Gratitude to My Teachers and Mentors
My mother, Ruthie, used to say, “Something doesn’t come from nothing”. I call statements from my mother “Ruthie-isms”. This Ruthie-ism applies to my entire life. This present moment of my life is made up of millions of moments from my past in which I was guided, supported, loved and believed in by teachers and mentors. I would like to thank them here.
I thank Dawna Markova and Andy Bryner who helped me open doors to myself so that I could begin to “see” me for the first time.
I thank Hedi Weiler for believing in me with her depth of heart and soul and teaching me about compassion and faith.
I thank Paul Ditscheit for showing me “the Lion within” and for helping me stay my course to life and light.
I thank Suzan Pelfrey for never letting me take my eye off the prize of living true and forward and for reminding me how precious it is to love forward.
I thank Bettina de Perez for knowing me for over half my life and loving me; and for speaking such truth with such heart that I can’t help but hear.
I thank Richard Slade and Dan Hanneman, my newest teachers and mentors for taking me to my next steps on my path.
My prayer is this, “May I be a Teacher and Mentor to many as I move forward in my life.”
In Gratitude and Appreciation,
