How To Be Rich?

1 How To Be Rich?

Life is about riches, not wealth!

Wealth is defined as a great amount of money or possessions.  Rich is defined as having a large supply of desirable things.  There are so many ways how to be rich!  And having desirable possessions isn’t what counts.

With the financial recession things are a lot different than they were a few years ago.  Many of us were more set on making money and ‘getting ahead’ and trying to figure out how to be rich.  Working to make money, taking overtime to make more money, sitting at a computer buying- selling stock, finding the best interest rates to move cd’s, working on that resume, trying to find an even more time consuming  job to make more and more money.

11 300x213 How To Be Rich?

Balancing work, home and life can be a struggle sometimes.

Ideas and thoughts are so different now about how to be rich.  The recession has forced us to take a greater look inside ourselves and take inventory of what is important to our true selves, rather than always trying to climb to that next ‘how to get rich’ job.

Spending time with family, friends, neighbors and work partners gives more riches than any ‘thing’ could.  Sharing a game night with family instead of sitting at a computer; enjoying a barbeque with friends and neighbors; taking time to have lunch with work partners instead of polishing up a resume and thinking about how to make and spend money.

That is HOW TO BE RICH.

We’re all taking time to smell the roses and learning how to be rich in so many new ways. What have you been doing lately to be rich?

2 How To Be Rich?

Spending time with family will make you rich!

Salt and Pepper Shakers Add Spice To The Everyday

Posted by Jennifer on August 29th in Life |

Happy Sunday!  I was up early this morning, before everybody else in the house and decided to make hash browns. Alone in the kitchen, in complete and blissful silence, a  relaxed feeling came over me while peeling the potatoes, shredding them in the food processor, pouring the oil in the pan, using the salt and pepper shakers, when suddenly I was taken to another time.

1 241x300 Salt and Pepper Shakers Add Spice To The Everyday

Charly Brown and Snoopy Salt and Pepper Shakers

Our Charlie Brown and Snoopy salt and pepper shakers took me back to a simpler, childhood time, when my sister and I would look forward to our two times a year opportunity to bond with Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts Gang in “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and “Charlie Brown Christmas.”  The sounds of their voices, the funny dancing, the classic music, all fond memories that came rushing back, just by pulling out my salt and pepper shakers.  A pleasant way to begin this day….  

At CardCycle.com we carry a whole selection of character themed salt and pepper shakers.  Be sure to check them out!

Have a wonderful week. May it be filled with unexpected pleasures.

Finding the Right Words for Pet Sympathy Cards

Posted by Jennifer on February 21st in Greeting Cards, Uncategorized |
doghug2 300x222 Finding the Right Words for Pet Sympathy Cards

For many people, losing a pet is like losing a best friend.

For many people, losing a pet can be a very difficult time.  Sending a pet sympathy card to your friend with the perfect sympathy wording for the loss of a pet is a must.  Not only will it honor their “best friend” but it will also make them feel that they aren’t crazy for loving their pet so much.

Whether you are a pet lover or not, here are some ideas for words of comfort to include in a pet sympathy card during this tough time for you friend.  Love is love.  It doesn’t matter if you choose to love a cat, dog or parakeet.  At the end of the day it is about all the smiles you provide to your loved ones.

If you’re looking for the right words to include in a pet sympathy card, try some of these suggestions courtesy of sympathy-sayings-quotes-and-phrases.com.

Dear ___________,
I am really sorry for your loss. ________(pet’s name) was so beautiful and sweet. I know how much he/she meant to you especially when they (insert a funny exchange your friend had with their pet. For example: When Charlie ate your favorite shoes) He/she will be missed.
Much love,
___________

Dear ______________,
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Although small in size, ________ was so large in spirit and she/he will be sorely missed.
With sympathy,
__________________

Dear ____________,
I hope you know that __________ was an amazing dog. I am truly sorry for your loss.
With sympathy,
____________

Dear __________,
I was so sad to hear the news that you lost ________. I know how much you loved him/her.
Love,
_____________

Dear ___________,
I just heard the news about ____________. I’m sorry for your loss. I know you two have been together for a very long time and ___________ was there for you through the most difficult experiences. __________ will be missed by all.
Love,
_____________

Dear ______________,
I am sorry for your loss. I will miss ___________ on our long walks. He/she always made me feel so safe.
With Sympathy,
______________

Dear _______________,
I know you and ___________ were brought together for a reason. I am sure this won’t be the last time you see him/her. I am really sorry for your loss.
Love,
______________

Some more helpful hints….

  • Share memories- Let them discuss and ask them to share happy memories with their pet.
  • Send a sympathy basket- Let your friend who is grieving know you care shows support.
  • Encourage them to open up- Keeping the pain inside will make the healing process last even longer. Listen to what they have to say.
  • Support Group- Sometimes friends are not enough and they might need to share with people who are experiencing the same loss.
  • Help out- Lend your help in any area they may need it.
