July 10th, I started my first day of “Couch to 5K” training. I also signed up to be a team captain for Team Haley’s Miracle. Our team raised $1,450 to help match volunteer marrow donors with blood cancer patients, to help uninsured patients and

to fund research. I started off walking and worked my way up to running. I trained almost every day for 10 weeks and on Saturday, September 14th,” I ran the 5K for Haley! It was a great feeling to cross the finish line for her since she couldn’t get out and run as she was recovering at home from her bone marrow transplant. It was an even better feeling when I signed up for the Bone Marrow Donor Registry. There are so many people who are still waiting for their miracle in the form of a bone marrow donor. It is very easy to sign up. Anyone who is interested can go to the Be The Match at http:// bethematch.org/Home.aspx website for more information. Haley’s story was featured on ABC13 news, also.

Michael McCreight, a junior, was the only high school student to receive an inaugural Catalyst Award from Houston Tomorrow, which held its recognition ceremony September 26th at the BioScience Research Collaborative. He was selected from students in 13 counties in the Houston region. The Crystal Awards recognize individuals who propose a large-scale catalytic change that would lead Houston to become the home of the healthiest, happiest and most prosperous people in the United States by 2036, Houston’s 200th birthday. Michael’s proposal, called “Turning Old Travels Into New Travels,” explored how to repurpose something old and unused into a healthy, lifestylechanging amenity for many to access. “The land is already there and nothing would need to be torn down,” he said. While in Turkey this past summer with Global Trek, Houston Christian’s student leadership program offering cultural perspective led by Head of School Stephen Livingston, Michael noticed how “people walked to get places instead of just for exercise.” It reminded him of his own neighborhood, in Houston Heights. “I realized that we have guided trails to walk on versus the busy streets, which encourages our neighborhood to commute more on foot or cycling,” Michael said. “It was then that I realized this would be a good way to try and help Houston.” Former Houston Christian trustee Bill Peel encouraged Michael to enter his tracks-to-trails proposal in the Crystal Awards. The competition required an essay and brief video explaining the idea in detail. This year’s competition recognized individuals in five categories. Adult award categories included Emeritus, Excellence, Engaged and Evolving. The student award category, Emerging, targeted college and high school students. Michael earned the Emerging category for high school students. Houston Tomorrow is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement of life in the Houston area. Houston Christian High School is located at 2700 West Sam Houston Parkway North, at the corner of Kempwood Drive in West Houston.

Golf Tournaments VETERANS DAY HEROES GOLF TOURNAMENT

Vets Journey Home Texas Inc. is pleased to announce it will be hosting the 1st Annual Military Heroes Charity Golf Tournament this Veterans Day, November 11, 2013! The tournament will take place at one of Houston’s premiere golf facilities, The Club at Falcon Point located in Katy, Texas. We invite you to “take the time” to thank a veteran for their service on this nationally recognized day which recognizes all veterans, living and deceased.

18

The community is invited to participate in the Veterans Day golf tournament. All proceeds will support Vets Journey Home Texas Inc., which is a 501(c) (3) whose mission is to provide healing, hope, honor and homecoming for veterans in need and their families, through education and self-discovery.    The program, which was recently recognized at the White House in Washington, DC, allows veterans to meet during a “Closed Retreat” that starts on Friday afternoon and ends on Sunday afternoon. “Proceeds from this tournament will benefit the program which is offered at no cost to veterans,” says Sam Luna, founder of Vets Journey Home Texas Inc.   The program benefits veterans with post-traumatic stress (PTS) and mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) but any veteran that applies is accepted. Recently after receiving the Medal of Honor, Ty Carter, called on Americans to “take the time to learn about the invisible wounds. Know that a soldier or veteran, suffering from post-traumatic stress, is one of the most passionate, dedicated men or women you will ever meet. Know that they are not damaged. They are simply burdened with living when others did not. Know that they, we, are not defeated - are never defeated. We are resilient and will emerge stronger over time.”      At this golf tournament we will be honoring veterans that have made significant sacrifices/contributions to our country. It is our sincere hope that individuals and local companies will consider sponsoring a portion of the event by selecting a corporate sponsorship package, donating to the silent auction, or participating in the golf tournament. Breakfast and lunch are provided for the golfers. Lunch is available for $20, if you just want to come eat with us. Take a shot at a Million Dollars on a Par 3!! And, come see the Texas Fallen Heroes Memorial Wall! (www.rollingthundertx2.com). We expect 300 people the day of the event, including many veterans and some active duty personnel! Come thank them for their service.   Registration begins on Veterans Day, November 11th, at 7:00 AM and the golf tournament follows at 8:30 AM. For more information on becoming

UMBRELLA THEATRE COMPANY ANNOUNCES ITS 2013-2014 SEASON!

CARNIVAL ROUND THE CENTRAL FIGURE by Diana Amsterdam. Regional Premier - November 7-23, 2013. A wild ride through theatrical terrain that sears the senses and impacts the audience at a visceral place, which also manages to be hilariously funny and heartbreakingly real in the five core scenes of a young woman’s visit to the death bed of her friend. Her moment of acknowledgment and comfort comes hard in the face of denial, moralizing, insane positive thinking, desperate chit chat and the existential fears we all harbor about the end moments of life - the great mystery.   MUSEUM OF DYSFUNCTION IV - December 6-14, 2013. Short plays from 200 writers who submitted from all over the US and were chosen by a panel. Co-produced by Wordsmyth Theatre.

“I’m In PAIN” Can Chiropractic Help ME ? We are often asked, “What’s the best way of finding out whether or not a doctor of chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete chiropractic consultation and examination, including x-rays. And to help find out for sure, we will do a complete consultation and examination, including x-rays, if necessary, (procedures that normally cost $187.00 or more) for $25.00. We will make this special program available through November. The only exception to the offer involves personal injury cases (workers’ compensation and auto accidents) in which there is no charge directly to the patient.

SEEKS U.S. FAMILIES IN KATY AND SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES TO HOST HIGH SCHOOL INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE STUDENTS FOR THE 2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR

Ayusa, a non-profit organization that promotes global learning and leadership through cultural exchange and leadership programs for high school students from around the world, is looking for American families in the Houston and surrounding areas interested in sharing their America with international high school students for the (2014-2015) school year. Applications for interested host families are currently being accepted. Ayusa foreign exchange students come from more than 60 countries, are fully insured, bring their own spending money and are proficient in English. Whether from Japan or Brazil, India or Sweden, Ukraine or Mexico, France or Lebanon, foreign exchange students are a window into another culture and a great way to travel the world without leaving your home. “Host families are the heart and soul of Ayusa’s foreign exchange program,” said Heather Wells, Senior Regional Director for Ayusa and the local contact for Houston and all surrounding communities. “Families have been hosting Ayusa exchange students for the last 30+ years and the experience has been transformative for the students, who blossom in the local community through support from the families and schools.” There is no “typical” American host family and Ayusa welcomes all interested families, with or without children, from both urban and rural communities. Host families provide three meals a day and a bedroom (either private or shared). Each student is supported by a professionally trained community representative from Ayusa who works with the family and student for the entire program. All host families must pass a criminal background check and a home visit by an Ayusa representative.

Ayusa is a 501(c)3 and an official U.S. Department of State designated Exchange Visitor Program Sponsor.

LOCAL MENTORS NEEDED TO MENTOR ONE CHILD & CHANGE TWO LIVES!

CROSSROADS is a nonprofit United Way agency that provides mentors for at risk youth between the ages of 10 and 17. Visit our website at www. crossroads-volunteers.org and consider running an ad like the one below in your Copperfield subdivision newsletter. Many young people don’t have strong positive adult influences in their lives to help guide them through these crucial years. Mentoring makes a difference in both the life of the youth and our community. A commitment of 1 hour weekly is all we ask. Help us shape the leaders of tomorrow by contacting Jan, CROSSROADS Volunteer Recruiter at Jan.gibbs@hcjpd.hctx.net or 713-295-2779. Mentor one child… change two lives.

MISSION CY-FAIR

The Cy-Fair community has a new non-profit organization named Mission Cy-Fair. You can learn more about us at www.missioncyfair.org. We are currently needing volunteers to work with our after school apartment ministry serving the children of The Lake and Timberwalk apartments located at 5650 Timbercreek Place Drive. If you are interested, we’d love to talk with you more. Please contact carmen.donaldson@missioncyfair.org.
