I will never forget the excitement and over-whelming humility I felt. It was just like any other Saturday morning. I was still rubbing the sleep from eyes, wrapped up in my super soft pink robe, wearing one of knee length nightgowns and pink fuzzy slippers. I sat down at my desk with my first cup coffee and clicked on my lap top. Like most other girls, once my CDH profile page loaded, I would instinctively look up to the top right corner and see if there was a number on top of the notification icon. I got use to not seeing any number there. But on this Saturday morning my heart skipped a couple of beats when I saw 3 notifications pending. Three sisters had mentioned me so I quick went to my wall to see what they had said. All three girls, one of whom I recognized as a friend and two other girls, had congratulated me on being selected as a “FEATURED MEMBER”. At first I was confused. I scrolled over and down to the featured members list and there it was……..
MY CHIN HIT THE FLOOR !!
I sat there and stared at my profile image amongst 3 other gorgeous ladies, sipped my coffee, and tried to make some sense out of it. I asked myself, “how did such a confused and angry girl like myself end up on such a prestigious list?” Later that day I got a message from a very special friend of mine, Camryn, whom I am associated with through the CDH group, “Bayou Belles”, and she described to me what had just happen to me. The shock I felt that day has never really subsided. Every morning for days there was always a number on my notification icon. So many girls sending me hugs and kisses and congratulations. I can’t remember a time I felt so loved.
I mentioned to my friend that if I could have just one positive thing happen for me through this whole featured member week it would be to meet just one other very special friend like she was to me. I realized something very important this week. I don’t have to try so hard. Every girl here at CDH is my “very special friend.” I love you all. Thank you for an unforgettable week.
