ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

GRATITUDE! Attitude of Gratitude, as the Motivational speakers would say.

At Christmas my daughter-in-law, Joanna gave me a 5-minute Journal. Each day in the journal you start with writing down three things that you are grateful for.  There have been days in the last six months that it was hard to come up with three.  But, we all have so much to be grateful for; even in these unpredictable times.

These are just a few things that we can all be grateful for: the beautiful summer and now fall we are enjoying; family and friends; our pets; modern technologies that make our life easier; the changing of the seasons; we live in Canada!

For me, when things are not so good, the excitement of my dog, Maggie when she sees me makes me feel so grateful. 

Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy Autumn.

 

HOW THINGS HAVE CHANGED

In the last month we have watched as a woman joined Joe Biden as his running mate in the US presidential race. Plus, here in Canada a woman became the first Federal Finance Minister in history.

When I hear the great accomplishments of these women I think of my first position as a bank manager in Pickering.  I was doing a loan application for a very accomplished woman to buy a car.  The application was submitted to credit department but it was returned because they wanted her husband to co-sign on the loan.  WHAT!!! This client made more money than her husband, could carry the loan by herself, had assets of her own, plus the car was for her! (I get worked up just writing this) I was not going to let this one go.  With many back and forth conversations with credit department, speaking to the head of the department and even getting my regional manager involved the deal got approved without the husband’s signature.  This doesn’t seem so long ago but it just shows how things have changed.

Let’s celebrate how things have changed by taking care of ourselves first. Come and take advantage of the Special for our new amazing Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid Facial. 

PS – I have always purchased my own cars with a few funny stories to be told on another day.

CANADA UNITED 2020

The summer of 2020 is a summer we will never forget.  We will forever measure experiences against this time.  You will be saying things like “I remember the time I stood in line for 3 hours for a roll of toilet paper”.

We are now in Phase 3 and open for all our services.  Thank you to everyone who have booked in for services. We really appreciate your support.

Support is what small businesses need to recover from this set back. 

My favourite post on Facebook was a picture of a handmade sign in front of a small business that said “Remember when we supported your kid’s sports teams, school fun fairs plus your Church Bazars and fundraisers with donations?  Now I need your support.”

RBC and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce plus other Canadian companies have joined together to help Canadian Small Businesses called “Canada United”.

 I am proud to support @GoCanadaUnited and their initiative to help local businesses. Visit GoCanadaUnited.ca for more information and show local some love. #CanadaUnited

From Canada United:

Give local businesses your business today, or join us August 28, 29 and 30 for a national Canada United Weekend. We want the country to come out and get inside local shops to help them recover and kickstart our economy.

Thank you for your support.

Sherry Robinson

CLOSED MARCH 17TH – APRIL 8TH

As I write this Blog, we are closing down the Spa for two weeks to do our part to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. It is a very unprecedented times. UPDATE – we have just been informed that we are a non-essential service and now will be closed until April 8th.

Everyone has been touched by this Pandemic, parents with children off school and no day care, workers that are unable to work and worried about their income, Big Businesses, and Small Businesses.

As a Small Business owner, I have been through an ice storm at my busiest time of year, Christmas, a fire that shut us down for 4 days, a horrific tragedy that rocked our world to the core.

My fears have always been for the health and well-being of our clients and staff. But this is bigger than just us and we have to look at the big picture. We have to do what’s best for everyone.

We will survive this; we will stop this virus but it will take all of us to do it.  Be SAFE.

MARCH BREAK TIME AGAIN

It is March Break time again! Since I have always had teachers in our family, March Break has always been a time for family vacations. Most expensive time to go away, which I remind my teachers in the family.

Being with family is such a gift. It’s not as much of what we do but that we are together. The tropical vacations are nice but this year I am considering going way outside the box and go ice fishing with my family. I’ll let you know how that works out.

The Staycation is still very popular with everyone and Spa Sedona is always here to create that time away for you.

Please remember to join us March 14th to Donate to Horizon House on behalf of our Krissy.

 

 

 

ALL TYPES OF LOVE FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

When making up the packages for Valentine’s Day month, the one Package was the Romance Package. The more I thought about it the more I thought that this package would appeal to a limited number of our clients. Romance meant it was for a romantic involved couple. But there are more types of love than romantic. There is love for a best friend, a sister or brother, daughter or son. Or it could be someone that you just love being together with, a neighbour, a sorority sister, co-worker, another parent, member of your church or a friend.

So we are celebrating at Spa Sedona the Month of LOVE. Our hope for you this February is that your life is blessed with all types of LOVE. And don’t forget LOVE for yourself.

Happy Valentine’s Day

PS – I changed it to the “TOGETHER PACKAGE”.

This is me and my son Jeff.
