Happy Monday Ladies,
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. Mine was absolutely AMAZING! On Saturday, I had the opportunity to participate in an event that is so near and dear to my heart called Beat The Beates! It is a non-profit organization that was formed by the friend of an individual who died from Type 1 Diabetes. Since I am a fellow Diabetic Warrior (I’m actually pre-diabetic now), I always love to network and educate this community. One of the highlights of the day was when I had the opportunity to meet a star! I met our very own Women Supporting Women founder, Shameeka’s granddaughter, Gigi! What a beautiful little soul! Once I told her I knew her grandmother and her Dad said it was ok for her to come to me, she ran over and gave me the biggest hug! A beautiful young Queen in the making. That evening, I went to my 30th High School reunion. Needless to say, I had a blast!!!! I am so blessed to still be here to enjoy it!
Last week, we were introduced to the first part of the”Did You Know” series. I hope you had the opportunity to answer the questions I posted last week.
