To quote John Lennon, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” It is so easy for life to take over when we aren’t looking. Work, being there for others, and raising a family can really “get in the way” of staying in contact with people over the years. Whether it is trying to drop a letter in the mail, picking up the phone to say hello, or even getting a minute to hit send on a text. It can be a struggle for time. Calendars are a great tool for attempting to manage the little things that get pushed aside. Put 45 minutes to call [...]

We can get so wrapped up in the day to day things, working multiple jobs to make ends meet, raising kids, mowing the lawn, doing the laundry, making dinner, etc. that we don't take the time to reach out and connect with people we care about. Then, before you know it, they are gone. Now, this is not a blog to depress everyone. On the contrary. This is just a friendly [...]
