I guess time will tell. This did cause me to realize just how little time I have left as Ms. Wheelchair Kansas. Ms. Wheelchair Kansas 2014 will be crowned on March 16. So, if you would like to schedule an event to have me come as Ms. Wheelchair Kansas, please let me know immediately. I do still have some room in my schedule in January and February. I want to get to as much of the state and see as many people as I can in the next 3 months.
For those of you who don't quite understand why cold would keep me away from an event, here's an excerpt from .If You're Not From the Prairie . . by David Bouchard. "Still, you're not from the prairie, And yet you know cold . . . You say you've been cold? Of all those memories we share when we're old, None are more clear than that hard bitter cold. You'll not find among us a soul who can say: 'I've conquered the wind on a cold winter's day.' If you're not from the prairie, You don't know the cold, You've never been cold!" If you've never checked out this book, please do so. It sums up life on the prairie quite well. :)
"None is more impoverished than the one without gratitude. Gratitude is a currency that we can mint for ourselves, and spend without fear of bankruptcy."
