Prepare for the future – or at least next week

no room in my heart for prejudice t-shirt Next week is Brotherhood/Sisterhood week. This is celebrated in both Canada and the US as a time to encourage people of diverse faiths to discuss differences and to recognize those things that we have in common. It is a time to be united in our human brotherhood and sisterhood. Will you do something this week to celebrate our differences? Perhaps you can open a dialog with someone of another faith? Perhaps you will use this time to look up a holiday or research the history of a faith you currently don't know [...]

New “You Are Loved” medallion/pendant with quote by Hafez

You Are Loved Medallion My daughter was digging through her closet and found a small print with a quotation that touched her so deeply that it made her cry. When I asked what it was, she told me: “I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.” - Hafez of Shiraz.  Hafez (aka Hafiz) was a Persian mystic poet similar to Rumi.

Thank you for your Excellent Service

It has become common to thank those in the armed forces for their service to their country. They are doing something many of us would not want to do and it shows that we respect their sacrifice and willingness to more than many others are doing. I feel that same appreciation every time I see someone go that extra mile for another. I feel this appreciation in even the most ordinary circumstances. For example, there is that one waitress in the crowded restaurant who seems to care about doing a good job more than they do about their sore feet. Servicing people [...]

The geese are felling a little amorous and loud. For many of us, last year was difficult. Winter held some sad moments and dark night. As the sun comes out on this very cold day, lets remember that spring is nearly here and this is a time for renewal [...]

Preparing to raise a new curtain

Welcome or welcome back readers. In the spring when we are so busy, I think back on January as a blissfully relaxed. The truth is that it could be.

We are working on new products, collating materials and filling shelves as well and getting current orders out. Just this week the new virtue placemats have arrived and they are much more beautiful than they looked on paper. This is so [...]
