Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

I NOW know why I didn’t know the world was supposed to end yesterday – because it wasn’t. I read the date in the blog reversed. The person titled the blog 12/12/12 and went on to talk about the end of the Mayan calendar on 12/21/12. I knew something felt strange because it wasn’t mentioned anywhere in yesterday’s news.

Still, thinking about the end of the world a week early gives me some pause to stop and ponder how I would live the day if I really had some way of knowing it was going to be my last day on earth. I think the most important by thing I’d do is tell those I hold close I love them and thank them for all the meaning they gave to my life. Other than that, if it was the end of the world, there really is no more to do.

This is really quite simple – why not just do this today and be prepared for next Friday? That way when I’m negotiating Xmas traffic next Friday, getting my daughter from Boston and making our way to NY, I won’t have to be concerned about the world ending, too.

And so, as another day goes by, let’s not wait for the end of the world – or the next national disaster, let’s go ahead and say the important stuff today, and….I have written.
