Reach Out and Touch Someone

Posted by on Thu, December 23rd, 2010 at 8:00 am

I woke up this morning at 7am to a text from my mother: “Vantasitc!”

They had been on the road RVin’ for approximately an hour and my mom was already excited. My parents are anything but ‘traditionalists’; however, my grandmother is very traditional and lives in what I’d imagine is the smallest town in TX and this is where they are headed. I will not get to hug my mother, father, sister and grandmother this year for Christmas, but I will undoubtedly get their text messages every hour for the next three days keeping me in the loop of all the excitement and goodies they share. Every year when we are apart like this, I am amazed at the way technology has improved. I mean, I can Skype with my mother while I feast away on Christmas and she’ll be pleased to know she was there with me.

I hope you all are spending the holidays with loved ones; if not, at least there are ways for you to be a part of everything.

Live in confidence and celebrate in style!

It was 1989; the fake banana tree was strung with red chili pepper lights and dad was in the kitchen baking up a smorgasbord of sweets and I had gotten my sister the greatest gift a six year- old girl could give her three year-old sister. At 7am and my sister, Ashley, starts screaming, “Thank ... Read More »

All I Want For Christmas Is You

As you gather around with your family this holiday we must keep in mind that not all families are so lucky.
