The Mid-Ohio Food Bank provides food to those in need, with the emphasis on children and the elderly. It was my honor to send to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank money collected that night, which I am proud to say was able to provide over $12,500.00 in groceries. This outstanding contribution was provided by 34 concerned and caring women. Women have the power to make a difference
Speaking of women........last night I was sitting in the Chicago airport chatting with 2 other women about the vulgarity, and horrible stories that appear every night on the eleven o'clock news. The discussion led to the senseless gun shootings that occur in Columbus, nightly, from which we segued to gun control. Our discussion questioned how the Congress could not pass legislation requiring back ground checks before purchasing a gun. If three women sitting in an airport get it, what is wrong with our government. When did we become so complacent, and afraid to speak up for what is right. How did we get to the point that the political arena is more concerned with re-election and saying "no" to the other side. What happened to representing the people, to doing what is right for the people.
On a lighter note, but also regarding women, is there anything better than girlfriends who really know you? My friends recently help me celebrate my Medicare birthday with a visit to the Topiary Park where we enjoyed wine and cheese, and then continued on to Lindey's for dinner, which is my favorite restaurant. "Best" girlfriends are like a four leaf clover, hard to find, but so lucky to have.
If you have never been to the Topiary Park, which is the only one of its kind in the world, make time for a visit....located at 480 E. Town St. The park is an interpretation of Georges Seurat's painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of La Grand Jatte.....there are 54 topiary people, eight boats, three dogs, a monkey, a cat and a real pond....the pond represents the River Seine.
I was privileged to have seen the original painting yesterday at the Art Institute of Chicago.
THERE ARE EXACTLY AS MANY SPECIAL OCCASIONS IN LIFE AS WE CHOOSE TO CELEBRATE..........MAKE EVERY DAY COUNT..........
