Dear loved Son,
This year is decidedly different from all the other Thanksgiving holidays. First of all, the surprises that came my way and continue to do so, have been, well, answered prayers. I have really enjoyed going back into the field of entertainment as a makeup artist and the jobs that have come my way have been phenomenal!
I got called in to do a job last minute for an artist that couldn’t do it and I ended up on a commercial for VISA. We had 16 Olympic athletes to groom and though all of them were impressive, there was one athlete that raised the bar to it’s highest level. Her name is Terezinha Guilhermina, and she is a runner that is blind and is a medal winner many times over! She is Brazilian and is set to run and win in the 2016 games in Brazil. All of the athletes have been to prior games and some of them as many as 5.
I felt so elated after finding out about the woman I was taking care of on the set that day. Team VISA commercials will be running non-stop once they’re launched in the beginning of next year, and I will be cheering for Terezinha to win. She wants to win gold in all her three events and plans on bettering her times from the London games.
It never surprises me when I meet remarkable people in the world inspiring us all to do our best and even go beyond, but I will tell you I always have deep gratitude when I am in their presence. I am wishing you, other children, parents and family members that are not able to be with their loved this year, a magical and memorable Thanksgiving. Today on my blog of love and connection to you we had visitors from six different countries. Looks like this way of connecting to you has gone global!
Happy Thanksgiving Darian, with lots of LOVE,
