Not Just Another Fall Season
Just when I was getting somewhat used to the heat of a brutal 2016 summer, I pulled up behind a big yellow school bus with red lights flashing as it loaded the little kiddies up for the beginning of another school year. It’s still August. When I was a kid, yes they had automobiles and electric lights way back then, the school year didn’t start until September.

Many folks make toys for tots to help the US Marine Corps. Set a goal and start now. Others visit nursing homes with holiday gifts made in advance. Start now. Then there are the myriad of fall festivals. Maybe this is the year you build enough inventory to do a few. Start now. You might even make a few bucks, but you will have a ball meeting folks and showing off your stuff. One year, I made turned lidded boxes from exotic woods for everyone in my family. I have some customers who make special Christmas Ornaments for their families and they have to start now. Last year, Sweet Janice and I enrolled in evening courses and have completed three semesters so far! We even completed one semester online while we were out on the show circuit in a hotel room far far away. Maybe this is the year you begin a new family tradition for the holidays. Maybe this season you teach a class on how you make your favorite Christmas gifts for your own family. Maybe this year you invite a young family with no relatives nearby to share Thanksgiving dinner at your house. How about helping a single mom with Christmas for her kids this year? Set a specific amount and start saving for it now.
This year, for sure, purpose to make time to vote in this very important Presidential election. I ask you to join me in praying daily for our country, our military, and our leadership as well as for those dear to us. It seems like we are losing friends and family more often these days and when they are gone it’s too late. Call someone this week even if you just say hello and let them know you are thinking of them. Because, wherever you go, there you are.
