Catching UP

    As you've probably noticed, I've been remiss in updating this website!  At 65, I'm away from the house working and commuting to work more than I have ever been in my whole life ... a new and challenging experience for me.  As life is settling into a new routine, I'm picking up the pieces of my volunteer work, so you should notice more regular updates here.
    Working at Wal-Mart as a cashier has brought me into contact with people I (and probably you) have never met before, and I am loving this enriching experience.  Wal-Mart is now headed again by people who have come up through it's ranks, and I'm seeing the influence Sam Walton had on them in terms of putting people first - both customers and employees.  You will notice some of these changes in the stores, and others will only be seen 'behind the scene' by employees, but believe me they are there and real, if still a bit rough around the edges as the whole corporation culture again changes.  It is a very hopeful place to be these days, and I hope you will support these changes as I will.
    A blessed Lent to each of you,
