Where did September go? It was a busy month for me and if you were looking for the September newsletter in your inbox, you did not find it. I simply ran out of time. Here's my story....
Unfortunately, my mother landed in the hospital in late August prompting a more than 2 week stay in an acute rehab facility. At the same time, I was preparing for a 12 day vacation in Italy. The universe is always watching out for us and in this instance, it managed one of my biggest vacation concerns - I did not have to worry (as much) about my mother and father while I was in Italy. More than a month later, Mom is home, getting stronger and smiling. I recently posted a blog about Mom and the importance of Beauty Therapy
Italy was a wonderful vacation with 14 friends. Can you imagine coordinating 15 people for 12 days in a foreign country without travel professionals? We planned for more than a year and used our delegation skills so that everyone participated. It was a celebration trip for one of my dear friend's milestone birthdays! It was a great celebration and vacation with lots of friends, food and wine!. Here are a few photos:
Upon my return from Italy, my favorite volunteer event was happening - RUMMAGE! So I went from vacation mode to volunteer mode. The weather was beautiful in the Northeast until the actual sale, then it rained and was cold for most of the sale days. While the weather may have dampened our sales, it could not dampen our spirit. As Rummage ended for another year, my heart was full and I look forward to the Spring.
So, its been a bit busy here at Real Life Spark! Please forgive the absence of the September Newsletter and I hope you enjoy the change in format in this month's newsletter.
Wishing you peace, love and sparks, Deb
