Letter to My Daughter

By - Last updated: Friday, July 20, 2012

I’m a wife, mother, family member, friend, writer and career woman. I am blessed to have a daughter and son and son-in-law. When Janet Graham and I first met, we conceived the idea of writing a series of letters to my daughter that would distill some of the lessons I’ve learned juggling career and family. While these letters are addressed to Lesley, they are also sent with love to Brian and Greg. July 3, 2012 Dear Lesley, It has been a long time since I wrote one of these letters but as we both know, life has a habit of getting chaotic from time to time. Today I’ve found some peace and quiet, an ideal combination, and I thought you might be interested ...

This week I received the email below from a friend. I thought I would share it with you and I hope you enjoy it!   Please take a look at an article my friend Cheryl's daughter wrote in honour of her Mom for Mother's Day.  She's just finished her undergrad at NYU and she's making a go of it in the "Big Apple".  She's currently working for the Huffington Post, responsible for social media.  Michelle is an amazing young woman and I'm looking forward to reading more about her in the years to come... I'm almost as proud of her as her Mom is!!! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michelle-persad/mother-daughter-she-doesnt-look-like-me_b_1424279.html   Thanks Ethel!! xo

Several articles and announcements in the press recently have inspired me and I thought I would share them with you, just in case you had missed them or hadn't found the time to read them.   The first was published in the ROB magazine on March 29. It tells the story of the wonderful Jane Rowe.  In their words: "The mystery woman behind the blockbuster MLSE deal.  Jane Rowe has mastered Bay Street on her own terms."  Jane is a fabulous success and a fantastic role model and I wanted to be certain to share this wonderful piece with you.
