All the gifts and parties cannot take away the true meaning of the holidays – LOVE and FAMILY

The holiday is almost over. Soon, it will be back to work, school and routine. One of the things, though, that is special with the holidays is time with the family. You get to spend more time with the ones you love without thinking of work, constantly answering phone calls, texts or email and the sleeping early so you can wake up early and travel to the workplace. Truly, the best gift you can give to your loved ones is … YOU.

Watching some episodes of CSI NY for the nth time and came across this quote. Seems very fitting when you are about to start a new year with great and big plans. Along with all this planning is the fear of striking out. Then again, what the heck, if you don’t get it this time, try and try again. 

Here is the quote: 

Bravery is being the only one who knows you are afraid. 

Great Holiday Finds #1

Gone are the days of snail mail. Nowadays, we get most greetings on Facebook or Twitter. It’s the birthday of your dear friend? No problem, send an e-card! Is it your sister’s wedding anniversary? Find a cute picture, post it on Facebook with your greeting.

This holiday season, bring back the warm feeling that receiving an actual greeting card gives. No, this is not a Hallmark tagline. Don’t you agree that receiving and reading a greeting card that you can actually hold in your hands is more special than reading it from your phone? All the more, when you see that the message on the card is handwritten!

This is a nice holiday find from Marshalls at Six Corners. For $4.99, you get 20 greeting cards. The inside has enough space for you to write a personal note to your friend and loved one. These cards come in a lot of amazing and lovely designs and with various messages. It’s a good deal!

What are you waiting for? Bring back the warm feeling of the holidays. Make the most out of good deals in Chicago!

Story originally posted in Power of Positivity:

A poor man was selling goods door to door to pay his way through medical school. At the end of the day, he reached into his pockets only to find a few crumpled dollar bills left. He was hungry but couldn’t afford to go to a restaurant to eat. He decided to ask for a meal at the next house.

When he knocked, a young woman opened the door. Startled, he decided to ask for something to drink instead of some food. She returned with a tall glass of milk and as the man sipped it, he asked “how much do I owe you?”

“Nothing” she said. “It costs $0 to be a decent human being.”

The young man thanked her with a grateful hear and went on his way truly inspired.

Years later, the young woman became very ill and needed immediate surgery. The surgeon entered the room and stopped suddenly noticing the woman who helped him so much when he was a medical student. From that moment on, he took great care in ensuring the success of her surgery.

When the bill was sent to the woman weeks later, she opened it to find a note attached that read, “paid in full with one glass of milk.”

Don’t be afraid to show care for others. It can come back in unexpected ways.
