Giving to Everyday Helpers this Advent Season

Pujols Kitchen - Sunday, November 29, 2015


Most of us make a list of all the people we want to gift this Advent season but there are some people who should be on that list who aren’t. Consider giving back to your mailperson, the kids’ school bus driver, the cafeteria workers, office staff at your doctor’s office, your hairdresser, etc. You don’t have to spend a mint to do so either. Consider small tokens of your appreciation like cookies you bake at home, mason jars filled with candy, or filled with homemade hand scrub, or gift cards to a local fast food restaurant. A little gift like this will go a long way and let the people who help us every day to know they are appreciated.

What Thanksgiving Means to Me

Pujols Kitchen - Thursday, November 26, 2015


Thanksgiving – The expression of gratitude, especially to God. Too often we forget to express our gratitude. Whether it’s to a spouse for taking out the trash or a friend for always being there, too many of us take others for granted when we should be expressing our gratitude. The same is true when it comes to our health and our families, even our way of life here in the United States. It’s easy to point out our country’s flaws, but it’s also good to remember what a great experiment it’s been.

Every Sunday our family, like millions of others in our great country, goes to our place of worship because of the sacrifices people made for us to have the freedom to worship the way we want without persecution. This is something many of us take for granted every Sunday morning. We shouldn’t, but with busy schedules, we do. When we go to the store around the corner to pick up groceries, it’s hard to imagine a marketplace that’s short on food. American grocery stores stock food that often goes to waste because supply often exceeds demand. Some of us will wake up in parts of the country where the temperature outside is 32° F or below but will stay comfortable in a warm bed with blankets and central heating when others aren’t so lucky.

Every tweet or post on Twitter or Facebook and other social media is possible because of the men and women who died fighting for our freedom of speech. I hope to honor them with the words I speak.

Thanksgiving isn’t about watching football or the Macy’s Day Parade or all the upcoming Black Friday sales. Thanksgiving is about taking the time to acknowledge the freedoms we have in this country, the blessings we have in our lives, our families, our friends, our health and countless other blessings.

It’s easy to complain and blame others for the shortcomings and injustices we see in our world. But being thankful means taking what we do have and making the world a better place. Expressing gratitude means sharing our blessings with others. Canned food drives and serving Thanksgiving Dinner at a local food pantry or homeless shelter is one big step but what about the other 364 days of the year? Random acts of kindness every day and sharing a part of ourselves to help others live a better quality of life is the purest and truest expression of gratitude. 

All of us have dreams and we have more in common than we have differences. This country was founded on a dream. A dream that people of all colors, races and creeds could enjoy certain freedoms and live together in peace. We’ve had some bumps along the way but expressing our gratitude to family, friends and strangers is the best way to fulfill the dream our forefathers had in mind.

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours. 


Giving the Gift of Time on Thanksgiving

Pujols Kitchen - Wednesday, November 25, 2015


Thanksgiving is a day for giving thanks, a day to spend with family and cherished friends. With full stomachs after the big meal, it’s easy to find a spot on the couch and mindlessly watch football the rest of the day. But consider that the best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you. One of the best gifts we can give to our family and friends is the gift of time. Here are 20 questions to make the time you spend together on Thanksgiving quality time.

1. Name one thing about someone in the room that you really appreciate.

2. What made you feel patriotic this year?

3. What do you value most about your life?

4. What do you appreciate about your friendship with the people in the room?

5. Name one person here who can make you laugh, even months later. Why?

6. What is the funniest thing you remember about a Thanksgiving past?

7. What unusual traditions, rituals or habits do you have around Thanksgiving?

8. Name one ancestor that you think about on Thanksgiving and tell us why.

9. Is there a family heirloom at the Thanksgiving table? What its story?

10. What is your favorite part about Thanksgiving Day?

11. What random act of kindness did you preform or that was done to you this year that makes you feel grateful?

12. What do you appreciate about the change of seasons?

13. Name five things that make you happy about today.

14. What does it mean to you to give thanks?

15. How has the celebration of Thanksgiving today changed from when you were little?

16. What is one compliment that you have never paid to someone in the room?

17. What is one thing that you would like to accomplish in the next year?

18. If you could share Thanksgiving dinner today with one person in history who would it be? Why? (Note: it can be a relative)

19. What is one wish you have for the next generation as they begin to establish their own Thanksgiving traditions?

20. What are you really thankful for this year? (Now that we made you think through 19 other questions, we stuck this back in.)

Give the Gift of a Longer, Healthier Life

Pujols Kitchen - Sunday, November 22, 2015


Research has shown that smoking reduces life expectancy by seven to eight years. On average, each cigarette a person smokes shortens their life anywhere from seven to eleven minutes. In essence, the time it takes you to smoke a cigarette equals the time that cigarette takes off of your life.

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. You can lower your risk for lung cancer when you don’t smoke, avoid second hand smoke and get your house tested for radon. Make your car and home smoke free.

One of the Best Ways to Spread Light
