OAC 285 Up, Up, And Away!! It's Our Day!

Wow, August is just robust with changes and new beginnings!  But strangely, it's also a reminder of things past!  For example I received my daily announcement from FaceBook about today's birthdays! A few I had not followed actively, but...


Wow, August is just robust with changes and new beginnings!  But strangely, it's also a reminder of things past!  For example I received my daily announcement from FaceBook about today's birthdays! A few I had not followed actively, but decided to wish them an awesome day!  However, I noticed on one, "May You Rest In Peace". Yikes!  FaceBook is not obligated to remove these listings if they are not taken down when someone has passed!!! Big oops - thank goodness for the delete this post button!

So word of caution on that, for sure :-)  And then major new stuff coming!  Kids off to college for the first time!  Stress for them, stress for the parents and as a grandmother, oh yeah stress is triple by the time it arrives at my feet!!!  This can be a traumatic and challenging week just getting settled in.

Same goes if you have a new graduate starting a new job, or someone has to move and remain somewhere other than home! Up, up and away with life changes!  Not to mention Mother Nature winding down the summer - so many things! Younger ones just starting school...on and on we go.

And, of course, technology has re-invented how we do all of it. You get to connect on line before you ever meet.  You can look at your map for classes ahead of time.  Parents can Face Time, Marco Polo or Skype with you if you get homesick.  Me I called my parents collect from an outside phone booth when I was at school.

And was it not for technology, you would not be listening to me now, and I wouldn't be in Send Out Cards for 11 years.  A business that is online for an offline touch!  How crazy our world is!  We can even send our cards from an app now on our phone! WHAAAAAT!!!

We've gotta move and groove with the changes - up, up, and away this is our day!  Make it your best and treasure every moment!

Passing On A Smile,

P.S.  Big shout out and Happy Birthday to two awesome Inner Circle friends, Lisa Bechtol l and Deborah Anne!!!  We celebrate YOU today!!!
