“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle”. ~Albert Einstein
“If we change our thoughts from ‘it’s too late’ to, ‘there’s still hope’, we might see some change in the world.” ~Kellie Elmore
Think of someone who inspired you and made a positive impact in your life. Maybe a colleague, teacher, counselor, coach, youth leader…
When you’re inspired to make a positive impact in someone else’s life, you’ll make a positive impact in your life too, and build a partnership of trust and mutual respect.
Be inspired to turn challenges into opportunities. “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can”. ~Arthur Ashe
Merry Christmas to all our family and friends near and far!
Wishing you all a warm, safe and healthy day today! We are having an awesome family day playing games and listening to some great music on Pandora.
For those of you who do not celebrate Christmas, we wish you a warm, safe and healthy day too!
“The best way to resolve any problem in the human world is for all sides to sit down and talk”. ~ Dalai Lama.
This photo was taken on a long and winding country road. Fall has always been one of my favorite times of year. The beauty that surrounds New England is breathtaking. I always look forward to the change in seasons!
This photo was taken so far from Washington and the looming government shutdown. Yet the lay offs (furloughs) are impacting more and more people everyday. From nonessential Technicians on our military bases to Early Education…
Still our elected officials continue to be paid while also accruing benefits. Perspective – From the beginning of the government shutdown until its resolve, the least each of you can do is donate all your gross earnings – not just a portion – to a charity!
What will be the legacy of this government shutdown – these elected officials?
As posted in my last blog: What impact will the “Government Shutdown” have on individuals, families, communities, nonprofits and charitable giving, …? This article by The Chronicle of Philanthropy caught my attention: http://bit.ly/19YPPO3 “We elect officials to govern, and when they fail in their obligations they get a failing grade from us,” said Diana Aviv, president of Independent Sector, a coalition of nonprofit and foundation leaders said at her organization’s annual meeting today. “Shutting down government hurts communities, it hurts poor people, it hurts families. It’s time for them to get back to the business of governing.”
We need to strengthen individuals, families and communities!
