How do you celebrate Halloween, Hallow E'en in Ireland, All Hallows Eve, the night before the 'All Hallows', also called 'All Hallowmas', 'All Saints', 'All Souls' Day. Hallowe'en or in Scotland, Hallowtide? Do you create a spooky dinner of Mummy Dogs? Watch a scary movie before going out? Come home to go through your candy and have a great trading of treats? Our time of traditions typically begins with Halloween and extends through family and giving season. After many years of relishing in Trick or Treating escapades, this is the first year that we'll sit this one out.

Break Through

It's often said that a break through only happens after you hit rock bottom. I couldn't disagree more-- A break through can happen during: The first light of morning Your first glimpse of fall A child's smile or laugh The silence of nighttime Gentle swaying of the trees A brilliant rainbow in the sky Seeing an elderly couple holding hands Finally meeting your goal Failing Your pet's adoration The first snow Brisk air on your morning walk The full moon Watching the sunset THINK your best thoughts in order to FEEL your best to TRY and BE your best!

A collective breath of relief for the good days. Gratitude spills from all of us, Because we don't know... What will happen tomorrow? Thank you to everyone who attended the KC Alzheimer's Walk! (
