Twelve Days of Christmas..


From http://www.holytrinitygerman.org/xmascustoms.html#twelvedays:  "The twelve nights of Christmas were primarily a time of rest from unnecessary labor and joyful prayer. On each of these nights the Christmas tree lights and the Christmas candle would be lit, while the family would gather around the manger to recite prayers and sing carols and hymns. Similar services are held in some churches during these nights as well."

Why not take this time to formulate or revise your career management or job search plan? Take a breath and a break!  Enjoy your friends and family and recharge your batteries.  In the coming days between Christmas and the Epiphany, I will share a thought, principle or quote that I would encourage you to consider during this time of reflection.  

I hope you and yours find this a time of health, heart, and healing.... Happy Holidays!

All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth

Every body stops
and stares at me
These two teeth are
gone as you can see
I don't know just who
to blame for this catastrophe!
But my one wish on Christmas Eve
is as plain as it can be!

All I want for Christmas
is my two front teeth,
my two front teeth,
see my two front teeth!

Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could be with you
"Merry Christmas."
It seems so long since I could say,
"Sister Susie sitting on a thistle!"

Gosh oh gee, how happy I'd be,
if I could only whistle (thhhh)

All I want for Christmas
is my two front teeth,
my two front teeth,
see my two front teeth.
Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could wish you
"Merry Christmas!"

Happy Holidays....



For each of the twelve days of Christmas, I will share a principle or theme for you to focus on.
For the First day of Christmas - GRATITUDE.

The deepest craving of human nature is the need to be appreciated.

KWANZAA UNITY AND JOB SEARCH

Picture from: http://www.wackybuttons.com/buttonstore/Holidays/Kwanzaa.php



Unity.   Encarta dictionary defines unity as singleness or constancy among individuals or groups.

If you are looking for work you may feel more alone than unified! But, it is very important to go out of your way to connect with others during difficult times.

Chances are you have friends and/or family thatcare about you and even worry about you.  Take the time and effort (it definitely takes effort) to reach out to and connect with them!

9 REASONS TO BE THANKFUL NOT THANKLESS

Photo from: http://www.morguefile.com/creative/DarrenHester
My Facebook friends have been posting things they are thankful for this month. The posts have ranged from being thankful for four-legged "kids" to  a loved one surviving an unexpected, necessary surgery.  I caught on to what they were doing a little late in the game.
But, it made me stop to think about it enough to suggest this be something you commit to being thankful on a daily basis year around....NOT just at Thanksgiving!
