Holiday Wishes Come True

Hi everyone, this blog is from the heart and I hope you can join in and share with me. There were some beautiful ladies in Miami Shores and the surrounding communities that would organize a Christmas Coffee every year on the first week of December. They would have a couple of women talk about a life changing experience and how they had found God. When I first heard about it I was a little skeptical but that all changed when I attended my first one. The whole point of the coffee was to help you focus on the things that really matter, to help you realize the true meaning of Christmas, and to put things in perspective. Although they have not had a Christmas Coffee in a couple of years, I still sit down to reflect every year.
Right after Thanksgiving many of us start running like crazy making holiday more

Home for the Holidays 15th annual Walking Tour
by The Miami Shores Heidi Hewes Chapter of the WCA of The University of Miami

This past Sunday, December 10th 2006, The Miami Shores Heidi Hewes Chapter of the Woman's Cancer Association held its 15th annual "Homes for the Holidays" walking tour. It was a huge success and all for such a great cause.
A group of friends of mine and I made it a tradition to go together to this yearly event. We would meet in someone's house all dressed up and ready to go, and would enjoy looking at holiday decorations, architectural styles and chatting with hundreds of locals. If you have ever been to one of these walks you know how fabulous they are, if you have not, I hope to be able to do the walk justice with my description. . . . . . . read more
