Hello and Happy New Year to you and your family, Lyn. I chant for the best for you and yours.
I have to let you know about my last cat scan.....it showed no cancer compared to the one 4 years ago that showed it in 4 places in my body....isn't that great?
And after this last conference at FNCC, I decided to move on to Spokane. I saw a building on the internet that is affordable housing for the elderly and just knew that the apartment on the of the building that caught my eye was going to be mine.... and it is. I move the 4th of January to Spokane in that very apartment. The folks I visited with while at FNCC, the Rories from Spokane are just wonderful friends and I trust them 100 % just like I do you and he said that was the place to be.... right in the building.
Stay upright and mobile.....thanks again to you for all you do for the members - the fortune you create is there for you...
I haven't been to Hawaii,since I was marching down Kalakoa Ave with the SGI brass band in 1984-5 (? forget what year). And I was in the front row doing the wave in the performance at the Waikiki Shell. It's long overdue that I return, but until I do, I'll send my daimoku for Hawaiian kosen rufu. .
Dear Lyn, Junko and Brian, Hey back atcha, sure is good to see you guys. I miss yous too :). Mikki and I were just talking about how we miss those days when we all used to chant together. I am so happy that you are doing well and standing up for the organization. How is Brian doing? What grade is he in now? Philip is is 9th! Natalya in 7th and Johnny is doing wonderfully in his private school for autism. Ever since I started focusing my daimoku on his complete success he started talking more and more and his progress has been phenomenal! I chant everyday for the answers and to find the right professionals that can assist us in his recovery. We are so fortunate to have this practice! Lots of love and blessings for your family. Good fortune to you. Your friend in faith, Shari
i've seen your "about me". My husband also started to have but we don't call them "intro. mtg". we call the buddhist seminar on Fort Hood, Tx. Kinda going really slow... would love to hear your what you do in your meetings, how to do publize etc... My husband is the POC on the military installation for anyone looking for "Buddhism". have already been contacted with sgi-usa military coordinator/leader from CA. . also know some member's who live in Hawaii in Pearl City, the Loredo's. Thank you,
Hooah! That is great about the military group! I think it would help to have my husband meet you once we get to Schofield next year. Would we be part of the Kaimana District or just the Schofield group?
