Good Stress

I feel like I have been gone all summer and from the looks of my blog, it looks like it. I didn't mean to be negligent, so here is the update. First I have been busy facilitating CE classes for condominium, homeowner, and cooperative licensed managers! They are a terrific group of people and do a wonderful service for our communities by managing all the headaches so the residents can enjoy their lifestyles. Thanks to all of you who attend my classes sponsored by the premier leader in educational workshops, Gray Systems, Inc.

In between those classes, I have been speaking and training and coaching in and out of the office. One of my clients tells me that I "bring peace to the workplace, snappy dress to the humdrum, and education to the masses!" Couldn't have said it better.

In July, I attended Discipleship and Family Week at Ridgecrest, North Carolina, sponsored by LifeWay Publishers. It was an inspirational week with godly speakers such as T. W. Hunt, Avery Willis, Ergun Caner, Roy Edgemon, and Claude King. I was able to hike both mountains while there - Rattlesnake and Royal Gorge. That was a very personal victory!

On the heels of Ridgecrest came the National Speakers Association Convention in Orlando, Florida. What a powerful group of people, but all with the caring and giving spirit of Cavett Robert, CSP, CPAE, our founder. My local chapter, NSA/Central Florida, was the host chapter and made sure everyone had their own bottle of sunscreen compliments of Publix!

Then off to Atlanta for the Personality Insights, Inc., "Share the Passion" conference for inspiration on helping people know themselves and others better.

In between all that, I was able to visit TWICE with my son, Adam, who is serving in the United States Marine Corps. He is currently stationed in Beaufort, South Carolina, and still enjoys hunting and fishing as passionately as ever. What a blessing he is to me and I could not be a more proud mom. He has decided to re-enlist for another 4 years to serve and protect our country. Thank you to him and those brave men and women like him who allow us to live freely. God bless you all.
