Welcome to My World. . . At Least the Edge Of IT

January 20, 2011 - First post!

Welcome! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are here on purpose, but even if you arrived due to some less intentional click of fate, I'm happy you are here just the same. For the moment, we are here together. On the edge of my commitment to a year of documenting thoughts and observations about the "edges" that I see and experience.

It's not the first time that I've considered making this type of writing commitment, but it is the first time I've had such clarity for the purpose. I'm not quite sure what caused it or where it came from, but I'm confident that I'm on the right path.

The overall theme is prominently displayed in the heading of each page. I call it "Seeing The Edge." My focus, will be on identifying and sharing advantages that are often right before us, yet go unseen by many. I'll look for opportunities to discuss the competitive and winning edges in a variety of situations and venues. Whether it's business, athletics, community, or family will depend on what I'm exposed to and what I see.

You'll notice that I have identified themes across the top of the page that I will concentrate on during the year. In one of those themes I will focus on my year as President of the WOMMA Board of Directors. Contrast that with another page in which I'll spend time sharing insights and edges from my personal life. Not only is there a section in which I'll describe edges of my own, but I've also provided a place for you to share your edge as well. And I hope you will.

Thanks to the people who have encouraged me, helped me, and enlightened me in many ways.  And thanks to each of you for reading this far and beginning the journey with me. I hope you'll find my discoveries and thoughts both interesting and worthwhile enough to stop back frequently. If you do, please invite a friend to join us. 

By the way, there's a true story that inspired the title of this blog and the way I look at life. If you'ld like to read it, here's where you can find it.

    I don't think only a testimony would be enough to appreciate the work of Dr Odunga in my life. I would write his email here first which is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com         My name is Debra Fiona Walker and I have been helped indeed by Dr. Odunga in getting my ex husband back to me after leaving me for 4 years of divorce in marriage. I really want to write a long message of how we broke up, the trauma, the good times, the fighting and every other relationship problem. Not to forget was my issue of infertility which I never thought would be made possible to give birth. Like I said, a testimony would not cover up my appreciation of thanksgiving to the handwork of this man. Peter who was a flirt and a narcissist came back to me and begged and acted like a man. Did Dr. Odunga's spell really correct his head and his thinking faculty within 2 days of contacting him, I asked myself. That very night was awesome after 4 years. I got pregnant and waited until I delivered to give this testimony to the world but gave Dr. Odunga the good news of my pregnancy and the way my husband acted with me. I sincerely urge everyone to meet this Great Spell Caster known as Dr. Odunga to help you with effective spells and get that relationship worry over your shoulder. His WhatsApp mobile number is +2348167159012 you can also Email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com to reach him

    Great Mother is Real... I am Aisha Kun and i want to testify about Great Mother how she cured me of hiv aids. I was diagnosed of this disease some time ago and i was worried. when i was searching the internet looking for a cure, i came across some testimonies of Great Mother how she has helped a lot of people and i decided to contact her on her info and explained to her. She laughed and told me that she will help me and i was surprised. She sent me the cure and it was a spiritual holy oil and water which is more than a medicine. She directed me on how to take it and i did. I took the cure for 3 weeks and i went to the doctor for check up and to my greatest surprise the disease was no longer in my system.

    You are on the right path! Looking forward to continuing to learn from you this year! :)
