I never got back to you on the MACA march. It was amazing! We had 49 people sign up to join us in Carson City... only 5 people showed up. But the lack of numbers did not deter us. We were out there in front of the Legislature building from about 9 am until about 4:30 pm. It was a long day and as much fun as I had I also was exhausted when I got home, well even before I got home. Clearly I am not a young woman anymore, I just can't hang out all day and feel good at the end of it. My face got soooo burned. But I'm not complaining. My boss sent me home Monday night so I got to sleep. Then I spent all day Tuesday resting and feeling like I had been hit by a truck.
Okay so back to the march. We got to talk to an Assemblyman. He asked some pointed questions and gave some honest answers. Both of which led us to look a lot closer at what exactly we want to do as an organization here in Nevada. We are going to start small and see if we can get the ball rolling. We learned that we need to be careful to not infringe, even with suggested changes in law, in anyone's rights. I have worked in law enforcement for a long time, but I've never been on the actual lawyer side of the court room. I had no idea that civil rights could be infringed upon by asking for a stronger sentence, but that's what the Assemblyman claimed. I think he was dodging but... we'll start small and go from there. On thing I do know is to change the law it is better to work within the law to make it happen.
I'm waiting on some photo's from Miss Nevada's photographer. He took a slew of them and some video as well that he is excited to share with us all. Of course I reached out to Miss Nevada by giving her a copy of my book and I really hope that she likes it. She's an amazing lady and I am really pleased that I got to meet her. I hope it leads to more time to spend with her. I'll let you know when I get the pics, I'll probably make a new page for them, like I did the Zombie run. BTW, I'm trying to convince Keia to put on a Zombie run at the end of the summer! Wish me luck.
In other news, I went down to Dayton today and sold 14 of my books to a bookstore. He had ordered 10 and when I showed him 4 other titles he wanted those as well. It was exciting, but even more exciting than that was that he wanted me to help him with a textbook/workbook that he uses in his work as a Psychologist. The meeting worked out for me in so many wonderful areas I just love the way things come together. I am reminded at this time of my favorite Bible verse:
Isaiah 40:31 For they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as Eagles, they shall walk and not be weary, they shall run and not faint.
The tough part about that one is the waiting part. You know the old saying about the wheels of justice being slow, well sometimes it seems that God's timing is slower than that. But all things manage to work out right.
Over the past few months I have made some great contacts and some big moves and changes in my life, now I'm believing and hoping that God's timing is as spot on as it has been in my life in the past. I am ready for some positive boosts. Along those lines an odd thing happened the other day, I purchased a Chinese dinner the other day and for once actually ate the cookie. Inside the cookie the fortune read: The world is almost ready to embrace your talent. It's cool how things come together but also how things point to them before they happen.
