Newsweek & Orlando

Here is the Newsweek article and the cover to the special section! It is out and about and most ppl who wanted to see it have so here it is! They did a really wonderful job writing the article as well... 
This past week was an incredible experience! The conference/banquet was wonderful and we spent many hours touring the Magic Kingdom of Disneyworld! The conference was for insurance agents who are really passionate about what they do and want to be inspired to be even better. Sunday night the Life Foundation put on this enormously amazing banquet where each of the four families featured in Newsweek shared their stories and each family and the amazing agent who helped bring relief in such "chaos" gave a short talk. It was very moving, and it was so good to be in the presence of others who have experienced the same thing as me...the death of a loved one. I hope I'll be able to stay in touch with each of them! (You can read their stories in Newsweek) Everyone I met who was apart of the Life Foundation was SO down to earth and friendly. It was such a great experience and I'm thankful I could be apart of it. 
Have I ever mentioned how great my Farmers agent, Jerry Braun is? I highly recommend him! He is so sincere, real and full of integrity, we have become friends throughout this past year and am so thankful to have him and his family in my life.  
In between events we got to tan by the pool, and we went to Disneyworld!! What a blessing to be able to do this, especially on the anniversary date.... I kept myself busy on the 15th, it was great to be surrounded by family and be in "the happiest place on earth" I'll post pictures later.... we just arrived home tonight and I'm so tired... I also have a blog in the works about the one year mark......

I know it doesn't come close to making up for it, but I'm so glad you are receiving these blessings.
