Take the first step

Truly Epic Tip from take a step in the right direction quote

I absolutely love this quote by Naeem Callaway! “Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take a step.” Hope this quote and video blesses you in some way. Is there a step that you need to take in your life? Leave a comment below; I’d love to reply to it with a word of encouragement.

A mindful moment

Sitting here blogging and feeling thankful that I can work from home running my two businesses, volunteer with causes that are dear to my heart and greet my kids at the school bus everyday with a huge smile and wide open arms.  I’m taking a mindful moment and savouring the fact that I’m loving this life.

March Break Fun!

What a whirlwind of a week!  Our little family had a blast visiting the ROM, doing fun crafts and building Lego’s, visiting the library, baking desserts for the volunteers at Habitat for Humanity, meeting up with a cousin to go to the Ontario Science Centre and making care packages for teenaged girls in need at our church’s family night.  We packed a lot of stuff into our March Break staycation but had a blast doing each and every one of them!  I love that my kiddies are always up for an epic adventure!  How did you spend March Break?

Our church was recently blessed with a remarkable performance by the Watoto Children’s Choir. They have travelled internationally since 1994 as advocates for the estimated 50 million children in Africa, orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, war, poverty and disease. In their words, “their production of Oh What Love, presents the vitality of the new Africa. Its vibrance, urban sound and colour takes you on an emotional journey from utter despair to joyous celebration, as the children share their stories.” They are now touring in Canada and trust me, you don’t want to miss these kind, sweet, talented children give you a show you will never forget. Here’s a bit of the joy they bring with their Oh What Love performance, hope it brightens your day! -Photos courtesy of Rob Patterson.
