December Magic!

December is here again! This month can mean so many things to different people. Considering the economic valley that our country is experiencing, it is likely to be month sprinkled with worry and stress for many. Let's face it, even when we are experiencing economic peaks December can still be a bit overwhelming.

Whatever your tradition...whatever your joy...whatever your stress... December is a great time to simply step back and remember the precious gift of life!

When I taught second grade I began each morning with clear objectives for myself and my students. I verbally expressed those objectives as well as post them on the chalkboard so we could reference our goals during the day. I always ended that daily opening with "Let's make it a great day!" Does that mean all went well each and every day? Absolutely not! However, I am a firm believer that there is one thing we can truly control in this life and that is how we react to everything around us.

If your world is falling apart, I recommend prayer and tears. If your world is going splendidly I recommend the same.

No matter the matter "Let's make it a great December!" =)
