Heavenly Smile

Words I try to live by

Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

Welcome to our new blog!

Well, I've finally done it- added a blog to my site. I never thought I'd do it since I don't really love to write or share my innermost thoughts and private life.
But I think this will be a great way for me to let my customers know about new products and changes to the website without having to wait for the monthly newsletter (which I usually procrastinate on issuing). I'll also be passing on interesting articles, links and tidbits that I find along my way.
I think it's pretty poignant that I started the blog today- it is exactly 5 1/2 years since my son Matthew passed away. It's also 4 years since my father passed away from brain cancer. So it's definitely a reflective time for me right now.
Thanks for joining me. I encourage you to comment and pass along any info you think would be helpful for my customers and viewers. Here's to many new blog posts ahead.
