Clarksville, TN – Christmas is the time of year when we should give some serious thought to the process of giving and what it really means to show our love to others.
I suspect that if most of us tried to remember the best gifts we’ve ever received, we’d find that many of them didn’t necessarily cost a great deal of money. Instead they had a lovely share of thoughtfulness behind them.
One of the gifts I received that I’ll never forget was from a blind man who sat for several hours at his tape recorder and taped for me music he believed I’d enjoy and some of his own words about what my friendship for him had meant. Another gift I’ll never forget came from a student and her mother who made a CD of favorite Christmas songs for me. I listen to that CD in my car every Christmas because it has so many classics like Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” and James Taylor’s “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
Other gifts I’ve received are on a different scale.

We are trying to find our proverbial Bing Crosby Christmas, but it’s buried alive under mounds of defective string lights, years of disappointment, and the weight of our gritty reality: life is not as perfect as the cover of a 1955 Christmas album. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville, TN – Some people expect too much. Some would even like the world dipped in chocolate and spoon fed to them. Frankly, there are times when we all expect too much. We would love for our homes to be picture perfect, our kids to be genius world-class athletes, and our pie to be fat free.
But then there are other times, when we should expect more. And we don’t. Don’t settle for bronze, or even fool’s gold when you deserve the real thing! «Read the rest of this article»

I decided to hold off on writing anything lately. For one, I’ve been extremely busy with helping to prepare the opening of Zack & Heather Gates’ next LASATERS® location in Cleveland, TN.
Secondly, every time I think of writing, I draw a blank – not just a blank, but a not-getting-a-single-thing-to-write-about, blank. I think, that now, I know why… it’s Christmas… kind of.
For over the past month I’ve been traveling to Cleveland each week for 3-4 days at a time. I’ve been working with Zack (and sometimes my oldest son, Joriah) on his store build out; the cabinetry, the pergola-styled booth seating, the counter tops, administrative stuff to prep for opening, and what feels like a million other things. «Read the rest of this article»
