Idle at Yes

"Idle at Yes." That's a quote from my brother's best friend, Mark Alessio, who died a year ago while travelling in Madagascar. He was the kind of person who lived life to the full, every day a new adventure. Last night my brother presented a memorial award in his name to a deserving basketball player at Queen's University. He and Mark had met on the squad years ago.
I like the quote, a great reminder that opportunities are offered every day. Sometimes we just need a reminder to say 'yes'.


  1. I love the quote. I think it is one that I would like to use. I tend to say yes to most requests. Do you always say YES?

  2. Hi Catherine,
    I met you at church yesterday. The rushed conversation in the busy isle at the PIER did not give me the opportunity to say that your story is truly an inspiration ot me. I have a blog also, but I must confess, writing is not my forte as it is yours. Perhaps one day I will have the chance to tell you why God placed the desire to begin a blog on my heart. Be blessed.
