nothing like a good nap and other updates…

So while the rest of the world was learning that the cheating skunk known as John Edwards was getting his six-count indictment I slept.  A really good solid sleep for another four hours.   I have always loved naps and while I still hurt I do feel  a little better this afternoon.

I am glad John Edwards is getting his.  I always thought he was a phony baloney, and well, what he did to his incredibly brave wife Elizabeth Edwards was criminal behavior in and of itself.  

Elizabeth Edwards fought her breast cancer with grace and style and was open about it, which trust me is not the easiest thing to do.  I now know that, even if talking about it helps.  But Elizabeth Edwards dignity and positive outlook now helps women like me.  And trust me, you get this diagnosis, you start to live with it, you appreciate the women who came before you who dealt with it in an open and positive manner.

So also this afternoon, someone from General Motors reached out to me about my issue with that Chevy woman I wrote about the other day.  Only this woman form the corporate offices in New York was more my kind of woman.  She sent me an e-mail:

I work for General Motors on the Northeast Region Communications team and manage our Chevrolet grassroots efforts in Pennsylvania.  I read your blog and wanted to reach out to you directly.

I am very sorry that you feel that strongly about Chevrolet.

We do our best to partner with as many community organizations as possible and in the best way that we can. We partnered with LBBC for the Yoga on the Steps event and are open to partnerships in future.  

Please feel free to reach out to me if you’d like to discuss this further or have any questions.

Hope you get better soon.

 So I called her up – you know me – not shy about these things.  We had a lovely conversation and she apologized for what had upset me previously.  She was very nice and now I am left feeling good about the whole situation, versus how I previously felt which was super irritated.   I hope that GM appreciates the job this woman does, because she was honest, forthright, and just pleasant.   So Chevy? Apology accepted and we will chalk up your other person as to having had a very bad day.

In a couple of hours, it’s First Friday – I won’t be there for the car parade, but I hope a lot of people go and support First Friday Main Line and Living Beyond Breast Cancer which is the charity within the charity this month.

A friend of mine today described this as a “Maine Day”  and it is.  The weather is spectacular and it’s a great day to be alive.

I choose love, joy and freedom, open my heart and allow wonderful things to flow into my life.
