ISSUE | FEBRUARY 2022
Legacy of Love
I'll admit that part of me hesitated to publish this issue with a dedicated legacy focus. Talking about legacy requires us to consider our own mortality, our inevitable passing from this planet. This might not be a top-of-the-list topic you'd choose to indulge in. However, when I see a pattern emerging from stories coming across my desk, I listen. I take these stories as an indication of how we might be feeling as a community.
Many have lost loved ones over the past two years. And sharing stories is a way for us to remember and honour our loved ones. We also draw comfort from one another, knowing we are not alone. Plus, these heart-felt stories are beautiful and inspire us to live better lives.
As you read, I hope for you, these 3 things ...
#1 That you acknowledge the power you have to deeply touch the life of another human being - in life and long after your life on earth is made complete.
#2 That you are inspired to tell your loved ones how you feel about them while they are still with you.
#3 That you tell and share your own story as a priceless legacy gift for your family, friends, and others who choose to read your story.
Wishing you a love filled February 2022.
