Accidental Brilliance Simple Holiday DIY Ideas...
...every year I think I am struck with the same thought around the holidays, usually hits me when I am in a store shopping for gifts and people are frantically grabbing anything they can, do they realize that life goes fast and the things that really matter can't be measured by possessions or toys under the tree, can't be rung up at a register in a department store. Are we taking enough time to remember that what people really want or maybe need is to know that you will be there for them, that you believe in them, that you love them. In the end those are the things that will have mattered, the simple things, the things you said, the things you made.
