I had such a great time at the TAC Seminar. I got to see friends I have made in past years and met plenty of new friends. It was so good to put faces with names from the past year.
I had to share this picture. A few of us were sitting outside looking at the river and enjoying the weather one evening and I just happened to look up into the sky. This is what I saw. Isn't it awesome? There were Angel Wings right above us. Of course I had to run into the lobby of the hotel and tell everyone to come look. It was just like it was meant to be for us.

The Make & Takes and Classes were great. They were all put on by the TAC staff. I just have to give kudo's to them. They did a fantastic job.

Our new catalog is now in effect. It is wonderful. If you click on the catalog it will take you to my website where you can order at your convenience. If you happen to do that...thanks in advance. If you don't want to order but ponder through the catalog please feel free to do that also.

I do have to toot my own horn here. I won The Angel Award at the banquet on Saturday night. I would post a picture of me in my crown but I don't have a good one so if anyone was there and got a good picture please send it to me. The Angel Award is an award that is done by your peers nominating you. I think it is one of the best awards as it shows how much you have thouched the hearts of your fellow demonstrators. I am so blessed and to be able to win this award. I want to take the time to Thank everyone that sent in a letter about me. You are truly awesome angels.
I will post a picture when I get one.

I also had a wonderful friend send me flowers and fruit to share with my roommates for the weekend. Aren't they beautiful? I carried them back home with me on the airplane and they survived.
I also have to say that I am feeling really good right now. It has been 2 1/2 weeks since my last chemo appt. I start the new chemo this Friday. They say it is not as bad as what I just finished. Let's all hope and pray they are right.
I plan on trying to be more creative and sharing if this is the case. I am also wanting to start some classes back up if I can. I am so ready to get things rolling again.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking in. It means so much to me to have all of you stop in and see what is going on. Have a great moment, day, week or whatever.
