I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Back from vacation

on September 2, 2014

Had a great vacation.   Missed my computer and blogging but I really needed a break.  My vacation was both exciting and relaxing.  Going to the Joyce Meyer Conference in Toronto was exciting and going to the Sandbanks Provincial Park for a family camping adventure was relaxing.

The Joyce Meyer conference was awesome.  The music rocked and Joyce gave some really inspiring messages.  We got great seats for all 3 days but I can’t believe that I got front row seats for the Friday morning event.  My friends and I sat part way up the side and then an usher asked if we wanted to sit right on the floor up front where most of the seats are reserved for special guests.   Of course we did and we settled into some chairs at the end of the second row.  Then a short while later, they told us to move right along to the middle chairs.  I ended up sitting in the second row behind an empty seat directly in front of Joyce Meyer and a few seats down from her husband, Dave Meyer.   I’m anxious to see the conference when they show it on TV in about 4-6 months!

Camping was fun.  The Sandbanks is an awesome campground.  It is one of the largest and most beautiful beaches in Ontario and also has the world’s largest fresh water sand bar and dune system.  When our children were young, we used to live in Trenton which is less than an hour from the Sandbanks and we camped there often until we moved to Niagara Canada.   It wasn’t until 2 years ago that we returned to the campground with our children, their husbands and our grandson.  We all had such great fun that we returned again this year and plan on doing so again.  The days were spent boating, fishing, swimming, biking and relaxing.   I would highly recommend this campground to anyone who enjoys camping.  Here is a beautiful picture of the beach at twilight that was taken by my son-in-law.
