'Tis The Season For Babies

My bestfriend gave birth last Monday! She is the closest thing I have to a sister so her giving birth was mind blowing and unbelievable to me. It got me thinking about the times we've discussed our future children and to think, the moment had arrived where future now became present.  She made the announcement to me and a few of our other friends earlier this year and we were overjoyed.  We knew he'd be due in December so we pretty much waited eagerly (or impatiently) the entire year for him to come.

Bake A Bigger Pie

Now that’s advice you haven’t received from the cultivate blog before! Yes, I am suggesting that you not only bake a pie, but you bake a BIG one. Here’s why. Did you know that when a vampire bat finds a source for food, it is unable to take in more food than it needs? It naturally shares its food with another bat. You’re probably wondering, why are we talking about bats if this post is about baking pies? Sure it is, but before we get into the pies…

Serving Does The Body Good

I love the quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., that says, "Anybody can be great because anybody can serve."  Though spoken in year 1968, I would consider it one of the best explanations of the qualifications of greatness, reminding us of the value of helping others. If you think about it, our world is centered around service. Whether non-profit or for profit, we start businesses because we believe we have a skill or a product that will meet a need; and if your product doesn’t help someone, entertain someone, or make life more manageable for others, you don’t make a profit. I find it interesting that many are aware of how serving benefits others, but do not understand that helping others is actually good for them as well.
