Greetings From the President
Happy New Year to Everyone!
The Irish are partly known for their magical way with words, so I thought I would start this message with a few New Year’s toasts:
Here's to the bright New Year
And a fond farewell to the old;
Here's to the things that are yet to come
And to the memories that we hold.
An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind always be at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
The New Year also reminds us to go back to the basics, eat right, exercise, spend less money and save more etc. I was reminded of the old Girl Scouts badge system. Making new friends was one of the first ones I earned when I was little. This can be a great reminder for us as EWI members.
- I encourage you to have another EWI member over and share with her your favorite activity or hobby.
- Help a fellow EWI member with their business by learning the best way they would like to be promoted or shared. Introduce them to a friend.
- Introduce a friend to EWI and bring them to a meeting.
- Be a friend to someone you don’t know well in our EWI group. You bring blessings and toasts to this fabulous chapter.
It would not be the special group it is without you. Cheers to Incredible Experiences this year!
With much Gratitude,
Thought for the month...
Good things come to people who wait, but better things come to those who go out and get them. ~Anonymous
