    Default Good News

    Hello Family
    I want to share some good news with all of you. I have been told that I am not very good at promoting myself (that's why I hired a manager and a publicist -lol). But, I have been recently blessed and am so humbled and honored..so I wanted to share it with all of you.
    I live in an area of Southern California known as the High Desert. This is a desert area at an elevation of 4000 feet. The High Desert is comprised of approximately 81 cities/communities. Each year, residents of the High Desert are honored through the “Dreamers, Visionaries and Leaders” program. “The High Desert residents profiled in the ‘Dreamers, Visionaries and Leaders’ display are among the most inspirational role models we have in our communities,” said First District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt. “They have been leaders in their professional lives, and leaders in their commitment to public service. This year, I was chosen as one of the honorees for this distinction! I was honored in the company of such persons as humanitarians, philanthropists, doctors, judges, educators, and such.
    While I do volunteer much of my time to community organizations and I also provide my time (and voice) to many non-profit organizations, one of the most important reasons that I was nominated and honored was for WeHaveLupus. Apparently, what we do here has garnered the attention of some very important people and organizations and they felt that it was worthy of recognition. I was/am so honored and humbled by it all.
    The ceremony was held on the 11th..prior to that, the honorees did radio promotions, a video for local television and that is on display at the government center, a photo shoot for the articles in the newspapers and an interview for a magazine. It has been a whirlwind 2 weeks, but a blessed one. In my acceptance speech (which taught me why people at the Oscars get tongue tied..cuz I did), I had to acknowledge my family here..my global family who spends hours and hours tirelessly providing support, comfort, friendship, caring, and genuine concern for one another!
    I want to thank each and every one of you for making WHL a place that is recognized for its service to all persons suffering from Lupus and any other auto-immune disease. So, I accepted on behalf of all of you!
    THANK YOU

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    There is so much that I want to say but I am typing this on my phone with tears of joy running down my face. I am so happy that you have been honored for everything that you do but especially for what you have done for all of us. Tomorrow I will write my complete feelings but as for now I only say that it couldn't hVe happened to a better person!

    Like Mari, I need to wait before I give a proper response (brainfrog is thick right now). This is just amazing news!

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).
