Two facebook friends birthdays, and a day my eyes are opened to see that some people here have changed. But that's another post for another day. It's also.. National Angel Food Cake Day - Not my type of cake. I only care for yellow, or the pillsbury funetti. National Cake Decorating Day. - I'm terrible at making cakes. But my Aunt's husband is a baker and he's really good! National Handbag Day. - I don't care for handbags. Especially since all I carry on me is my phone and money/bank card. And the most important part of today.. World Mental Health Day. "This is a day for mental health education and awareness. Knowing what to say, or what not to say to someone can go a long way toward helping to ensure their mental health." * Huge to anyone who needs one today. xxx

I am not big on handbags either but would lose my key and debit card / and my ID card. It is too little and fear i will leave them somewhere! Cake day is great. My last cake boiled in the oven, so I am not the best cake maker if i can even call that about myself. Will be trying it one day again! I heard it was mental health day. a very important day for me having been treated mentally that last 34 years. I am getting somewhat better though

@Courtlynn i never got as far as the frosting as my cake never was made into a cake! lol! I carry a little purse that goes around my neck and hangs on me so i won't leave it someplace! It is an annoying thing but a necessity if i want to buy anything or want to get back into my house when I return!

I am not fond of angel cake..like the devils food better. I guess I can decorate a cake but I dont, will leave that to the professionals. I used to love handbags..dont like them now like you just phone and money. Yes it is a good thing to recognize all the hardships associated with mental illness.Back atcha, thanks Courtney

Thanks for the hug. I need a hug every day. They are something that just makes a person feel good and wanted. It doesn't need to be World Mental Health Day to get a hug. I do carry a purse. I find it necessary in an unnecessary way, if that makes sense. I like angel food cake, but I don't know how to decorate, but since I'm doing very well on this diet, it will be a while before I eat any sweets of any kind.

I just completed a two-day "mental health first aid" training class, and now I'm certified to assist in mental health emergencies. It started out being an optional class that us city employees could take, but we found that we were getting so much useful and helpful information out of the training that we made it mandatory for all our employees to complete the class.
