Stockholm–My mother, Shirley Ann Thompson passed in 2013.  I was born Elizabeth Ann Thompson.  She taught me many lessons that I am passing on to my teens and through Arise 2.0.

Here’s one I didn’t understand at first, but now I do.  My mother said to always include your name, address and phone number on a piece of paper inside your coat pocket.

Someone accidentally took my jacket from a Norwegian Air flight and I left my business card in a pocket and they contacted me and I retrieved the jacket.

Mama was right.

Peace, love, gratitude compassion, and blessings.
