Some Observations

This week I saw:
  • A mother holding her 4 month old daughter on the plane....a sweet girl who never once fussed.
  • A mother of a toddler in total meltdown mode - while the father stood by and did nothing - the mother was in tears trying to hold and calm her child - her frustration clearly evident.
  • A new Premier Design consultant writing thank you notes to customers
  • The magic of Disney through the eyes of child - my own. As I watched the parade and the fireworks, I found myself waiving at the characters and totally having fun and just living in the moment.
  • I saw the beauty of sea creatures up close - Killer Whales, Dolphins, Manatees, Baluga Whales, etc - and was mesmerized by how intelligent these amazing animals are.
  • I saw little children filled with anticipation of seeing their favorite Disney Characters.
  • I realized taking vacation is necessary and it's been over 10 years since we have taken a real vacation.
It was a busy work week at the conference. This conference is always physically tiring - the pace is non-stop, but I made a choice to open my mind to the possibility that I could have a good time at Disney. I let myself go and I just lived in the moment. A good bit of shopping helped as well - LOL....I think the staff at the Coach store may miss me after I leave Orlando!

I got a lot of yard work done on Sunday - my lack of yard work last year REALLY shows this year. I made my first trip ever to Meadow's Farms on Sunday and let me tell you.....I am in LOVE with that place!

Couple of pics from the week - My friend Candice and I on Saturday and then one of the two of us with Judy Harvell.

It's back to work in the office and the "normal" hectic pace there. Have a great week all!

Now I will start thinking about Disney again. I want to wait until the grand kids are a little older though. I love the pictures.

Much of that is the Magic of Disney. So much more than the actual place.

That photo waiting for the boat is my favorite of us.
