Small But Mighty

I am one lucky girl.
First off, years and years ago when I was still in college,
I happened to meet a man who would have a huge impact on my life--
a man who would serve as my mentor and become a dear, dear friend.
Meet David Glodt.
When I met him, he was the Los Angeles Bureau Chief for ABC News,
then he went on to oversee Europe (based in London) and then the weekend
news- including the David Brinkley Show.
I spent several Sundays in the Green Room and the studio
with David- and David Brinkley, Sam Donaldson, George Will
and Cokie Roberts.  
I never made a career move in my television career without
first consulting David.
As I said I was lucky and spoiled to have him in my corner.
And who'd ever think he would make a yearly trek to Boise on business
and I'd get to see him here.
We celebrated Reese's first double digit birthday Monday night-
with a night out for dinner and then lots of presents.
 A few highlights:  this sweet hand knitted mermaid blanket
from Greer and Holland....
 this vintage Nancy Drew collector's book (Reese
adores Nancy Drew books)...
 and of course, what is fast becoming a tradition by our Greer girl--
a "candy cake".
I still can't believe my little Reese is the big ten.
She's about the size of a 6 year old-- but sure packs
a punch when it comes to personality and spunk.
We have probably told her too many times "small but mighty".
She sure is....
