Winter will “officially” arrive on Sat., Dec. 21st. This is one of my husband’s favorite days of the year and he always likes to celebrate the fact that it is the shortest day of the year with the excitement that tomorrow the days start getting longer. The one thing that he challenged me with that I would like to challenge all of you with, is to share with someone something that you are thankful for. Next, please write down something that you are going to stop worrying about that is out of your control; don’t share it just tear it up and commit to stop worrying about it.
Bring on Winter Solstice!!!
"The winter solstice celebrates the longest hours of darkness or the rebirth of the sun and is believed to hold a powerful energy for regeneration, renewal and self-reflection. In Pagan times the winter solstice was referred to as Yule and was a celebration of the Goddess (Moon) energy.
Another exciting time for all of us is the holiday season. Getting together with family which could be having kids back home that are either away at college or grown families coming back to celebrate the holiday season with you. Please be sure to keep those families in our thoughts and prayers that have active military that are away for the holidays, family members that are unable to get back for the holiday’s or that are no longer with us.
Thanks to everyone who helped contribute to our Holiday Hardship fund this year. We were able to help our so many employees make their holiday season brighter and it just amazes me more and more every year how incredible each and every one of you are!! I was fortunate to attend the Press Ganey conference in November and had the opportunity to talk to so many people about Iowa Specialty Hospitals & Clinics and share how amazing we are day after day!!
Enjoy the holiday season with your family and friends and remember the reason for the season!
