Dear Red Cross Readers,

I attended an American Red Cross Luncheon at the New Orleans Marriott Hotel on Canal Street. It was titled “The Power of Women.” It honored extraordinary community leaders who made a significant contribution to the Hurricane Katrina effort. So many women were of service in the rebuilding efforts. It was a day to honor them.

I showed up eager and expecting great things. I was in good vibration, trusting and believing for something amazing to happen. And it did.

I walked into a meet and greet room, and I was delighted to find Hoda Kotb from The Today Show. She was the keynote speaker and did an outstanding job, full of personality and love.

It was a fun day full of wonder and opportunities. We just need to keep our hearts open to receive.
