Just dropping a few lines to let everyone know that I am doing great! I took my lunch early on Wednesday, February 20 and watched the start of the 3rd leg of the Amgen Tour of California . It is hard to believe that the 3rd leg of this race started in Modesto!!!
The weather was beautiful and I had such an amazing time watching. I can still feel the woosh as the riders rode right past me. I could have given them all high 5’s that is how close they were! These riders are inspiring. To think how in shape they have to be, how they work in teams and their dedication to what they love! They even get PAID to race. That’s the part I think is cool. I wish I could find my life’s passion and get paid for doing it. Humm, must start thinking about how to get paid for my passion.
I am off tomorrow, Sunday February 24, to a Deployment Ceremony for 130 California National Guardsmen that are leaving for Afghanistan. We, the Modesto/Central Valley Blue Star Mothers & Fathers, have over 180 hand held flags to pass out to these soldiers and their families. For those wondering who these mothers are go to our website Modesto/Central Valley Blue Star Mothers . I am the co founder and the President of our local Chapter. My oldest boy, my soldier and my hero served in Iraq for 14 months. He has shown me how to be a warrior, and to never, never give up.
Just love those serving and those that have served! Thank you!
