First, I'd like to thank all of you who joined me Sunday! I really had fun! I loved that you made my 15 minutes turn into 45! Truly cyber-time is tricky and we need to be very careful, as we've said before, that we watch our time.
Second, I am so pleased with the love and laughter that each of you brings to this site. Peggy's and my mission statement for our business is the same one we have for our site. "Using humor, we are dedicated to helping people improve the quality of their homes. We know that the strength of the family has a profound effect upon the schools, the community, the workplace, the country and the world." This web site must be dedicated to improving the quality of our homes. Each of you are attracted to this site because of your sense of humor, your desire to express goodness, be organized and run happy homes.
Let's keep up the wonderful encouragement that you offer each other, and be open to all who have the same desire and dedication regarding their homes. We love how you have created a positive retreat for busy homemakers. This site is here to renew and refresh our spirits. It's a place that gives us hope and encourages us to stay on track. We also love that you request prayers, but let's remember that whatever ones spiritual journey happens to be, each is welcome here. Peggy and I honor and respect all religions. I recently heard a speaker say, "If all the great founders of religion sat at a conference table together, Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Mohammed and others, they would all agree with each other, it's the followers who argue and fight over what the founders meant."
This web-site is so much better than the old one. Molly has done a fantastic job. We are so thankful for her talent and enthusiasm. Thank you to all of you who are helping to make this a wonderful place to come.
On the way to a speech in Albany, Oregon last week (Albany is an hour and a half drive from Vancouver) Peggy and I were talking about the word "getting." People who are born organized don't have to "get" organized, they ARE organized. We love the thought of "getting" organized. It's so fun to "get" something. That's why you are so much fun to play with. You like the thought of "getting" organized. Some day when we can say we ARE organized, some of the challenge will be gone. Let's be happy today that we are "getting" organized. We have the tools, we have the time, we have the desire and we have SHEs all over the world to talk to.
Thank you, each and every one of you who are part of this joint venture.
