Another favorite of mine is Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. Though bad luck seems to find Eeyore, he accepts what life throws at him, never getting mad, angry or jealous. Unlike Dorie, who smiles constantly, Eeyore’s outlook isn’t always as sunny. He is resigned to what comes his way. The characters approach life in a different way. Dorie is more of a constant “cheerleader” and Eeyore is just a “whatever” kind of guy. Sometimes It’s hard to have a Dorie attitude, especially in these difficult times, but Eeyore is okay too. If we try to maintain a balance between our “Dorie-ish and Eeyore-ish” days, we’d all be in a great place.
Everyone needs someone in their lives who tells you things will be okay; their own personal Dorie who sees hope in the sunshine. (Yes, in Syracuse!) Hope and faith bring new life in mind, body, and soul, especially in Spring! This is the season of honoring the Dorie in the people who have always been there for us, our Moms and Dads. This Mother’s Day and Father’s Day consider saying thank you with a lasting gift that honors these special people. Take a look inside for ideas as well as gift suggestions for Communion and Confirmation.
And don’t forget to count the Dories in this newsletter (children 10 & under) and win a gift card for Mom or Dad! Have a blessed Spring!
Take a look at some newly designed pieces of jewelry since our last newsletter. Some were recreations, some completely new and others were images from a sketch transformed into reality. If you can dream it, it can be done. Reset your stones and pay for the new piece with scrap gold! Design is one of our favorite parts of the business as we can created a new piece uniquely your or perhaps a few pieces from one, keeping one for yourself and passing the others on.
