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.
