Thankful for The Red Hat Society!4 Wednesday, November 18, 2009



The holidays are here once more. Thanksgiving dinner will be made, pies will be consumed and plans for Christmas will take action. This year, instead of letting these days pass by at the speed of light, take time to think about all that is good in your life, including The Red Hat Society. The Red Hat Society brings so much joy into many womens lives including my very own. Reflect back on all of this past years most cherished memories.

For many women, the Red Hat Society plays a huge role in their everyday lives. Perhaps it's how we met our closest friends, bonded with the women in our family, maybe it's how we learned to thrive with age, or perhaps it's a place where we learned how our skills or talents could best be used. The Red Hat Society is many different things to all of its members, yet we can all agree on the one clear message of the Red Hat Society and that is for Women to encourage fun, friendship, freedom and fulfillment while forming close bonds. Everyday The Red Hat Society members put forth this message and spread their happiness and love all over the world. That's why this Thanksgiving and all the rest to come I will be giving thanks to the Red Hat Society! Thank you to all my fellow Red Hatters for being so fabulous and always staying true to yourselves.

Happy Thanksgiving!
