Gifts - The Little Gifts Count





Pretty Statements






It is the small gifts that matter the most.   The little things which shout joy and bring forth spring like memories of apple pie, sunshine, lemonade and of course thoughtfulness.  Yes, a shiny blue teacup, flower earrings, a pair of brightly hued sunglasses or a dash of cherry red lipstick changes the day from dreary to cheery.   The small things in Spring 2017 become center stage adding a sense of hope, delight and happiness to come.

The airwaves, print, social media, or any form of communication is constantly swirling at a high voltage.  The never-ending fables, unrest, destruction, statistics, changes our way of life and follows the path of what I call - The Shift.  A shift that we have no control over but can deal with as gracefully as possible.
