When I was young

When I was young I had many dreams, but one of my dreams was about perfection, imagination, and realization. And because it was my dream, I knew it would inevitably come true. And every manifestation would be exactly as it should be. Every detail part of the plan. Every grain of sand, chiseled long in advance. Nothing would be left to chance, not one second could ever go astray, and not one chuckle, laugh, or tear hadn't been thought of before

So when I realize the degree of attention that was given, and I weigh that each blade of grass was considered, there's only one possible explanation for the image that has become my own.

Today, I am exactly who I most wanted to be. What is your dream?

Contrary to popular thinking

Contrary to popular thinking being worthy isn't something you earn, it's something you recognize.

And once you do, you won't be able to think, speak, or behave in any other way than as if what you most wanted was meant to be.

You were born worthy

Mid August, think of supporting your Food Bank

I am a big supporter of our local food bank and I know that as summer heats up, the food bank in my community and I suspect in your community is running low. I talked to our local food bank director and was told that right now supplies from the winter months are now so depleted that the number of grocery items in small, medium and large hampers may have to be reduced.

In many communities across Canada, giving to the food bank is a tradition during the Christmas season but drops off when summer approaches. Our food bank is starting a summer food campaign — which begins Friday — and the hope is that people will remember to drop off an extra item at the grocery store or collect a box of food at their office, club or other location. In many community’s food banks will be starting their own food drives.
One of the goals of this summer campaign is to encourage people to choose healthier options to give to the food bank.
While the number of food bank users is holding steady, the cost of food and housing means there are always people who need a hand. I encourage you to be generous to the food bank before heading away for their holiday.
With a reminder and some encouragement, the community will come through to help our neighbours.

Here is a list of what is needed in our food bank, I suspect it is similar in your community.
      canned fruits and vegetables
      canned meats and fish
      cooking oil
      juice (no sugar added)
      lentils and beans (canned or dried)
      tomato sauce and paste
      pasta sauce
      whole grain pasta
      gluten-free items
      peanut butter
      Ensure or Glucerna (vanilla flavour)
•      diapers (sizes 4 and 5)
