"Pearls of wisdom for October"

Healthy Happy Halloween

 Next to Christmas, Halloween is the most celebrated holiday for all ages!  It often brings out the kid in all of us!  It allows us to be creative, spontaneous and more of the person we would like to be!  “Hiding behind a mask” can also “allow us” to be more of the fun loving, free wheeling, child-like innocence we wish we always had in us!
