I was pleased when a Public Service Message (PSA) request appeared in my inbox with the subject line: Take Stock in Children Mentor Training. I’m aware of what an excellent program Take Stock in Children (TSIC) is, having mentored with the organization for several years. The expression “take stock” also jumped out at me. It’s an interesting idiomatic expression, particularly when used around this time of year. More on that later; first, the PSA:
The holidays are in full swing here in Brevard County. To quote a time-honored song, “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” for most of us. Perhaps the holidays bring out your inner child as magical memories of seasons past dance in your head. If you are religious, you’ll be observing the holidays with reverence and contemplation of your faith. Many of us enjoy the holidays as a secular but festive and meaningful time to be with the ones we love and celebrate life in all its beauty.
