North Lansing Auxiliary Dinner

Once a year the tables are turned on the members of the North Lansing Auxiliary -- instead of taking their posts in the community room in the North Lansing Fire Station, serving pancakes, coffee, dinners and suppers, they are themselves served at an annual dinner at the Sunset Restaurant in Auburn.  This year the dining room was full as Treasurer Connie Wilcox reviewed the year's accomplishments and presented awards to members who go above and beyond the call of duty when serving their community.

"The definition of community is service or service of volunteering by individuals or an organization to benefit a community," Wilcox said.  "Each and every one of you are defined by this definition.  No matter how much or how little you were involved, you all contribute in a very big way.  Each of you contributed to our successful pancake breakfasts, our election day Dinner and Supper, by working, or furnishing goods, or general support."

Within reach I'm taking some time to write now since we're in a tornado watch. The morning at the pool, and dinner tonight in Disney Springs, tornado be damned. It's our last night and we may have a wild time, but it WILL be memorable.

Over the last week we've been fed past reason, walked many, MANY miles (walking all the food off), soaked, baked, been pleased, been disappointed and otherwise had a very worthwhile time.

dearmargaretDear Margaret: I have a fairly good relationship with my mother. However, she has recently made a habit of making subtle remarks that are designed to erode my self-confidence, and successfully so. The barbs are hurtful. She makes remarks on how much money I spend, or don’t spend. She will comment on the color shirt I’m wearing if she feels it’s not flattering. If the company I keep is not up to her standards, I’ll hear about it. As I get older I am getting weary of her criticisms and don’t want to resort to distancing myself from her. How can I get her to stop this behavior so I can enjoy a relationship with her?
