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.

TMI

Just the fact that I could check so many categories for this post proves my point before I even state it. A few months ago I was information, direction, and "how to" starved. Now, today, I'm in Too Much Information overload. I'm involved in two challenges, trying to jump start both my business and writing career, work on my relationships, and read every book suggested to me. So much information comes my way everyday, that I slowly think I'm developing ADD. Last week I sorely felt a lack of focus. I really got into reading the blogs in our Ultimate Blog Challenge group on Facebook, and while I was learning so much, I found my attention constantly split between all the things I'm trying to do. Then one blog finally called my attention to what's happening. Michelle Shaeffer posted this wonderful blog yesterday about why you must have information filters. I just have to share it with you in case you might think you have ADD, too. You will be relieved to find out you don't. You're just a normal product of the TMI age and need a few guidelines. She gives great tips on how to avoid the "I need too…" information trap.

And so, as another day goes by, you enjoy Michelle's wisdom while I go organize my life according to her advice, and….I have written.
