Wisdom of the Week
Lao Zi Says

"Deal with things before they happen, and get things in order before the onset of their disorder." - Lao Zi Says


Life happens quickly these days. It is easy to set aside things that need our attention because we are distracted with something else. However, if we are smart, we will make the time to take care of pressing issues before they get the best of us. We hope that you are having a wonderful, relaxing summer!
