Success for all, whatever it takes!
Issue 10: October 12-16, 2015
I am also grateful for the perfect weekend that graced us this past weekend...other than the total collapse of Kansas City professional sports teams. The fall weather was perfect for playing in the yard, trips to the pumpkin patch, cider mill, outdoor weddings, sports and other weekend activities. I hope that each of you were able to find some time to relax, unwind, and rejuvenate for the week ahead.
And remember, just as Misty's photo on our group Facebook says, "...You can handle whatever this week throws at you." We can handle this because we are a great team! We are great because we know why we exist, we create spaces for learning, we have healthy conflict, we trust each other, and we all help steer this ship at some time or another (thanks for the great article, Amy Weber).
I wish each of you a blessed week, and I hope that you go through it knowing that I am here to help with whatever you need (within reason). Just ask!
