In front of Harrah's Casino in South Lake Tahoe
(a beautiful place that is very familiar to me)...
a RED CARPET went from the front of the hotel to a long white limo...
and guess who got to walk down that red carpet and get into that limo?!?
lil' ol me!
I saw the the tiny, Connie Chung, walking up to the limo...she greeted me with a huge smile, Starbucks in hand, and said, "HI Kandee!!!"....she new my name!
Her tall hubby, Mr. Maury Povich, climbed in the limo after her....as I reached out to introduce myself...he already new my name too....!
We talked about their house in Montana..how I've always thought I wanted a big ranch there...even though I've never even been there..ha ha ha
Connie was the most gracious, kind, friendly, and funny woman! She asked me if it was alright to listen in on the tv show she would be joining...so as not to be rude and interrupt me talking to her. She was so kind, sweet, genuine, and adorable. She made funny faces at me while we were filming...made me laugh...and inspired me.
if I wrote her a letter it would say this:
thank you for showing me the true meaning of being a gracious and kind, successful woman...
you thanked everyone, told them they did great jobs, you treated everyone the same way...and didn't act as if you were too important to be kind and willing to help...
you have inspired me to greatness!
Her face lit up with kindness, she had loving eyes, and you felt her being honestly interested in what you were saying. She included and made everyone feel equally important, from me to the camera man, to the photogaphers...to the man that was working with the celebrity golf tournament there. She made fun of her herself, she made others feel special and important...that is what I always want to do.
At the end of this life....who cares about what you've accomplished...but if you've touched other people, made their hearts feel better...then, and only then are you a success.
She was talking about Walter Cronkite, who was a legend in news...he told her to always be herself. And that is when people really like you....when you are genuinely the you that your heart wants to be, not the you, you think is safe to show the world...but the real you that will shine brightly!
I have more...but it'll have to wait til tomorrow...
I saw the sunrise
I saw a hot air balloon rise up over lake tahoe
I saw the majesty of the mountains hugging the lake and it made me feel small...and I liked it
And I have Connie Chung's phone number in my cell phone...I feel like Oprah or some important person with important person's numbers in my phone! ha ha ha ha
