Depression Awareness Month

October is a busy month. Breast Cancer Awareness month. Depression awareness month. AIDS awareness month. National Hispanic Awareness month.

Then there is Yom Kuppur. Columbus Day. Canada Thanksgiving Day. Train Your Brain Day (one of my favorites). International Forgiveness Day (another favorite). Mother-In-Law Day.
United Nations Day. Ramadan.

Oktoberfest. 

Bring Your Teddy Bear To Work Day is also in October, but I didn't want to include something that would seem silly. Smile.

Kind of puts Halloween into perspective.

Best wishes to each one reading this for a month of blessings and lots of joy.

I definitely need to train my brain. Heck, I'd need a new one that works to remember all of these. Who knew!

Happy October! Here at our local independent theater they also have what is called "Doctober," a month of documentaries on screen! Thanks for reminding me of all the things that this month will bring, CiCi. :-)

I did not know there was a Mother-in-Law day, or a few of the others for that matter. Happy October to you.

I wasn't "Aware" of any of this. Such an educational blog! Happy October, CiCi!

I think there's a cause or something special every day, it makes it "all" special, doesn't it?

I would be ALL for Bring Your Teddy Bear to Work day! Injecting a bit of silliness into the day makes everything seem better.
