I havent done a newsletter with our Christmas card before. But I'm thinking about something short and sweet this year. I do enjoy getting them from friends and family... but I dont want to be THAT girl. You know.. the one who says too much and has everyone whispering behind her back. Every family has one.
So here are some easy guidelines to remember if you are crafting a newletter this year:
1. Short and sweet. No more than one page...and keep the font up around 12. Don't skrink the letters to fit the page. We all know that trick.
2. Don't brag. There is a big difference between, "Sara graduated from college this year..." and "Sara graduated from the prestigious University of ____ with top honors and already has a job making more than you."
3. Nothing negative. Yes, times are tough... but if you can't fill your newsletter happy things maybe this isn't the year to send one with your card.
Short and Sweet, positive, and no bragging.
This is AWESOME!
Happy Water Bottling!
I will very rarely ever ask you for anything... but today I am asking for your help. You may or may not know that my daughter was born premature. While she was born at 35 weeks, 4lbs, 14 oz... and only had to spend a week in the NICU, we were among the lucky ones. My daughter is amazing, in the 90% and thriving.
I need your prayers for another amazing baby. Please say your prayers for Ashton Allen. He was born on his Mommy's Birthday...but only at 23 weeks. He came into the world under 1 lb and a 1/2... and has proven that he is a fighter, just like his Mom and Dad.
Please say your prayers of health and strength for ASHTON ALLEN. He reached 24 weeks today. Every prayer, well wish, and good vibe coming his way will help.
Sometimes in life you have to turn yourself over to faith... this is that time.
I believe in this family.
I believe in Ashton Allen.
I believe in the power of Prayer.
Please pass this along... to your friends, family members, church prayer lists, ...everyone.
Thank you... I really appreciate it.
If you think all that yummy fried turkey is going to really tip you over the Thanksgiving scale... think again. You should actually be more worried about the bread and the mashed potatoes.
Fried Turkey only has about 20-60 more calories per serving. And its SO YUMMY!
A couple of tips for a better work place "vibe."
1. Reduce your EMFS. EMFS are Electromagnetic Frequencies and they DO effect your body. EMFS lower melatonin, a hormone that controls your mood and ability to sleep. Think about this... is your computer tower just under your desk, right by your leg? This is TOO CLOSE. Do what you can to move all electronics away from you.
2. Don't sit in the LINE OF FIRE. Do you face directly out of your office door? Change that if you can... The energy from the office is coming right at you. If you can sit off center or with your back to a wall, this is best. If not... put something like a picture by your screen so that it gets most of your attention. You can also hang a mirror by the doorway so you actually see what is behind you... and not directly out the door.
Hey... you never know. Try these tips. They just may work.
