The Journey Begins…Anew

It is the end of the school year … time for a chapter to close and a new one to begin. Graduation. It is a new road to travel. Some may be headed to college, some to a job. Many will stay close to home. Others will travel far.

It is hard to imagine what the new day will bring. It is truly the first day of the rest of their life. But, they are not starting on their first day of the rest of their life without having all the steps that led to this day. Graduation is a sign of success. A celebration of all the previous years of successfully moving forward. Family, teachers, and friends have all contributed in these steps. Many will continue to travel the road ahead with them. Fortunately, for most graduates, no matter how far they travel, they are only a click away for advice, encouragement. Today’s technology will help them to remember they are supported and loved. Loved ones will reach out and remind them of their roots and how far they have come if they are ever in doubt.

Celebration of an end of a chapter is in essence a celebration of the next. A gift from you will remind them of who they are, and who is there for them each time they look at it. A great way to celebrate your graduate and all of their achievements is with a personalized gift from GailsPersonalizedGifts.com.

Mark their success and give a lasting gift. What gift from you will remind them of how far they have come on their road to success? Duffel bags are a great idea. Toiletries bags are great for the student that travels. What about personalizing their room at home, dorm or apartment with a Wood Monogram! And Stadium and Concert Totes are a great idea for your coed’s outings. And of course the Clear Zip Purses in their School Colors are allowed anywhere too. All are available (and much, much more) at Gail’s Personalized Gifts. Can’t decide? Give a Gail’s Personalized Gift Certificate. Let Gail help you get that special graduate a unique and personalized gift.

Rain, rain, go away?

A ‘Rainy Day’ story from a guest blogger –

‘April showers bring May flowers.’  ‘Life is like a rainbow – you need both the sun and the rain to make its colors appear.’  ‘I’m singing in the rain, just singing in the rain; What a wonderful feeling, I’m happy again.’  There are many quotes about the rain, and even more opinions.  You have people that LOVE the rain.  They cannot wait to sit on the porch swing and listen to the rain come down.  Then you have those that hate it!  I have a feeling these people are mothers or babysitters or teachers that cannot go one more day without letting the kids out to run and play.

Most people are okay with the rain from time to time.  We all know it is essential to our planet.  Lush greenery, May flowers, streams and rivers – rain is beneficial.  I was one of those people that thought the rain was awesome, occasionally.  I loved to hear it against the roof at night as I fell asleep.  I loved to watch it while sitting on the porch or reading a book.  And then I moved to Seattle.

Now it rains ALL the time.  I had to buy rain boots just to walk the dog.  I have at least 4 umbrellas, one in each car and by each door.  The mountain trails are muddy, always.  It doesn’t pour and then stop… this rain is more like a constant mist coming down.  The clouds and the gray gloom over the city can drive you mad.  The fall season is okay.  You have football on tv and it’s getting cooler.  Staying inside is good. Then winter comes around and you have snow mixed in with the rain.  If you have a husky pup like I do, you get outside in that snow no matter how cold it is!  Now it is March.  And it’s still raining.  There is no end in sight.

But then comes summer.  The sun rises over the snow capped mountains.  You actually see blue sky!  The gray coloring of the sky is transformed into this bright blue mixed with hues of the sun.  And the flowers and trees – they are so colorful! The blooms showcase thousands of colors.  The trees are the most vibrant green.  The sunlight bounces off Lake Washington and you’re happy again.

Even though I need my umbrella and rain boots, and must have a cup of Starbucks in hand, I will still embrace the rain.  Why?  Because the rainbows are worth the rain. The summer is worth the winter.  And because I like the rain, especially if I have my personalized umbrella from Gail’s Personalized Gifts!
