Single for Christmas? Another Christmas is upon us. You’ll likely be traveling to be with family and extended family during the holidays.

How do you spend your time? Time is a very valuable commodity and one that cannot be recaptured. You have choices of how you will spend your time. As you wake up in the morning, what is your first thought? Okay, after having a cup of coffee.
