Something from Matt & Mary: Membership 2017

During this time of year, many of us celebrate the holidays with family and friends by eating delicious food, giving gifts and getting together to celebrate the time gone by… And I think I can safely say that we have all been a part of a get together or party that was just plain not for you.  That one family member who brings the fruitcake no one eats, the friend who drags you to the bar or party when all you want to do is curl up on the couch with Netflix, the work party that, well, not a lot of people want to spend more of their personal time at work…. You get my drift.  So where am I going with this?  There is no one, cookie-cutter way of dealing with the holidays.  What works for some people does not work for others, and there is nothing wrong with that!  We all have different wants and needs when it comes to this time of the year and our diversity is what makes us unique.  Embrace it!  Read more here:
