A Note From Your President...


The Month of “LOVE”

It was a cold winter day when my husband, Randy, and I were preparing to eat our evening meal at a warm restaurant. A young man introduced himself as our server and took our drink order. He soon returned to tell us he was mistaken and a young lady was to be our server.

While we were eating, my attention was drawn to that young man as I watched him communica
te with the peoplehe was serving. Sitting there was what appeared to be, a young father with his adorable little daughter, approximately 3 years old.

As I
 watched and listened, I overheard the server asking the little girl questions like, “Did you see Santa?” and “Do you like the snow? As the conversation continued, I was intrigued by what he had in his hands. He was making something. Then I saw it. A flower appeared, from a napkin, and he joyfully laid it in the hands of the little girl. He had gone out of his way to show love and kindness to his customers.

As t
he evening continued, it got even more interesting. The father/daughter duo soon left but another young father and young daughter were seated at the table next to the first one. Guess what the server was doing? He was making another flower and asking the little girl the same questions. We finished our meal and I walked up to the server, put some dollar bills in his apron pocket, and said, “You are an amazing, caring person. Keep up the good work”. His manager agreed when I told him the server was a “keeper”.

wing people that we care, that’s what February is all about. That’s what AWBO is about, too, caring about one another and our community.

What have you done or will you do to express love to those you care
 about? How will you show kindness to the ones you meet? Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and make someone feel special today!

Best regards,
Melony Ramsey
