News from our National VicePresident
With Thanksgiving in Novemberand the Christmas season justaround the corner, we haveofﬁcially entered my favorite timeof the year.
It’s the time of yearwhere people seem a bit nicer, alittle more willing to give, a bitmore sympathetic to the needs toothers around them.
We begin tolook towards a new year with freshgoals and a sense of renewal.
This is the time of year when Ibegin writing our holiday letterﬁlled with pictures and stories of the adventures my husband and Ihad.
In doing so, I have anopportunity every year to look back on those pictures and reﬂecton the memories, and to really seeall of the reasons that I have to bethankful.
So this year as I begin our letter, Iwanted to share with eachmember of NVP team, Pay itForward, that I am so thankful forthe people in my life whoencouraged me to always believein myself and pursue everyopportunity which led to mebecoming a National VicePresident.
Without thoseindividuals, I would not have hadthe chance to meet the StatePresidents, and members fromeach of these states who haveinspired and motivated me, andwhom I only hope I taught themhalf as much as I have learnedfrom them.
This season of thanksgiving, stopfor a moment to reﬂect on what you are most thankful for andshare that message withothers.
Encourage those around you to do the same – you may justbe the person someone else isthankful for, inspiring andmotivating them to do more andseek out new opportunity.
PAY IT FORWARD!
NVP Jennifer J. Ray
