What we have learned...
It has been two months.  Quarantine.  Social distancing.  Whatever we are calling it.  At the end of the day, this social experiment has not been easy for most of us.  What I have learned above all else through this time — reminded of, really — is to appreciate the small things.
“Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” (Denis Waitley)  Our lives are a collection of millions of little moments.  If you can appreciate those moments, you will find yourself far happier; you will find yourself living in those moments instead of waiting for something to come along to bring happiness to you.
I struggle to find happiness in the big things much less staying focused on finding happiness in the little things.  I have related to you all some of those struggles.
But this... Well, I like to joke that I am built for social distancing. I am not a “hugger”, at least not willingly. Please take no offense if you are.  It is not personal; I just am more comfortable keeping a safe distance even before it was public policy.
And being told that I have to stay home is a welcome relief from all the times I have been told I need to do different things that keep me away from home.
And something you probably don’t know about me:  I love to cook.  Staying home and preparing dinner for my family has been perhaps the best thing to come from all of this.
We Want to Hear About You!
We are looking for club members to do a classification talk.
What is that you ask?
A classification talk is your chance to tell members about yourself and your business.  It shouldn't be a big chore because you should already know all the answers :) How you share information about your profession is up to you!  Relax and enjoy your opportunity to educate your fellow Rotarians about who you are and your vocation.
If you are interested in speaking, contact Abby ( to schedule a time in our calendar.
