This past week I had the opportunity to attend the Building Champion's annual business coaching event, "The Experience", at Suncadia Resort at Cle Elum, Washington. The agenda for myself and two friends attending the retreat included flying into Seattle and then traveling by car to the resort. However, before leaving Seattle, we took the time to "stop by" and visit the famous Pike Place Market - what a treat! Saw (and ate!) some great food!  And peaches...YUM! Saw some interesting sights....! and more....... So.....we had fun at the Pike Place Market  "Experience" BEFORE we got to the Building Champion's "Experience"!  Sometimes you just never know the enjoyment you will have .....when you are just "stopping by"!

  I think this song by Alan Jackson says it all for me....."Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)" and the most important portion of the song "Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us....And the greatest is love...." Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?Were you in the yard with your wife and childrenOr working on some stage in L.A.?Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smokeRisin' against that blue sky?Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighborOr did you just sit down and cry?Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved onesAnd pray for the ones who don't know?Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubbleAnd sob for the ones left below?Did you burst out in pride for the red, white a...

I was excited to begin the September 30 Localism challenge on Active Rain.  I thought it would be both fun and challenging to post daily blogs about the local area AND get an extra 3000 points!  Well, I DID get two posts done: #1 - Second Largest Employer in the State 9/1/11 #2 - So You're a Leader? 9/2/11 And then I lost my satellite internet service.........   In the community where I live, we have endured one of the the most severe droughts in years.  While many people in the nation are concerned about more flood waters, residents in West Central Louisiana, were hoping for just a couple of inches of rain to relieve the parched pasture land - home of many cattle and horses.  My husband comes from a family of cattlemen, so not just our family- but many other family businesses have been...

  In 1959, there was no Kindergarten class available at the the small rural school I attended! This is actually a picture of me a little younger than Kindergarten age. My first year of school was First Grade. We bought "cokes" (which was NOT limited to Coca Cola products) for six cents at the vending machine in the school hall at recess........ We sat in great desks.......one of which I purchased for my home when the old school was torn down!  We read about Alice and Jerry and their perfect lives and wondered why ours wasn't..... Just before my Mother died, she purchased this antique copy of "Friendly Village" for me as a Christmas gift!  She knew I would love it! And my  first grade teacher knew how to use a ruler VERY well - just NOT for measuring!  It was years before I knew that it ...

  O Lord, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all; the earth is full of thy riches. Psalms 104:24 All we have to do is look around us to see the fingerprints of God all over this earth. It's Wonderful Wednesday! What are you going to do with this beautiful day that God has given you? When the sun sets... will you hear that familiar voice say to you "well done my good and faithful servant"? It is my prayer that you do. Blessings!
