Lions Club--Giving Back Part 2
This is my second opportunity to share with a Lions Club Chapter. http://mwks13.blogspot.com/2013/11/lions-club-giving-back.html
This time it was in Ransom. While it wasn't to a room full of people I have known since childhood, it was still a room full of Lions. It was still a room full of people who listened respectfully and with whom I had great dinner conversation before my presentation and a great q&a time afterward. We had an amazing time of discussion with some very well thought out questions based on genuine, active listening of my presentation. In fact, I was asked questions about scrapbooking and left wondering how they knew I was a scrapbooker. It wasn't until I gave my presentation again and found myself mentioning a visit to the scrapbook store, that I realized I myself had told them I was a scrapbooker during my presentation. I guess I should do a better job at listening to myself talk. :)

"What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it--would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have."
