There is not much more that is lovelier than April!  One of my favourite times of the year. It feels like life is starting again with new potential and new possibilities.

The beautiful spring came and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.            Harriet Ann Jacobs

It is hard to believe how much of this year that has gone by already!!  This week has been unexpectedly amazing.  A major goal has been accomplished , and some important life lessons have really hit home.  I have always felt that my life’s calling has been to work hard, but I’ve also come to the conclusion this week that it is okay to give myself a break sometimes too.

I have always had difficulty accepting the person that I am.  So many flaws, deficiencies, and shortcomings.  Sometimes it is hard to even look myself in the mirror…  I think this is something that I will always struggle with, but this week I have slowly started to realize that I just need to stop focusing on myself.  I have always felt better about myself when I am serving others, and gratefully this is something that I get to do everyday.  Work has been so busy lately and I am blessed to work with so many wonderful people on a regular basis.

It would have been my cousin Gerry’s birthday this week.  He has been one of my heroes, and even though it has been over 10 years since he and Brian were lost in Russia, I think of them both often.  They are the kind of people that I wish I could be more like.

Can’t wait for the adventures of the next few months!
