    A Healthy Body And Mind

    A healthy body and mind can help us get through not only these challenging times, but day to day life in general. In this current global pandemic, it’s more important than ever we focus on mindfulness. You might be young and healthy, but many of us in our communities may be vulnerable, especially the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. Many of the external events swirling around us are beyond our control, but we can control our reactions and adapt to this temporary new normal of “social distancing. A vital component in this adaptation process is to give proper attention to mind/body/spirit wellness – which the practice of Yoga…

    The Wisdom Of Hot Chocolate

    The Wisdom of Hot Chocolate! A group of graduates, well established in their careers, were discussing their lives at a class reunion. They decided to go visit their old university professor, now retired, who was always an inspiration to them. During their visit, the conversation turned to complaints about stress in their work, lives and relationships. Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of cups. Some cups were porcelain, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite. He invited each to help themselves to the hot chocolate. When they all had a cup…

    On Santa’s Team

    On Santa’s Team is about a lesson taught by one Grandmother to her Grandson on the true meaning of Christmas and Santa Clause. My grandma taught me everything about Christmas. I was just a kid. I remember tearing across town on my bike to visit her on the day my big sister dropped the bomb: “There is no Santa Claus,” jeered my sister. “Even dummies know that!” My grandma was not the gushy kind, never had been. I fled to her that day because I knew she would be straight with me. I knew Grandma always told the truth, and I knew that the truth always went down a whole…

    The White Envelope

    The White Envelope is a touching story about how a new family Christmas tradition began. In 2016 this post literally went viral and broke our website. The White Envelope is brilliant!

Oh, not the true meaning of Christmas, but the commercial aspects of it—overspending and the frantic running around…

    An Explanation Of God, By An 8 Year Old. Could You Have Done As Well?

    An Explanation Of God, By An 8 Year Old. Could You Have Done As Well? This was written by an 8-year-old named Danny Dutton, who lives in Chula Vista , CA . He wrote it for his third grade homework assignment, to ‘explain God.’ I wonder if any of us could have done as well? EXPLANATION OF GOD:‘One of God’s main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth. He doesn’t make grownups, just babies. I think because they are smaller and easier to make. That way he doesn’t have to take…
