Today, I would like to HONOR HELEN for her heart and say THANK YOU! (see LINK on the right under Favorite Sites with a Purpose)
I AM THANKFUL for HELEN for WHO SHE IS and HOW SHE USES THAT for a GOOD PURPOSE in all she does here in Mazatlan!
(sorry Helen that this may not be the best photo to post of you, but it's the only one I have with you and Bob)
Helen (and Bob) could have just come to Mazatlan, retire, enjoy life and forget about others.
But, because of WHO HELEN is, she became involved long before retiring, in part some of her heart comes from experiences from her own life and life back home in Canada.I met Helen one day, and instantly she took me under her wing. She started by including me in a "fun project" where she raises money for noble causes:
She invited me, last year, to join her and the other delightful volunteers, by translating to Spanish what her husband, Bob, announces in English [and I'd like to add that he has a very distinctive voice-so I'll call him"DJ Bob"] This year, she was able to get a native Spanish speaker, to help her with the Spanish translation part (better for business, to include more people from the community, in addition to the wonderful, faithful tourists that come and participate).
Helen is also very obedient and shows great wisdom!
Helen is compassionate, fun, loving and giving!
