Just as the bee creates honey from the same flower that the spider saps its poison, we get to choose what we get out of life based on our attitude.

Just attended the annual event of Silicon Valley Prayer Breakfast with 900 guests. It was a blessing to listen to great speakers including Ron Johnson. He is the former senior executive at Apple who introduced the Apple stores which by far generates more money per square foot than any other retail store including my favorite, Tiffany's, Inc. :-(.

The story is that St. Patrick brought Christianity to Ireland and was able to evangelize the people of Ireland. However, what I don't understand is, how is it that they celebrate such a spiritual holiday with green beer? Well, as someone who has traveled in Ireland, I can tell you that is how the Irish celebrate anything. They are beautiful people that love to have a lot of fun :-).

I agree, however, with the help of my book, you can be close to perfection. May I suggest my book, Fabulous for Less? You can get your autographed copy at http://www.sehinbelew.com
Darling, did you know that I
I dream about you
Waiting for the look in your eyes
When we meet for the first time
And darling, did you know that
I pray about you
Praying that you will hold on
Keep your loving eyes only for me
'Cause I am waiting for
Praying for you, darling
Wait for me too
Wait for me as I wait for you
~~Rebecca St. James
You make me feel so young
You make me feel like spring has sprung
Every time I see you grin
Such a happy individual
The moment that you speak
I want to run and play hide and seek
I wanna go and bounce the moon
Just like a toy balloon
