    Blogger Patty L. Fletcher is the first to know about the prestigious award I received recently. I have not yet sent out official press releases but have been sitting on this news for some time. I wanted Patty to be the FIRST to know for she has been a wonderful friend. Thank you, Patty for your blog feature. I am re-blogging this to SAN-A-BLOG so that my readers now know about this awesome surprise I received.

    Since I have retired from academia and no longer lecture across the country at conferences, I was never expecting something like this. But, God has always delighted in giving us special surprises when we least expect them. I am most grateful for this award at this time in my life.

    Thank you to all of my friends who encourage me and inspire me every day. You have blessed my life in so many ways.
