WOW! Double, Triple WOW! WOW! WOW!
I just got back from presenting a ‘Laughter? Let’s Get Serious!’ Laughter Wellness (a.k.a. Laughter Therapy, Laughter Yoga) program to a beautiful, HEARTY, HAR HAR HARDY bunch of generous, amazing women in a small mountain town about 20 miles from my home.
My HEART is SO FULL OF WARMTH from the ‘HEARTY’ reception I received after I presented the program to these women. They were not afraid or shy about responding to my suggestions with a HARDY HAR HAR HAR – laughing with me on fully on their own!
Their event was to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness and known as: ‘Paint the Town Pink’ – a Longaberger Basket fundraising event. There were at least 3 Cancer BEATERs there!
When I was done with the program and they finished their raffles – during which we all had fun using my LAFOLOT Cheering Flags to HOOT, HOLLER AND CHEER each winner of the many items raffled – they headed over to my LAFOLOT table of goodies for sale.
I have to say – I have never seen a more WARM, HARDY, HEARTY, GENEROUS bunch of beautiful souls! My heart welled up with warmth as they took turns telling me their personal stories –
One woman is a veteran who is no longer in active service due to injury. She explained she is home alone with two young children while her husband works. She note: THANK YOU SO MUCH! I’LL BE ABLE TO APPLY SO MUCH OF WHAT YOU SHARED! I WON’T HAVE TO SMOKE IN THE CAR ANY MORE! I’LL JUST WHIP OUT THIS PINWHEEL STRESS RELIEVER EVERYTIME I WANT A CIGARETTE!
Another woman came up to me and told me about her older friend who had a stroke and couldn’t make it. She asked if she could take ONE additional pinwheel stress reliever to give to her friend. I made her take three! I also gave her one of my Helen of LAFOLOT a Night at the Piano Bar music CDs so her friend could listen to the mellow sounds and heal from her stroke. I told her to laugh and listen to the music with her friend, it will help her mind to heal.
Another woman came up and said: WOW! WE COULD SURE USE THIS PROGRAM AT MY WORKPLACE! I was thrilled! She works at a local company whose attention I had been trying to get. I gave her a brochure and more SMILEY bookmarks and thanked her.
These women were so generous! Did I not say that already! I put my hand to my heart and sent it out to them one after the other. They just kept coming up, and giving me more than I was asking for my products to help my cause! My heart was welling with warmth and gratitude!
It was one story after the other, about how much they had gotten out of it, how wonderful it was, how they were going to apply it. I sold many Live Life! Laugh Often! Magnetic Bumper Displays. I normally give them to people that put them on their cars since it is advertising – but they insisted on paying!
These were the most AMAZING, HEARTY, HARDY HAR HAR LAUGHING FREELY, AS WELL AS FREELY SPREADING WARMTH AND GENEROSITY BUNCH of women I have ever met!
THANKS SO MUCH TO THE DUNCANNON, PA LONGABERGER BASKET – PAINT THE TOWN PINK WOMEN’S FUNDRAISING DINNER – YOU HAVE WARMED MY HEART MORE THAN THIS 100 DEGREE HEAT WAVE WE HAVE BEEN HAVING!
WITH LOVE AND GRATITUDE -
HA HA HELEN Szollosy of LAFOLOT
Live Life! Laugh Often! and
PAINT THE TOWN PINK!
