  A relationship is like a pebble—when it hits the water it creates a ripple that has an impact way beyond where it entered. Research tells us that the greatest source of joy in life is healthy relationships and that the greatest source of frustration and pain is unhealthy relationships. Like the little pebble dropped in the water, the quality of our relationships ripple across our lives, the lives of those around and even impact future generations.

Question of the Day

My wife and I were scheduled to take a long-awaited vacation but since the events of September 11 she has been too afraid to fly and we had to cancel our entire vacation. I feel bad for her but at the same time I’m frustrated by her unwillingness to have enough faith to just get on the plane and go.
With all of your anticipation and planning it’s understandable that you’d be disappointed with not being able to take your vacation. At the same time, dealing with fear isn’t always as easy as just getting on a plane. The fear your wife is experiencing may seem irrational to you, but millions of other Americans have been grappling with similar fears. The tragic events of September 11, 2001 produced psychological and emotional shock waves that have touched the life of every American. Hundreds of thousands of men and women all over the country have had fears about flying, that’s why the airline industry needed a multi-million dollar aid package.
