The Pioneer Woman: I am Thankful for You


Only recently did I have the opportunity to view the wonderful, cooking and ranch family called “The Pioneer Woman.” This show became my therapy after my husband passed away. My Angel sister Paula told me about this cooking show, and I have watched it religiously ever since.

Ree Drummond as the Pioneer Woman shares her cooking recipes, her family and their life on the ranch. And, as an animal lover I am so thankful they are taking care of “Wild Horse” on their ranch. People do not realize how valuable the ranchers are to our country by taking in and caring for these horses.

Many wild horses left on their own would not survive the environment or cruelty of inhuman people. This is one time our government did something great as well as the ranchers who protect them under their care, custody and control. I am thankful for all the ranchers who gave them a home.

I am thankful for Ree sharing her cooking skills and different way to change and improve “Traditional” dishes her way. And, I love the opening of the show where the wild horses are running and Ree shows us how much she loves being on the ranch. It is a joy to watch her children in their daily activities as her husband Ladd teaches them how a ranch is operated as his father taught him. These are fine, well-mannered, respectful and happy children.

Ree has to be part Angel to do everything she does as well as making special dishes for Ladd’s grandmother and his parents. She writes cookbooks, display the dishes with her own gift of photography, blogs, home-schools her children, spends time with her family on the ranch helping; and now she and Ladd have a Mercantile General Store in Pawhuska Oklahoma.

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for my family, friends, The Pioneer Woman Show and all the ranchers who are taking care of all the beautifully wild horses.

I told my sister my one desire is to visit the store, and maybe one day it will happen. I am only 18 hours away. She smiled when I told her because she is also a fan of “The Pioneer Woman.”

Sharing Negative and Hurtful Words on Social Media is Unwise


Writing negativity about another person no matter their race, religion or political party is non-productive; and displays a person who writes it as being disrespectful and it shows their lack of care and consideration for others.

Americans elected another president to take office in 2017. It exacerbates me to read all the negative comment about our present President Obama and the First Lady and President Elect Donald Trump and his family.

First, their children can read it and making malice statements to cause hurt and pain to somebody is where I place the bottom feeders of our society.

Secondly, the people’s vote is their voice for the future and if all Americans do not join together this time and bring the “American Dream” back---it could our last chance. That means both parties working together without discord, and finger pointing.

Thirdly, stand up for your country, your rights and be respectful of the rights of others. Do not show distain by Tweeting or writing on any social media. Be positive and find a way to share your thoughts that will be helpful and not hurtful to others.

And, remember what our great President Abraham Lincoln said in his “House Divided” speech—United we stand, divided we fall. A house divided against itself cannot stand. And, I add neither can our country if we do not all stand together for the greater good and instilling this into our children to pass on to generations to come.
