Why Is It So Difficult To Say, "Hello"?

By nature, we are social beings, well we should be at least!  We meet new people almost everyday and each time we are expected to behave in a certain way.  A way of kindness, a touch of personality and charity.  But why have the small actions of smiling and saying "hello" become so remote and difficult to perform?  I believe part of it has to do with our over social media internet driven society.  Instead of being taught how to behave in a public social situation, children are learning how to use a computer and perform all daily activities on a computer.  I know this is a wave of the new generation, but I find it hard to believe that all forms of social interaction and etiquette should be left by the wayside.  These forms of etiquette may not all be prevalent in today's society, but such manners should be adjusted to fit with modern societal norms.  The art of smiling and saying "hello" to strangers should most definitely not be forgotten!  You will be surprised how much farther you will get in life with a bit a kindness.

The clerk at the grocery store is more likely to help you if you approach them with a "hello, can you please help me?"

The bank teller will complete your transaction faster if you show them a pleasant attitude.

This shouldn't be a shock to you, but the world does not revolve around you.  If you need a moment to reflect on this, just think, will the world continue to turn and function once you have passed away?  Most likely the answer is...YES!  So with that being said,  make your life and the life of others as pleasant as possible.  The bank teller or store clerk may not know your name or what you do, but you might just make their day by being the only person who smiled and struck up a conversation with them.  Think of making other people's lives beautiful and in turn your life will be just as wonderful!

Oreo Cheesecake Truffles Calling Your Name!

Oreo Cheesecake Truffles Galore
What a perfect summer treat.

This recipe is absolutely amazing!  
I found it on and changed it a bit to fit with my own liking, but I doubt there's any wrong way to make these lovely little darlings.

Step 1: Combine a package of family size oreos and one 8 oz. pkg of cream cheese (room temp)

Step 2: Roll the combined oreos and cream cheese into small balls
Let them rest in the refrigerator to harden for about 1 hour.

Step 3: Instead of dipping these into melted chocolate, I warmed up frosting to the point it was liquid.  My daughter picked out the color since it was her birthday treat for school.
Keep these in the refrigerator until they are ready to be served or delivered.

Step 4: Enjoy, because these are so easy and are absolutely amazing!  

(I gave the whole batch to my daughter's school, after eating one,
 I knew self-control would be hard with these!)
