I do hope you all enjoyed your Valentine’s Day this past Sunday. Whether you chose to spend it with a significant other or in the company of your family, I trust you felt the “love”. Know too that while it’s wonderful to “love” your job, it’s your children that love you back.


Never before have I seen a greater display of love than at the 2010 Winter Olympics opening ceremony where 82 nations came together at BC Palace in Vancouver. Tribute was paid to a fellow Olympian, Nodar Kumaritashvili, who died during a luge training crash hours earlier. My prayers go out to his family and to the millions of Olympians who risk so much for the love of the game.

Let’s give a shout out to the Canadian women's hockey team who set an Olympic record Saturday night with an 18-0 demolition. And, to the moms who compete every year in the Olympics giving new clarity to the phrase, “we can do it all.” Natalie Nicholson is one such mom who spends most of her time taking care of her daughter and as a nurse practitioner in Minnesota. Today, Nicholson, age 33, is an Olympic athlete for USA’s curling team. Nicholson joins two other moms in BC, making curling the most mom-friendly sport in the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Take a moment and watch these awe-inspiring athletes with your kids. It’s wonderful proof that they can achieve anything in life and that moms again, can work and play hard. If that’s not enough, watch Butterfly’s inspiring February video interviews with entrepreneurs: Rebecca Brooks who founded her own PR agency at age 25 and Karyn Parsons who played Hilary Banks on Fresh Prince of Bel Air and more recently founded non-profit, Sweet Blackberry.


Amen to that.
