Liz’s Letter
Hello Everyone,Every so often, I come across a quote that gives me  pause.
“Hold the Light”
If I keep a green bough in my heart, the
singing bird will come.
~Chinese Proverb 
Sometimes it’s an easy task; sometimes it’s a challenge, especially when I turn on the news or pick up a newspaper.

When I first read this quote, I was struck by it’s imagery. A green bough brings lush surroundings. It speaks of vitality. Often world events challenge this imagery. It takes effort and commitment to retain a positive picture.

And the songbird… not just any bird, but a songbird. Who wouldn’t want to encourage a songbird in her heart? I invite you to join me in holding the space for the singing bird. My family and friends will love me for it, as will my staff –and so will others who enrich my day:  the checkout girl at the grocery store, the bank teller, vendors on the phone and customers at Fine Points.

I’ll gently remind myself to begin with one positive thought, then one hour and then a day. Soon whole forests might appear.

And the songbird? He’ll invite his friends and soon there will be an entire choir.

-Liz
