Holiday Gift Guide

I know you don’t want to hear the C word, but I have to drop it in this entry. 

Christmas. 

Every year at this time I say “next year I’m going to start early” then the next year comes and I don’t. I can’t be the only one, right? This year I was a little ahead, but not by much. Typically I ask the kids to write out things they’d like for Christmas and then star or highlight their top few picks so that I know the one or two things they really want.  I thought I’d share some of the top things with you guys in case you’re stuck on what to get the kids in your life.

Lest We Forget

Today we stop, to remember the people who fight for our country, the people who keep our nation free, for the soldiers still fighting and for those that will never make it home.

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”
 -Joseph Campbell 

“The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men”. – Minot J. Savage
