Sweetest Day - The True Meaning

This is a little late, but I stumbled upon an article recently that described the true meaning and origin of Sweetest Day. It is not a day about big, flashy gifts. It is a day for doing good deeds and gestures. I thought this made perfect sense once I heard the story. We already have Valentine's Day for giving chocolate and roses to significant others. A day where everyone tries to do a good deed is a very appealing idea.

Eighty seven years ago, a small chocolate shop owner took some of his chocolate to a local orphanage. He proclaimed it "The sweetest day of the year." His sole intention was to put a smile on a child's face by doing a good deed. This act of kindness has been celebrated every year since and still is. In recent years, people have transformed the holiday into Valentine's Day part 2. Not many people know the true meaning of Sweetest Day. We want to do our part to get the information out there.

Next time you hear someone remark negatively about Sweetest Day, let them know the true intent of the day. It is never too early to start planning your good deed for next year's Sweetest Day.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a very important time of year for

Breast cancer hit very close to home several years back. We saw, first hand, how this unforgiving disease can beat a person up. We then saw an even stronger person defeat this disease. We at have stood behind this cause 100%. We want to extend a very special poem to you called "God Heals."

God Heals

Remember when you heard the words -
and your mind went blank - you were in another world
God heals
Remember in your darkest hours -
when all that surrounds you is pain and sorrow
God heals
Remember friends' prayers - your family's encouragement
- glimmers of hope from everyday angels
God heals can hear Him now -
always there - yet never this close
God heals
It's just another day -
yet everything has changed - and you hear yourself say
God heals
Birds are singing -
the sky is a beautiful blue - flowers are blooming...
God heals
Truths that you knew as a child -
awakened again with new understanding
God heals
Remember when others can't -
that life is a gift - each day to treasure
God Has Healed

(Example of optional closing)
Laura, this poem comes to you with all our love and support
Love, Joe, Maria, and Kenny
