The Gift of Dreams

Gifts. With the beginning of the Christmas Season upon us, I wanted to encourage nurturing the unique gifts we all are blessed with. Last month a tragedy struck our family when we discovered that a young family member had unexpectedly lost his mother. After speaking with him during Thanksgiving, I realized that this young boy loves to draw, and he created for me this wonderful and imaginative piece of artwork.

As kids we all have dreams. Dreams of what we'll be when we grow up. Dreams of what we will do and places we'll go. And our dreams usually have something to do with the gifts and talents we are blessed with. When you see these gifts in others, encourage them rather than tear them down. And I choose to live by "The Optimists Creed".

"You got a dream, you gotta protect it. People can't do somethin' themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. If you want somethin', go get it. Period." -Pursuit of Happyness
