Yesterday I was teaching a memoir workshop for Inter Valley Health Plans here in La Quinta. The topic we tackled was writing about firsts. The first of anything in our lives is always thought-provoking. It can trigger a lot of memories when you think about the first time you learned how to ride a two-wheeler bike, or rollerskated backwards or for me when I bounced on my pogo stick one thousand bounces in a row!
This Friday I am having another graduation for my newest group of graduates. I am expecting nearly 50 in attendance for this special occasion. It brings me back to my first graduating class back nearly 3 years ago in May of 2009. The women pictured to the right are my first class that I nickamed the feral cats. This group of 5 women bonded together and have been my number one supporters as I have been building my business.
I love remembering sitting in our classes and listening to their stories, seeing their tears and feeling the warmth of the love of this amazing group of women.
Since their graduation I have graduated a number of students from my Legacy program. I am thrilled that this Friday, I have managed to corral all my ferals back to coming to this very special graduation! If you have not signed up for this luncheon, let me know today by 3 pm as it will be fantastic!
