Tonight I will receive the Heart Hero Award from the American Heart Association. I’m deeply honored and very humbled. I didn’t set out to do anything award-worthy – I simply needed to give back for the chance I’d been given.
I am so grateful for the chance to watch my daughters grow, grow old with my husband, and grow a commitment to making a difference.
I love the idea of “moving the water” – of doing something small that sets something larger in motion. Like ripples on the water. I’m doing my small part to give back and it gives me joy to know that it makes a difference.
What small things are you doing to make a difference? Find some way to reach out and help – that’s a great gift to yourself and others.
