A Little Bell Goes Off

Lets face it, there is a lot of hard work in a lifetime. Going to school, a career, raising a family, then helping with grandkids. It can be happy work, and if you’re lucky, much of it is. But it always seems like that rest and relaxation part is always over just one more hill. […]

March 2023 – Willows Life News

Spring Is Almost Here! Here we stand in the no man’s land between winter and spring… in other words, March. Full of hope and frustrations, March is tempestuous and teasing. Picture my current frame of mind — I’m watching snow fall as I write. Although winter has been comparatively mild this year, it feels like […]

More Than A Job

Did you know that on average we spend a third of our lives at work? When you think about it that way, where we choose to spend those working hours takes on a whole new meaning doesn’t it? As an employer, it’s not enough to just issue a paycheck every week. It’s not enough to […]

The Timeless Charm of New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions are timeless and charming for so many reasons. First of all, deep down, we know we’re not going to keep them…not most of them, or not for a whole year anyway. But we still make them, year after year, enthusiastically. Second, we probably saw our Mom or Dad make them, and who […]
