Soul Food - An Unexpected Taste of Kindness

We may not really recognize the power of a simple act of kindness ... until in a moment of need, we are the recipient. Read Jane Jarrell's thankful discovery. Elisa Soul Food: An Unexpected Taste of Kindness By Jane Jarrell It was a regular Wednesday monthly staff meeting at the beautiful boutique, Bradbury Lane, where I work part time. An incredible group of talented and generous women work together to help people in the community find and purchase great gifts. I love working with these women. It is like the television show Cheers, sans the bar. People come in to visit, shop, and visit some more. When walking in the staff room I noticed a table full of uniquely wrapped gift bags behind a lo

Replace the Grumbles

Be grateful for what you do have rather than grumbling about what you don't. A good word for us all from Tricia Goyer. Elisa Replace the Grumbles By Tricia Goyer My husband John and I decided to invite our large family into a challenge: go one year without grumbling and work to be grateful instead.
