I want to wish everyone a most joyous holiday season!
This is an appropriate time to reflect upon memories of past Christmas celebrations and traditions. In our family, we were very involved with a Christmas project providing gifts for needy children for many years while our sons were growing up. As a family, we spent countless hours working at the Center. We have tried to instill upon our family the importance of sharing and helping others. It is too easy this time of year to become consumed by all the shopping, decorating, numerous errands and superficial things. Focus can be lost on real matters of consequence, such as the meaning and importance of family. Regardless of one’s religious convictions, this is an excellent time to reflect upon our core values and aspire to do what we each can to make the lives of others around us better, even if it is in some small seemingly insignificant way.
Family issues are obviously important, both personally and professionally. Much of my professional life is spent with clients discussing family and marital issues. In my conferences with clients, I often find that many have obtained bad or erroneous information from family, friends or other sources. That is why, in part, I decided to launch the Ohio Family Law Blog a year ago.
Many Divorce and Family Law Blogs across the country concentrate narrowly on divorce advice. I have endeavored to “look outside the box” and provide a much broader array of information. People whose marriage may be going through a difficult time should have access to balanced information. Parenting is tough. It can cause stress in a marriage. Thanks to guest contributor, Dr. Gregory Ramey, PhD., I have been able to include on many occasions his practical and sage advice on parenting issues. I have also posted many articles which, in one way or another, deal with the impact of our poor economy and related financial concerns on a marriage. Money issues can be a huge stressor in many marriages.
The last year has been an exciting and enjoyable one for me! I have learned a lot about “blogging.” Many of the lawyers across the country who publish family law blogs have offered great advice and served as an inspiration. I am looking forward to 2009 and continuing to try to publish the best family law blog in the land. If you have topics for me to consider including, I would love to hear from you!
I would be remiss not to thank Mike Reinemann, the best webmaster in cyberspace, for all he does to keep our firm’s website and blog professional, unique and rich with great imagery! Officially, “thanks Mike”!
