What a Beautiful Gift!

I didn’t expect a Mother’s  Day present,  I was so happy to talk to my very busy, hard-working daughter on our special day- she’s a Mom herself.


… but when I ripped open the box – look what I found! A colorful, beautiful “happy birds” cold bag , monogrammed with Greeneroo and a beautiful stripped blanket – matching colors with a waterproof base. Wonderful, functional and so sweet of her and her family  to think of me! So Happy, So Blessed!

As a working Mom, there were times, I was giving up being with my family, but it meant that we had health insurance, a better life, vacations and more. There were many times I wanted to be with them and a project at work took that time. Now my kids are working hard and striving for their own great success. You cannot go backwards, you can just do your best everyday. The work-life balance is not easy, but the incredible support of my family made it possible for me to go to work. It is wonderful to be acknowledged.

“Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.” — Brian Tracy

You gain strength, experience and confidence by every experience where you really stop to look fear in the face…You must do the thing you cannot do.  — Eleanor Roosevelt 

To my family: YOU are the best part of my life ….. everyday. No other accomplishment comes close. Even in hard times. Even with distance. You fill my heart.  Love, Mom.



wordpress wordcampWordPress is blogging software, and if you have to speak up…. I recommend this tool. It is easy, elegant and well-supported.

Many times a year, there are training and learning events, they seem a bit like a party, and they ARE fun! The goal is to get the community together and answer all the questions and showcase the innovations. Of course, socializing and making friends is an important component. The seminars are called WordCamps – and when you are part of this community, you can even help set up the seminars in your city. These WordCamps are international. I was looking for the closest one, and it is in Phoenix. The cost is always low, this one is $20 /day, $50 / 3 days and the community is incredible.

There are many ways to get involved, check out volunteer jobs.

WordCamp PHX 2013 Jan. 18-20, 2013 • Downtown Chandler, AZ


One of the great things about WordCamp and the WordPress community is the strong commitment of the WordPress volunteers.  WordCamp Phoenix would not happen without the dedicated hard work of our many volunteers.

WordCamp Phoenix is about giving back to the community, and that goal can only be reached with a strong team. The support of our volunteers is appreciated not only by us, but by the entire WordPress community.
