Compassion Counseling Center Update: We officially start on 1/15/2014! Thanks to a “tribute gift” of $ 1000, Compassion begins counseling in 16 days! A tribute gift is a donation made in honor of, or in memory of, someone special to the donor. Go here to see the beginning of the Tribute Gift Page and go here to honor or memorialize someone special to you! Since Compassion is a 501(c)(3) charity, all donations are tax-deductible.

Also, Compassion will have a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony on Wednesday, January 14, 2015 at 4:30 pm at Oakdale United Methodist Church, 2675 Overhill Drive, Stephenville, TX 76401. YOU are invited! We will have refreshments and tours for all those attending. If you would like to attend, please go here to let me know. Yes, family and friends are welcome! I just need a “head count” for the sake of ensuring enough refreshments for everyone attending.

Good morning, Word Lovers! Last week’s WOW was meed. Merriam-Webster Online says that meed is an earned reward or wage –or–a fitting return or recompense. Having my entire family home for the holidays was definitely meed for me! How about you?

This week’s WOW is parvenu. And once again, my “French” bells are going off. Let’s see how close I can get to this one:

parvenu (ˈpär-və-ˌnü, –ˌnyü) 1. an outcome 2. nearly getting a golf course par 3. an approach

What’s your guess for parvenu? Go here to submit a guess.
