Living The Dream & Hoping To Help

My blessings are many and great – large healthy family, loving husband, fine friends, growing business, good intuition & common sense, born a US citizen, not bad shape for 55, birthing six kids, and not getting regular exercise, many opportunities to serve others, an audience who responds when I write or speak from the heart, and more.

I thank God every day for this abundance – then pray for wisdom to use them wisely and generously. And He responds by giving me more!

My trip to Paris this week with my 22 year-old daughter was a perfect example. The trip alone was incredible. But we even made friends with the world’s greatest soprano, Renee Fleming (who is smart, kind and much the opposite of prima dona), and her daughter Amelia.

Me; daughter Skatie Noyes, Renee & Amelia Fleming at a fabulous late night brasserie near the Bastille Opera House (where Renee had just performed Arabella).

And it got even better with a private lunch on Wednesday with the Chef Du Cave of Dom Perignon, Richard Geoffroy, in the Versailles-like villa built by the grandson of Dom Perignon, who is one of Richard’s predecessors. Like Renee, Richard is warm, smart, kind and the opposite of a prima dona.

I’m living the dream – and oh so grateful. Praying to live with wisdom, generosity and helpfulness every day going forward. It seems that the more I give and love, the more life brings me.

Please let me know if I can pay it forward by helping you.

  1. Hi Susan, I’d like to take advantage of your generous offer! You could help me indeed!
    I’m a huge fan of Renée Fleming, and I tried to meet her again in Vienna a couple of weeks ago, after Arabella, too. But she fell ill and had to cancel, and I couldn’t afford another trip to Paris for another performance. – So you could pay it forward by cheering me up with some more details about her performance and how she’s doing. 🙂
    Greetings from Hannover, Germany,
    Susanne
