This time of year, we scramble to find the perfect gifts for the most important people in our lives. Sometimes, we know exactly what they want or need and can wrap it up and set it under the tree. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. There are those who have what they want and need […]

The Messy Side of Christmas

Over the objections of my fellow workers, I start playing Christmas music in the office in October. Some Christmas music immediately brings me back to special moments as a boy in wintery Michigan. Christmas is a very special season to me. I know that Christmas has been hijacked by mass marketing, materialism and all of […]
