"When I needed to add a last-minute gift for my brother's birthday, I heard about Benita Charles Musical Greetings. It seemed perfect. I wasn't able to see my brother on his birthday and I wanted something warm and personal, just for him. He was delightfully surprised to hear a beautiful melodic voice singing just for him. It made his day (and mine)! I highly recommend Benita Charles Musical Greetings to make any special occasion even more special."

Dear Lord, as I close the door on the old year, I ponder the things I've done... the things I've said and the joys I've had I wonder, have I lost or won? 

I've thought of new friends I have made, and the old ones, staunch and true... the paths of the old year made easier, Lord, because I have walked them with You 

I think of all the many times, when my burdens were so heavy to bear, and how my faith slipped away from me but somehow You were always there 

Now, as I open the door to this New Year, and carefully peep inside, I wonder what it holds for me... but I'll throw the door open wide. 

Whatever it brings to me and mine, I'll meet it with a heart so true... I know that, Lord, whatever it may be, You'll be there to carry me through!

Benita & Patience, The Lion at the NYPL 


A funny thing happened to me at the New York Public Library the other day, I was minding my own business when one of the library staff asked me if I wanted to take a picture with Patience, the Lion, the NYLP Mascot.  I said no and I was going on my merry little way. Usually, when you say no to a person, they leave you alone. However, she was persistent and she said, "yes you do.  You know you want to take a picture!" Again, I said, "no, I don't."  Still persisting, she said, "you know you want to take a picture. Put your things down and take a picture!" 

After all of that persistence, I finally took the picture.  I was thrilled.  Patience, the Lion made my day!

Sometimes you have to live a little.  Always cherish the little things in life!

Happy Holidays!
