Hey all! Hoping everyone had a great week! Today’s post is a quickie as I head off to a day of discussion, sharing, driving & fun with a big group of my co-workers somewhere deep, deep in the woods where cell phones don’t work. Yup, it’s time for our annual team building retreat weekend in the BC Wilderness where the bears roam freely and so do the ideas. But don’t worry, we will be in cabins safe & sound ;) I have to duck out early to be back for a special event this weekend, which means driving 3 hours home to get back for the morning. It’s going to be a big day, and one I am really looking forward to (a long summer nights drive alone with good music? My kind of fun). Continue reading

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

― Winston Churchill

I am constantly amazed day in and day out at the power of our words, and the capacity we have to lift each other up or down with them. I’m talking not just about the words we write (for those of you who share blogging as a thing we ‘do’) but also the words we speak. Continue reading

Love. What a wonderful word. When I was growing up, my mom used to tell me her only care was to bring up children that would love. A lovely goal. In the end I can say I think she did okay, and I can honestly say that above all, I believe that love is undoubtedly the one thing this world can always use more of. Continue reading
