The Special People in Our Lives

During the year, we all try to make sure we take time to recognize and appreciate the special people in our lives.  Sometimes we remember and sometimes we don't.  After all, we are only human.  As cliche as it might seem, the holidays are the perfect time to pause and tell others how much we [...]
