Time to Give Back!

Happy Easter!!

This is a great day for me. So much has change in my life in the past 3 years and I have come through it a much happier and confident person. Easter 2003, I was in New Orleans with my mom. Trying to reconnect but I was struggling with so many other issues. We still had a great time! Easter 2004, I felt free and alive for the first time in so long with the filing for my divorce. Easter 2005, My girlfriend invited my boys and I to Marathon, Florida for the week. Her gift came at the perfect time for us, we needed to step away from all the drama and enjoy ourselves. I will forever be grateful to her.

Easter 2006--I am a very fortunate person. I have great family and friends, 2 beautiful and amazing boys, a home and all the things I need. I am happy....I really am happy. If you have ever lost happiness, you will understand how great I feel. This Easter I have been selected to participate in a Global Village Project with Habitat for Humanity in Anchorage, Alaska in June. I placed a link for more information on the trip. I am excited about being apart of this team set to help build 12 homes. Yeah, it is in Alaska, but it will involve about 80 hours of work in 12 days, sleeping at a local church, showering at local gyms, connecting with some great people, helping others who need it and the opportunity to learn and grow as a person. My goal is to raise an additional donation of $2500. If you would like to donate, please see the Habitat link. Any amount is apprieciated.

It is interesting as I look back over the past Easters. They seem to be times of change for me. Next summer, I would like to take along a local high school student with me on a Habitat project. In 10 years, I hope my boys will join me.

My business is about helping people......I cannot wait for this project to start!!

Do you have a plan to help others?
