FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT:
Wow, what a great week! I’ve been so busy, how about you? Planning is in full swing for the upcoming Back to the Basics Workshops, the GFWC Convention, our own CFWC Executive Board Meeting in September, the Western States Region Meeting, and our October Area Meetings for members of the California Federation. When we come back to life, we do it BIG for sure!
I have been sorting through my closet for dry cleaning and ironing…I definitely don’t want to leave it to the last minutes. I have also sorted through make-up, especially anything that was opened and left unused for over a year…and have trashed those items. Packing ideas are already going into the Journal because for 3 of those meetings mentioned above, I will have about 2 days between travel…not even enough time for laundry. So planning ahead is essential.
What are you up to as far as planning is concerned? Many of our clubs and districts are opening up to summertime activities and in-person-meetings. Some of us are ready to get out again, some of us are not. I want to let you know that I firmly believe we take it at our own comfort level…if you are ready: great, if you are not ready: great. Do what is right for you!
It is so important that we live in the moment and make our choices based upon what is right for ourselves and our families. I refuse to let stress become a component of emerging into what will be for the Ament Family…just not going to happen.
So as you plan and get ready for whatever you are facing ahead remember that it is up to you. You choose your pace and comfort level, for no one else can choose for you.
But please, if you do choose to join us in Atlanta: I need a head count, so shoot me off a quick email and let me know you are coming and don’t pack away the Butterfly paraphernalia just yet: pack it to wear as a California Member!
I send each of you love as we get further into the heat of summer. Take care of yourselves and do let me know if any members or clubhouses suffer damage through the rages of Mother Nature.
