MS MICHIGAN SENIOR AMERICA 2019,
CONGRATULATIONS to CATHY ROE, Ms Michigan Senior America 2019, and Special Thanks to the terrific Michigan team for a wonderful State Queen!
The bio below will tell you where I have been, but I want to preface it with where I plan on going; in to the bushel removal business.
Haven't we all hoped for a dream that will carry a profound message and guide us? That happened to me. From a deep sleep I heard a voice clearly say "Stay still. The light will come to you."
And the light did come to me. It came in the way of healers, family, teachers, friends.
I realize that I am also the light. And so are you.
Life can heave so much upon us that sometimes our light gets hidden under the bushel. The years may throw harsh blows, but our light is still there. It is never too late for us. We can find healing, inspiration and happiness. The first step, is to believe it; to imagine it still there shining.
People everywhere are standing still and waiting for the light of friendship, healing care and love. I hope that my yoga classes, healthy lifestyle programs, volunteer work and writings will find their way to uplifting those spirits and help to eradicate some of those the light dimming bushels.
Below are my career highlights, but know that it is the times of standing still and letting the light come to me that made me who I am today. And it's the times that I show up in someone's life who needs help that will shape me in to who I become tomorrow."
