This was a different kind of year from the very beginning!
As a Master Guide, every spring I am so excited to see who my intern is going to be for the coming session. This year, I was assigned an intern in May and although we exchanged emails and a MarcoPolo or two during the summer, unfortunately she was unable to continue into the fall. At that point, I just thought I wouldn’t have an intern this year.
I was wrong! As usual, God in His infinite wisdom had a better plan, and shortly after the class started, I was blessed with Brenda, from the Canadalands (as my friend Pluto says!) – and these are actually HER members, I just had her back, guiding the guide, so to speak! I learned a lot from her – I think we made a great team 🙂 I’m so glad it worked out this way!
The class was more intimate this year and so Brenda and I both worked with a small group of heroes. Each and every one brought different gifts to the tribe and inspired us regularly. Here they are:
Brad was a constant encouragement to us. He was always finding new ways of encouraging us to keep going – keep doing the habits. My favorite was when he would sing his cards to us, “Do it now, do it now. I can be what I will to be!” Brad always brought a smile to the tribe!
Danny is our only Canadian member this year, and although he was a bit more quiet than others – probably because he was out camping – when he jumped on Marco Polo, his insights into the material were so wonderful!
Doug took a minute to warm up to using Marco Polo to communicate with the group, but after he got comfortable, was a great encourager! His gratitude about everything was contagious! He also showed us beautiful image of Pikes Peak! And sometimes not show it, because of the snow storms coming in!
Jon worked really hard on his DMP from the very beginning. I was so impressed with his stick-to-itiveness! (yep – it’s a word, I looked it up!) One of his dreams was a large shop on his property where he and his son work together on projects. I can’t think of a better way to spend time, than with those you love!
Noel is the reddest red in our tribe. I really appreciated the way he cut through extraneous nonsense and got straight to the point! Noel spent several weeks in Costa Rica this winter and we enjoyed him sharing his environment with us!
The winner of the “Best Smile” in the tribe goes to Robert. Whenever I see a notification of a new MP from Robert, I know that great smile is coming and his sharing was always special – and his recipe for his “Grand daughter’s Favorite Pasta” was tried and enjoyed by many of us!
Ruthellen is a Lifetime Member who decided to go through class again with a guide. I’m so glad she was a part of our tribe. She was a bit hesitant to jump in, but bravely shared her story, being vulnerable with us, and she found a group full of love. I’m so glad she journeyed with us this year!
Sharon is a constant encourager and was always so excited to share her insights with us as she learned more and more through the material and the habits. Sharon brought great light and love to the tribe, and it was a pleasure getting to know her this year.
Stacy lives in my second favorite state – and I met her in the class less than a month after I had been so close to where she was! But I’ll catch her next time! Stacy’s DMP is coming to fruition by sharing her artistic talent, love, and time with others. So happy for you, Stacy!
We had another tribe merge with ours for Zoom calls, and Marco Polos. We were very blessed to have these two join us in the journey:
Each time Scott shared his knowledge and insights with us, I was blown away! We were even blessed with his knowledge of Greek as he shared some language interpretation with us! I’m hoping to be able to share a cup of coffee when we travel to Tennessee later this summer!
Vince and I had been Facebook friends for a few years, and it was fun to have him join our tribe this session. I was able to put a personality with some fb posts, and of course, that is always better. Vince always had a positive word to say to all other tribe members. It’s just the way he is – and that’s a great way to be!
The growth was fabulous for each and every member that chose to finish! They heard the call of their hearts, and answered! They all found that:
Congratulations, all you great heroes! We are so proud of your accomplishments this year!
