Spring has sprung! The days grow lighter and warmer while those May flowers-to-be are getting lots of April showers.

Did you know that CCHW's logo has many symbols around spring? Many of the symbols are associated with rebirth, growth, and the cycle of life. The Japanese calligraphy in the logo is the symbol for Spring. From death (winter) comes life. This cycle is found in every aspect of our lives. Spring is beautiful and a symbol of rebirth. However, that rebirth isn't always easy. It can be abrupt and uncomfortable. That does not make it bad.

Already blooming in April - Teri has moved into a lovely new office suite in Schaumburg. The street address is the same, but the Unit number has changed. Get the details on our website's Schaumburg page.
