Straight from my heart – A glimpse into what makes my fellow Panelists so very precious to me.
As I sit down to write this weeks article for my new feature “Moms Panel Monday”, in which I will share a little bit about a fellow Panelist each week, I find myself smiling.
Have you ever met someone and within a few short conversations, you felt like you’d found a missing piece to your puzzle? That’s how I feel about Deborah. New to the Moms Panel this year, Deborah has already solidified her place in my heart.
In early January, I asked Deborah if she would be willing to help me organize this years upcoming Moms Panel Reunion. Without hesitation, she jumped on board. Since then, we have shared countless texts, Tweets, emails and phone conversations. She’s been a terrific partner and I’m so glad to have her by my side.
Not only is Deb brilliant with a huge heart and magnetic smile, but she is also incredibly quick-witted and an utter riot! Her tweets make me giggle daily.
We’ve developed a bond that goes far beyond organizing the Moms Panel Reunion together. We’ve shared some conversations that have inspired me (she just signed up for her first marathon), others that have challenged me (“eat your veggies”) and some that have simply left me feeling blessed to have her in my life.
I’m really looking forward to seeing her again in September and making many more magical memories together!
As an English professor at the University of South Florida, Deborah has a natural gift for writing. If you haven’t done so yet, I hope you’ll take a moment to enjoy one of her contributions to our Disney Driven Life Parenting column here:
Also, if you want to add some humor to your life, be sure you are following her on Twitter: @disneydeborah
Love ya, Deb!
