Although she longs to keep her promise to Connor, Thursday's feelings for Mark force her to consider the nature of promises and even, in the end, the nature of love itself.

President Joe Biden tells the story of his extraordinary life and career prior to his emergence as Barack Obama's beloved, influential vice president. 'I remain captivated by the possibilities of politics and public service. In fact, I believe that my chosen profession is a noble calling.' - Joe Biden Joe Biden has both witnessed and participated in a momentous epoch of American history. In Promises to Keep, he reveals what these experiences taught him about himself, his colleagues, and the institutions of government. With his customary honesty and wit, Biden movingly and eloquently recounts growing up in a staunchly Catholic multigenerational household in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware; overcoming personal tragedy, life-threatening illness, and career setbacks; his relationships with presidents, world leaders, and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle; and his leadership of powerful Senate committees. Through these and other recollections, Biden shows us how the guiding principles he learned early in life -- to work to make people's lives better; to honour family and faith; to value persistence, candour, and honesty -- are the foundation on which he has based his life's work as husband, father, and public servant. Promises to Keepis an intimate series of reflections from a politician who surmounted numerous challenges to become one of America's most effective leaders and who refuses to be cynical about politics. It is also a stirring testament to the promise of the United States.

She had no memory of seeing heaven or the white light so many talked about during their life after death experience. But something still hung in the back of her mind, a man’s face, she couldn't see him clearly but she could feel his presence. Maybe it had just been the medic’s faces hovering over her while trying to revive her; she really didn't want to think any more about it, it was too painful. A soft and gentle kiss awoke her; she turned as though to snuggle in closer to his embrace. Stretching her arm across the bed to find the other side empty Beth awoke with a bead of sweat covering her brow…the same dream and feeling of loss had been assaulting her nights and effecting her days for weeks now. She could never see his face entirely, just glimpses of his supple lips and dark as midnight hair. How was he connected to her future or was it the past?
If he kissed her the way he wanted, she might never let him near her again. He couldn't keep his promise if she refused to see him.

People recognize post-partum blues as an expected element after giving birth. These anxious feelings are usually associated with hormonal changes and the slow adaptation to change. Unbeknownst to many, even adoptive parents experience the same things too, but are faced with even more difficulty, because of this unfamiliar occurrence that was, and is, not widely taught to soon-to-be adoptive parents. This is commonly called the Post-Adoption Depression Syndrome, (PADS). And this is the nightmare that changed my life forever. Before this, I had everything a woman could possibly wish for in her life. Due to suffering from PADS for the first time. I lost everything, including the most precious gift of all, my beautiful little Angel, Adam. I have spent years fighting Social Services, the Justice system and husband, with an unbelievably devastating outcome through lies, deceit, cover up, discrimination, and lack of understanding. I made a Promise to my son that I would never leave him and would always be there for him. Adam's fears came true as he had his mummy taken away from him for no known reason other than jealousy of the special and loving bond we shared, and resentment of my illness by his father. I will never give up fighting to have us reunited and to keep the Promise I made to him.

Brand success rests on three principles: 1) Provide a unique experience with products or services that enhance your customer's lives 2) Inspire employee partnership, passion, and support 3) Create a perception of exceptional value and distinctive benefits and deliver on your promise. Genuine Brands make a promise and keep it. This promise begins with a different mindset than business as usual.

The BrandPromise applies to every type of organization, from associations, philanthropic enterprises (charities and non-profits), and personal brands (celebrities, athletes and executives), to professional service firms (doctors), entrepreneurs, small businesses, and member-centric businesses (credit unions and co-ops). Knapp provides insights from a wide range of executives and leaders with in-depth analyses of many Genuine Brands, including Ketel One, Costco, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Destination Marketing Association International, SAFE Credit Union, Annika Sorenstam, Callison Architecture, RK Dixon, Bartell Hotels, and Tourism Vancouver.
