Like all good things, vacations eventually come to an end.
Today is a day many of us count our blessings, and I for one have many.
One of the things I am most grateful for is being heard. Sad, isn’t it? In a world filled with noise, we don’t listen to each other. For me, I feel I am heard so infrequently that it actually shocks me when people get what I’m trying to say. For example, this month is employee […]
I get it. You want to impress. So this weekend has been spent shampooing carpets and cleaning the bathroom tile crevices with a toothbrush. If you haven’t already, you’ll begin your food preparations today or tomorrow. You’ve already decided whether to go with something new or the tried-and-true holiday favorites.
