My 2 year old is enjoying rising at the crack of dawn these days and since I like to craft late at night, my eyes are burning! I may need to adjust my schedule. I loved the luncheon with Lisa See! She is a marvelous speaker and I highly recommend her. The event for AAUW was a huge success (my mother in law is a member and was #2 in putting this event together). The AAUW raises funds and gives scholarships to women and girls in the community. On Saturday they presented a scholarship to a teenage girl who won their essay contest. I wish you could have heard this high school senior read to the 300+ women in the ballroom, well, we were all moved to tears. May has been in the US for less than 2 years and has transferred from ESL classes to college prep classes and one AP class! She was living in a downtown shelter and taking the bus and trolley for 2 hours one way to get to her high school. She explained that she was living with a wonderful foster family now,but she did have parents back in China. I am not sure what her situation is, but I was moved and inspired and reminded once again what a blessed life that I live and to be humble and grateful for all that has been provided for me.
