For All Happy Fathers!
We are sure hoping that all the Dad's Fathers, Papa's, Opa's (here on earth, or in spirit) enjoyed a great Sunday with their kids. We spent our day tending to the greenhouse and drying some fresh herbs, thinking of our Dad's.
Healing Love for Calgary
We are so sad to hear the devastation from Calgary. The flooding has displaced thousands of people and created much hardship.
We are sending out prayers to all those people and animals affected in Calgary.
As we hear both the tragic and happy endings to during this emergency, we are deeply grateful for all the people who are helping out.
While these are tough times, now is the time to think of what we are grateful for and concentrate on that.
It is tough to focus with all this going on so close to home. My heart is torn apart. Life must go on, and thankfully everyone is pulling together to help get us get back on the right track.
We have been fortunate not to have involvement directly, however Al's sister's husband's family is from High River, and were hit hard. They are going through a huge clean up... and our thoughts are really with them and with our friends who were impacted. We hope your loved ones are safe.
Practicing Self Care
This month I decided to prioritize myself as I was sick for two weeks. I decided to make this an opportunity for me to do more self care.
I have been running ragged getting ready for the Westcoast Hydroponics year end, which has given me too much work and unnecessary stress.
The Calgary tragedy was a great wake up call for me, and a reminder to not take anything for granted. Some of the self-care activities I did were:
Daily (Wayne Dyer, New Reality and Louise Hay which I find very nice.)
- Walking Daily (and thinking of flowers!)
- Relaxing and reading
- Spending quality time with my husband, dogs and cats
- Practiced Yoga to stretch my body
Be sure to take time and plan for your own self care, daily or weekly before you are forced to take action. When you are weak, your immune system can become compromised and those bugs can be very stubborn to get rid of if you are weak.
David Dubeau from Canadian Profits
We want to take this time to acknowledge David Dubeau from Canadian Profits for his monthly CD's.
His most recent CD had a great interview of Donald Wilson on it. Mr. Wilson specializes in private lending with the Dominion Grand Financial Group.
His talk on the CD was entitled “The Little Known World of Private Lending”. This inspired Al to contact Mr. Wilson. What great timing!
