On Snow Days

Published on February 12, 2014, by Family Scholar House to the FSH Stories Category.

I’ve been thinking about snow days a lot recently. Of course, we have all had plenty of time to think about them because we have had so many of them. Through the magic of Facebook, I am blessed to have a good number of “friends.” Some are more familiar to me than others and, together, they comprise a unique social group, with diverse backgrounds, experiences, opinions, interests and perspectives.

Through the front door to her warm, cozy home, she darts straight to her room, impatient for what comes next. There, already lovingly laid out on her bed by her mom, is what she’s dreaming about all day – a pink satin gown with pale pink lace trim and a crown that will sit regally on her head. She is a princess everyday, but TONIGHT she will dress like one.

Synergy

Published on August 29, 2011, by Family Scholar House to the FSH Stories Category.

By definition the word synergy has to do with what happens when different-but-complementary individuals, functions or ways of thinking converge to create a possibility larger than ever-before imagined.  In recent years the word has been thrown around in business and technical jargon as the linguistic darling of corporations wanting to be viewed as cutting edge or progressive.  And so they might be—and it is a fabulous word and concept to employ.
