I say it to my team all the time, and it's true about my customers and readers as well: I am so blessed to have such a large and wonderful group of women around me. I consider this one of the several outstanding gifts New Zealand has given to me. This is such a culture of warm, accepting, non-judgemental people, truly a blessed nation. I felt it such a honour to be allowed to vote on Saturday.
This beautiful bag was presented to me by a tiny lady with a giant heart last week. Isn't she fantastic? Not only for being so generous, but also so talented! Thanks, Merilyn, for your love and friendship. And thank you all for enriching my life.
