New Year's Resolutions, Happy New Year

What if we stop waiting to make a list of New Year’s resolutions on December 31 or January 1, and instead throughout the year make doable, bite-sized achievable goals whose success you can celebrate each day? Let’s face it, many of us are inclined to make a list of goals to stick on our list of New Year’s resolutions and just a few days into the new year, we fall off of the horse. Should we change our tactics? What if?

Merry Christmas, Holidays

There are so many memories woven into the fabric of the holidays. While we can’t change the past or do anything about the future, we can only bask in the essence of this moment.

So on that note, from our family to yours, Merry Christmas, Season’s Greetings and Happy Holidays!

Great reflections!

Holy Night, Christmas, Savior is Born, Wise Men

What if people truly observed and celebrated what they exclaim the spirit of Christmas is all about? Would wars cease and there be peace? Would there be more love instead of hate? Would we really feel better to give more than we receive? What if?

Gratitude, Happy Thanksgiving Day

There are so many heartfelt sentiments we can say about a special day like today. As we wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, however, we invite you to show your gratitude better than you simply utter the customary greetings for today’s holiday.

Romance, Happy Valentine's Day, Be my Valentine

Today is Valentine’s Day and an annual celebration where lover’s exchange tokens of their affection and adoration for each other. But how do you quantify love? You can’t.

True love is not a conditional emotion. You either do or you don’t. A box of chocolates, a romantic dinner, an adventurous escapade, a tear-jerking love story or a thoughtful card can express sentimentality, but does or should the celebration simply end there?

Regardless of whether or not you have a significant other to commemorate this occasion with, just remember to love yourself, if you are by yourself. Or, think about visiting a convalescent home or children’s hospital and share some homemade gifts of love with them. We know they would really appreciate your kindness. Remember, you have  364 more days of this year to share some of that good ole-fashioned love from your heart, if you can’t do it today.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
