Just visited the site and it looked FABULOUS! It's great seeing such a full room (of tables, that is), and the red satin draping and hats everywhere are so festive. The centerpieces are breathtaking. God, we have fantastic vendors we work with. Talked to one of my speakers and confirmed her seating at my table and then talked to the man who directs my boy singers about having someone videotaping parts of the program.
Then I visited Starbucks and got Charlie and me some sustenance for the primping part of the day. I told the wonderful women at the ballroom that I was heading home to take my 'pretty pill,' and they all wanted a taste of that.
So, I was going to do smooth hair under the fedora, but I decided to go all out and let it fluff. It will straighten out over the course of the evening anyway.
I know we're going to make BIG MONEY and have a fantastic time! I just feel it. The sun has come out, and the stars are aligned, so we've got most of the heavenly help we need -- and hopefully any other heavenly help will come through the intervention of the auction chairman, one of this world's most special women.
My stomach feels like it's an event day -- but it's wonderfully calming when that event involves alcohol!
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder, You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger, May you never take one single breath for granted, God forbid love ever leave you empty handed, I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean, Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens, Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance, and when you get the chance to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance!
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance, Never settle for the path of least resistance, Living might mean taking chances, but they're worth taking, Loving might be a mistake, but it's worth making, Don't let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter, When you come close to selling out, reconsider, Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance, And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance!
