Fire, wind, record heat and a wedding. It has been a chaotic time for us over the past two weeks! I regularly write and speak about change and chaos in my Ezine and video blog, The Daily Muse. But, you know, it’s not the events themselves that are all that important; it’s how we react to them that helps us move into new space, new understanding and new directions.
One of my new directions may be toward Colorado rather than Dallas as I had planned this week. We may have to get to our house in Colorado Springs to pick up any pieces there. But it’s OK; the house is in good shape as far as we can tell. We are blessed with the winds of change blowing through our lives!
***eWomenNetwork: 12th Annual International Conference and Business Expo***
July 12 to 15, 2012 You’re invited to the largest 4-day Women’s Business Conference in North America! This has become an annual Must-Do event for me and I would love to share it with you.
Meet friends, meet new colleagues, associates and clients, attend great sessions with excellent content, share your gifts…
Imagine having access to thousands of businesswomen from all over North America who want to learn about you and what you have to offer! Through our exclusive “Accelerated Networking” process you’ll be overwhelmed by the volume of authentic connections and outpouring of support, opportunities and resources you will receive.
I hope to see you there! (Well, that might change! With Fire, weather and weddings I may have to forego this year’s event! But it’s a great event so get there if you can.)

***Waldo Canyon Fire***
Current Status: Our house is fine! Somehow it escaped the fire. Our entire block of homes inside the community of Longview at Mountain Shadows survived. A house across the street and four doors down was destroyed; the houses on either side of it damaged. A house on a court off our street was destroyed. Four houses in a row, behind us, destroyed!
And now we wait. The community mandatory evacuation has been lifted and the fire is 100% contained. We now need to learn when we’ll have the gas turned on again so we can visit the house and determine what we need to do next!
Meanwhile we are establishing a “fire recovery fund” through our non-profit church organization. This will be used to help us finalize our move of the organization to Maryland, help make room for a family to rent from us in Colorado while their home is restored and to especially help the firefighters and first-responders who did so much to save our home and the many surrounding it!
Prayers for all of those who have been displaced, their homes destroyed, are always welcome!
