Hello everyone! These are older posts but I think you'll enjoy them!
I had the weekend of a life time traveling around NY state with my friend Adrienne to see the great governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. Words cannot explain what we have experienced these past three days, but I will do my best to tell you about this wonderful trip. Our first stop was in Auburn, NY where Sarah was invited to Auburn's first Founders Day honoring Alaska's 50th year of statehood. William Seward, who had once lived in Auburn was responsible for Alaska becoming part of the U.S.
Governor Palin was not expected to arrive in Auburn until Saturday, but she decided to travel to this historic town a day early to experience the history that Auburn has to offer (She visited the Harriet Tubman House and the Woman's Rights Museum). Friday morning, the Governor attended a welcoming breakfast that was held at a local restaurant called Bistro One. Adrienne and I were invited to the breakfast and were given the chance to meet Sarah. I will admit, I was a bit nervous because the thought that I was about to meet the one person who I admire so much could not sink into my mind.
When Sarah entered the room, the nerves increased dramatically. The fact that Governor Palin and I were standing in the same room seemed unreal. At this point, I just looked up and prayed to God that I wouldn't pass out! But once Sarah and I were face to face, all of my nerves left my body and I suddenly felt comfortable!
Sarah was everything I thought she would be. She was so beautiful ( TV does NOT do her justice!) and when I spoke to her, she never looked away. Not once! Adrienne and I said that this is why people are so drawn to her--she actually listens! You could see in her eyes that she truly cared and appreciated what I had to say. I know that I said that Sarah looked beautiful, but I can say that she is more beautiful on the inside. Most people are blind to the beauty that Sarah holds within her and that's unfortunate because inner beauty is so hard to find in people these days, so we need to hold onto the people that have it. Sarah is the real thing--she never changes to impress.
Adrienne and I also met Todd Palin. I am going to use the words "cool guy" because Todd really is a cool guy! Even though he has gained fame from Sarah's appearance on the national stage, the fame has not taken over his head. He is such a kind and respectful man and is so proud of Sarah's accomplishments.
This was only one of the three days that Adrienne and I were with Governor Palin! So stay tuned for parts two and three!
