This Turn Around Tuesday is dedicated in loving memory to Gregory Cross. He is my friend in life and the thereafter.
“Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.”
– Helen Keller (1880-1968)
They say things happen in threes. They also say they are “waiting for the other shoe to drop.” That statement suggests that things happen in pairs. I am betting most of us have had times where things happen in bushels, tons, and in quantities measurable only by stars in the galaxy numbers. Two’s and three’s would be cake. We like cake.
Unfortunately, we don’t get to schedule strife, chaos, unforeseen or surprise. Those guys have already hacked into your datebook and can pencil themselves in whenever they want to. Sometimes they just effect your world at large. Other times it is just business. Occasionally, they get real personal. It gets to be a true test of character when they orchestrate the epic trifecta that encompasses all three and seems to last forever.
Today I want to encourage you to laugh, cry, sing, dance, run, sleep, shout. Do any of these expressives regardless of whether those around you feel it is “appropriate.” There is no doubt that sometimes it just feels like “too much.” But, as long as we are still breathing, there is still hope. I challenge you to take full advantage of that hope, turn your day around and take somebody with you. The best thing that can come out of a Tuesday is a better Wednesday.
6000 Women Hand Up
A Working Woman in Need (AWWIN) will be hosting the first Capital Campaign Kickoff for “The 6000 Woman Hand up Challenge” on next Friday, April 18 at the Coastal Georgia Center in room 115 at 6:00PM.
The kickoff is free and open to the public – men and women alike. There will be light refreshments and maybe a few surprises. Media partner, Skirt Magazine, is getting the word out and donor lists are getting ready to appear on the AWWIN website.
AWWIN is also gearing up for their Third Annual Father’s Day Golf Tournament presented by Skirt Magazine on June 13th. The tournament, along with “Savannah’s Top Ten Working Women of The Year” Awards Gala on September 12, is part of this year’s “Hand Up” Challenge.”
