FAMILY BONDS AND MAINTAINING RELATIONSHIPS DESPITE THE DISTANCES 

After many years of pondering, planning, and procrastinating, in the year 2000 my family and I made a decision to move to Virginia. There were several reasons to have inspired us to engage in such a courageous endeavor. Throughout the transition and setting forth into the journey we found ourselves embarking on a wonderful adventure. Most assuredly the move has proven to be an astonishing ......

KEEPING THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS ALIVE AND WELL

We can all think back to the wonderful times as children, experiencing the wonder, joy and great expectations of Christmas morning.  Over time, all the excitement we shared slowly manifests into a different “package.”  As shocking as it may be, we are adults!  

Now, we are the ones who must be responsible to create the magic!  It is the inherent position bestowed upon us.....

RESOLUTIONS AND GREAT EXPECTATIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR

For some, the end of the year brings upon feelings of relief that another year is far behind us.  But, for others, it’s a way to rejoice for a new beginning!

It’s not hard to stray from the path that we lay before us on January 1st.  Life is complicated, and we can easily retract to our old ways without remorse or regrets.  Although the success rate of your goals may be less than you had hoped for, it can still prove to be positive in the long run with some ....

ANTIOXIDANTS IN FRUIT MAKE FOR A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE

"Fruit is rich in antioxidants" and "antioxidants may be effective in preventing some cancers" are some of the most commonly used phrases today. We've all heard it before, time and again, about the health benefits of eating fruit. It's not until you really start to ponder the notion that the message becomes clear.

Just this morning I was enjoying my whole grain cereal complimented with fresh fruit, and I became focused on .....

EASTER BASKETS AND THE REBIRTH OF SPRING

The hues of spring and the sights and sounds of new life ever so dominant remind us that it is Easter.

Like most holidays, Easter is rich in traditions that stem from our ethnic backgrounds, and further, from ancient rituals.  Let us first recapture the essence of the resurrection of Christ, of which many cultures rejoice and revere.  This phenomenon is replicated as we establish an analogy of the resurgence that is present in all living things.  Perennial gardens bloom exuberantly, tree buds burst with vigor, and creatures in ...

WHO WAS SAINT PATRICK AND DID HE WEAR GREEN, ORANGE OR BLACK?

Green, orange or black you say?  This is quite peculiar, indeed.   Most people do associate Saint Patrick’s Day with the color green.  But simply by observation,  increasingly more popular as the tradition grows, there are some who wear the color orange to signify this celebratory day.   The myth for this relies on the notion that those who wear orange are Protestant.  The “greens” shall be the Catholics.   The accuracy of the third option lies totally ....

MOTHER'S DAY GIFTS WITH A TEA PARTY TWIST

Imagine yourself in a setting that time has forgotten.  You are a woman; you epitomize the images of beauty and grace.  You are the matriarch; you are the core of family values and nourishment.

Loved ones and friends idolize you for your presence and knowledge.  Time has not forgotten the stature and purpose of a woman.  Some women have become historical celebrities.  Visions resurface of  Cleopatra, Josephine,.......

FATHER'S DAY FROM A DAUGHTER'S PERSPECTIVE

Being a woman, it’s hard to imagine what Father’s Day means to a man.  But, from the perspective of a daughter, I can tell you what it has meant to me.  It is difficult to determine the worth of all life’s circumstances as you are living in the moment.  How quickly the time passes, and it will not be long before you treasure these priceless chapters in your life.  You will reflect on the days shared with that special person who made you who .......

VALENTINE'S DAY CHOCOLATES AND LEARNING TO TURN LOVE INTO CONFECTION

As far as we know, and as far back as we can remember it, Valentine’s Day is for lovers.  But we also know that the notion of Valentine’s Day started way back when we were children.  If you share my recollection, Valentine’s Day may have been celebrated with a close relative, or, perhaps, with a schoolmate, by receiving several of those little cards that are .....

GIFT BASKET TRENDS...BIBLICAL LESSONS IN A MODERN WORLD

It’s not hard to notice how spoiled we are as a modern civilization.  When we need food, we just jump in the car and go to the grocery store, or worse - order take-out!  We turn the lights on and off, the heat on and off, and the air conditioning too!

Children, and adults, focus on the television, video games and computers as if it was as important as life itself!! Cook an actual meal?  Wow, how many people do you know who ....

WHAT'S HALLOW AND WHAT'S EVE....HALLOWEEN PAST AND PRESENT

There's a grave difference from what Halloween used to mean, and what it means today. 

The very first mention of Halloween brings images to mind of costumed characters, from the scary to the ridiculous, candy and practical jokes.  But apparently, we have developed a different philosophy from the origins of this ...

 

 



BLACK FRIDAY WOES AMIDST THE SHOP SMALL APPROACH
Every year I am in amazement watching the Black Friday craze.  This year, the retailers have outdone themselves creating even more mania and disrupting family traditions.  Retail employees have been subjected to mandatory work schedules, and succumb to such in order to secure their employment. The camping out, the rushing and aggressive hunt to beat […]
