“GIVING What It Means to Give”

GRACE 600X600When you give, you give a little of yourself.  Giving can bring out the best in all of us.  So why aren’t we all giving more of ourselves?  The Christmas holidays season revolves around giving.

The giving season brings about many misconceptions about giving, and when left unchallenged, it can undermine the very acts of giving. When we give to one another or give money for good causes, we should consider giving more of ourselves while spending time with those we love above all.

So to make this holiday special try giving more of your time, talents and skills to those who need it, apart from giving money or gifts.

When you reflect on this holiday season, ask yourself, and reexamine your gift giving habits, and we might just discover that when appropriate give more of yourself, and we will discover, giving more make its possible to receive the largest blessing in return.

Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement dedicated to the achievements of all workers in America. It is also a sign that summer is now ending.



USFlag-PMI would like to wish all of my followers, a fun and safe 4th of July!  This holiday is clearly an American holiday where many of us have fun and spend time with family and friends. It’s also a holiday with significant meaning to pay tribute to the founders of this great country and to the men and women who have fought and died to continue providing the country’s independence.

Happy 4th of July America

“A Day to Celebrate”

The coals are red hot. The flag’s proudly waving. The fireworks are popping and the band’s loudly playing. All over the country we see the stripes and stars. Today we celebrate this great country of ours.
