This week my baby sister Sonna passed away from breast cancer. Baby sisters never get to be grown up no matter how old. She had been sick for three years, always optimistic, always ready to climb the next hill. Unfortunately she was told several days before she died there were no more hills to climb and the fight was over.

I recently found out it was better to eat the French fries at McDonalds for 230 calories and 11 grams of fat than eat a chicken crisp sandwich for 360 calories with 28 grams of fat. Who would have guessed?
Is this a good thing?
I just returned from a trip to Orlando, FL and worked with several different groups of people. Business owner Randy Stinson of Stinson Carpets invited me as a speaker for the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce and to meet with a group of flooring retailers to discuss business concerns. Stinson Carpets, a leader in the flooring industry, was given the honor of Mohawk ColorCenter Dealer of the year for the Florida Region. Randy Stinson, CFE of Stinson Carpets, is community minded and a team player. He hosted the discussion group at his store and invited other regional Color Center Dealers as well as the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce. In addition Stinson’s has the privilege to host the Chick-fil-A Leadercast here in the area on May 7 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The Leadercast is about experiencing authentic leadership, learning from the world’s best leaders, awakening your passion to influence and aspiring to impact lives.
