Final Farewell Blog Hop

I had the opportunity to take part in this Final Farewell blog hop and I just couldn't pass it up.  We were asked to share some memories of our time with The Angel Company.  How does one condense 12 years into one blog post?  It's not easy.  So, I went to my photo album and chose some photos that meant something to me for one reason or another.

First, though, I was asked to share a card to honor Mischelle Smith, the CEO of The Angel Company and our friend.
 This card is my way of saying that no matter the storms of life....God's hand will guide you.  I came across this website and thought it seemed so appropriate for this card.

Mischelle I loved my time with The Angel Company and will always remember my very first seminar.  It was even more memorable because my downline and I got into a car accident on the way and totaled her car.  I was in shock for most of that weekend but I still managed to have a wonderful time.  That was the last seminar that I drove to KC from Oregon.  After that I took the plane ;-) 

I remember throwing a wadded up napkin at Annette Brisse at the banquet, missing her and hitting you (never had much of an aim). Boy was I embarrassed.  But you took it in stride.

And the look on your face when I handed you one of my practical jokes....PRICELESS...thanks for putting up with my goofiness.

One night, at my last seminar I went to, you took the time to talk on the phone to one of my downline that had designed the cover of the catalog but  wasn't able to come to seminar.  She was so excited.  You had a long line of Angels waiting to visit with you but you took a few minutes to talk to her and that made a huge impression on me.

Thank you, Mischelle, for all the things you have done, over the years, for each one of us.  God WILL and IS blessing you!!!

Now, with all that said.... I have so many memories......and then scroll on down to the bottom to visit the other bloggers that are paying tribute!
