Is This Just a Fairy Tale?

Long, long ago, in a land far away, there was a man and a woman-that would be Norm and me-who aspired to build a multi-level entrepreneurial empire of sorts, built around magnetic health products. We gathered people into our network, embracing every one. The group bonded over Executive Luncheons , training exercises, phone calls and demonstration events that all took place in the "executive suite" known as our combination living room/dining area!

The winds of change blew through all our lives. The company we all had praised for teaching us more than a college education might have disappointed us. People strayed from the group because of work schedules. Some of our people joined other companies. Some started their own businesses. We moved from the area.

You might expect that we would have closed the book on all those relationships. I am so happy to say that was not the case.

While we love every person in our circle, and still stay in touch with them, there is one woman who stands out from the others. She is the woman who always came to the 7 AM meetings on time, bearing freshly baked kolaches. She always brought a dish to share whenever we hosted an Executive Luncheon. She was fun to travel with. She always invited guests to our events and her guests were as friendly and as dear as she is. At the finish of any event I would bid the guests goodbye and turn to find this darling friend in the kitchen, engineering the clean up!

We share many things in common. We are close in age-she, too, is "33"-and we just CLICK. We have always found ways to celebrate her birthday with her. We call her frequently, just to get our "fix". She has a wonderful sense of humor, she is a devoted church member and her family means the world to her. This lady is an avid culinary artist, gardener and loves doing yard work. Whenever we get together we talk for hours and hours about health and healing.

She had another "33rd" birthday recently. It took her nearly 2 months to come and observe it but she showed up, knowing our guest room was reserved for her. She arrived in time to take in a Tea our church's Women's Fellowship hosted.

It won't surprise you, as it did not surprise me, to note that when the event had ended and people took their leave, there was Mildred, wiping tables and helping with clean up!

It should not surprise you, either, that everyone loves Mildred a special much!

We share one more thing: She followed us when we joined BioPro !
