Workshops filling and Sandy is gone!
With Hurricane Sandy behind us, it's now time for the clean-up. While we only lost power for 12 hours and sustained no damage to home or car, the fate of others has been weighing heavily on my mind. Along with this natural disaster, I've had friends who've lost people close to them, which in turn has reminded me of my own losses. My Dad Oct. 19, 1986 and my sister in 2003 (her birthday was Oct. 5th). Daddy would have been right there to help others if a disaster were to occur. Just plenty of reminders to hold those who mean the most to you close and let them know how much you care. Reach out and donate to the American Red Cross or other charities helping those who have been displaced. Here's just one company, Amway, who will match our donations up to $100,000.
Which brings up the reason for this post I really haven't forgotten about you all, really! Just been busy behind the scenes in pulling things together and working on some of my own work. Registrations have been opened for a few months and the response has been great. For those who have not yet sent in their registrations, below is an update on where we stand on spots available in workshops.
