Christmas 2014

“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.”

~Charles Dickens

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!


“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

~Vivian Greene

The rain has come to drought-parched California.  So many are so grateful; so many are  dealing with the aftermath of flooding.  Lest we get too far ahead of ourselves, the statistical evidence is that it would take three years of this kind of weather to end the drought.

Although we are inundated by the rain, it is vital that we continue our water-wise practices.


“The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible.”

~Winston Churchill


“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson


“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Wishing you all a peaceful and blessed day!


“There are only two ways to live your life.  One is as though nothing is a miracle.  The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

~Albert Einstein

Veteran’s Day

“Lord bid war’s trumpet cease; Fold the whole earth in peace.”

~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

I invite you to take time this week to honor our nation’s Veterans.


“A mistake should be your teacher, not your attacker.  A mistake is a lesson, not a loss.  It is a temporary, necessary detour, not a dead end.”



“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, until it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”

~Harriet Beecher Stowe



“Interruptions can be viewed as sources of irritation or opportunities for service, as moments lost or experience gained, as time wasted or horizons widened.  They can annoy us or enrich us, get under our skin or give us a shot in the arm.  Monopolize our minutes or spice our schedules, depending on our attitude toward them.”

~William Arthur Ward

Certainly a perspective worth entertaining!  Enjoy your week.
