Convention Afterglow

I am basking in the afterglow of a wonderful convention. Hats off to the convention committee and many others for their tireless work to make it memorable and special. From Friday night's keynote, Ed Grisamore, to Dr. Beverly Helms' keynote at the luncheon, we were entertained and enlightened. Dr. Fowler's "Pearls of Wisdom" imparted special meaning at the banquet on Saturday night.

It took MANY people to make this convention an outstanding one. Workshop presenters, atendees, and all the many details that had to made for each session, each meal, and the incredibly moving Ceremony of Remembrance on Sunday morning.

I am humbled and honored at the the incredible dedication and love for our Society as shown by hours of tireless work to make "Macon Memories".

Macon Memories

In a few short days we will be gathering at the beautiful Macon Marriott Downtown. I am so excited about seeing my Psi State sisters and start our convention! I am anticipating a weekend filled with Macon Memories!  From the opening guest speaker Friday night, workshops on Saturday, our International President speaking at the Hat n' Glove Birthday Luncheon, a mini market to shop, a banquet to honor chapter presidents and install new state leadership, a tour of historic Macon, and a remembrance ceremony honoring our dear departed sisters, we will be "Macon Memories" indeed.

See you on April 5th to begin a weekend of delight.

Can't Stop a Galloping Horse?

   I once believed you can't stop a galloping horse. Those of us in the teaching field understand that we are the galloping horses, destined to long hours, over booked calendars, and infinite "to do" lists. Yep, that's me and it's probably you as well!

   Well, it's a myth. YOU are not in control as you think you are and a galloping horse can be stopped. As I recover from recent surgery, I am clearly reminded of this. I have temporarily left my post at school and have operated state DKG matters from my computer and phone, delegated visits, etc. I'd rather be a galloping horse and I am on my way.

  Each day I gather strength, rebuilding the stamina that I took for granted. Cards, phone calls, and prayers have been greatly appreciated. All is well as I ready for Executive Board in Macon on Feb. 23. The galloping horse will be back.
