Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Some Question!

What LEGACY do you want to create with your life? What is the central message of your gift to the world and EXACTLY HOW do you get that gift out of the idea stage and MANIFESTED in the actual world?

While you’re still alive.

If ever I was posed a question that made me take a few steps back, this was it. I was asked this question in the blog post Is It Time To Quit? Or, Is It Time To Begin? by Jennifer Boykin. Now there is a gal who took this question and answered it by developing her blog, Life After Tampons. The central message to her gift is stated in her tagline, Quit Bitching. Change Your Life. Kinda makes you wanna jump up and spring into action making changes you’ve been contemplating, but couldn’t find the energy to move on, huh? It makes me feel that way when I spend time on Jennifer’s page. And she certainly manifested it out there in the actual world. Her blog has a big following. Jennifer made a business out of life-coaching, speaking, writing the material for and teaching courses, and giving free webinars. She walks the walk and teaches others how to do it, too.

So. Now it’s my turn. What legacy do I want to create with my life? That’s quite a question in itself. I’d say I’d like to leave a lot of little footprints in the lives of the children I have the pleasure to teach. If, in the course of my teaching career, I inspire even one child to go out there and and become whatever they dream of being, I will have left my legacy by being the very best teacher I can be. Getting it out there, now that I’m retired, required a little ingenuity and reinvention. Through this blog and my iTeach site, I hope I can continue to help both children and adults to step out, try new things, and explore their dreams. Jennifer has been a great mentor and role model and I hope I can pass it on and do the same.

What about you? How would you answer:

What LEGACY do you want to create with your life? What is the central message of your gift to the world and EXACTLY HOW do you get that gift out of the idea stage and MANIFESTED in the actual world?

While you’re still alive.

And so, as another day goes by, every now and then it’s good to tackle the the big questions (and actually take the time to answer them), and …I have written.
