We are wise to cultivate the tree which bears fruit in our soul.

The greatest gift you will ever have is your life,
and the second greatest gift-which you give
yourself-is courage to live it to the fullest. Time
goes by quickly, and you cannot take it for granted.
Appreciate how far you have come, and give yourself
the gift of discovering how far you can yet go.
-Sonya Friedman, submitted by Pat J. Wauwatosa, WI

Sorry for no Ripples last week! The transition to the new site is proving much more challenging than we anticipated! But we are back to “bearing fruit” this week and will hopefully resume our regular Monday Morning splash for the remainder of the year (again, Hopefully!!)
About 1,000 of you have visited our new website, and over 100 of you have posted a message in the community section–and it ROCKS! Even two store orders came in (Marijane and a few of our “Super Shoppers” have chosen a bounty of new treats to put in our new, easy-to-use online store!)….THANKS to all of you for helping us with this transformation!
It has been a CRAZY two weeks here at the Ripples Ranch, including two quick trips to Chicago, once to hang out with the folks at Royal Office Products and then this weekend for the 2004 NODA (National Orientation Directors Association) Conference. We owe the NODA folks a super big hello and thanks, as they purchased over $800 worth of Ripply Treats, with all of that money going toward our new website!
New Next Week: We are going to attempt a little color for Ripples….and a cool new look! If your issue next week arrives and looks really weird (extra lines of code, etc.) please let us know! Hopefully it will go smoothly!
Peace to you,
