Service Above Self

I was honored beyond my wildest dreams last night by the Russian River Rotary Club for work giving back to my community.  It was a surprise orchestrated by my family and it worked!  I was awestruck!  I was humbled by the attention and words spoken by friends and family.  It is a gift… an amazing gift … to hear people say nice things about you … and it’s not even your funeral!!!!  I’ve always said that I want my funeral BEFORE I die so I can hear what people say about me!  I don’t think we are supposed to want that, but I do!!  It is also the best party of your life and you can’t be there!  Well, hopefully, one has led a life that makes people want to say good things about you!  That is certainly something to think about.

Anyway…. it is an award that I share with so many people that I have worked/volunteered with for the past 30 years.  I am indeed a lucky woman.

10 lbs Potatoes

Spent the morning making my infamous mashed potatoes for Give Back Tuesday at the Rainbow Bar in Guerneville.  Every Tuesday this wonderful bar lets organizations come in with foods they have prepared and a pot luck dinner is sold to all who come for a measly $5.00!!!  AND they give 10% of the bar tab back to the organization.

My potatoes are for the Russian River Jewish Community and trust me, the food from this group is always interesting. (This picture is not really our group…;-)
