You are — all of you — sincerely invited to join me this evening in celebrating an important occasion.
Tonight is the night we raise a toast to democracy, to representative government, to the well-received presentation I gave to politicians and other key influentials today, and to the wisdom of the California Assembly Members on the Higher Education Committee who, this very afternoon, voted UNANIMOUSLY and AFFIRMATIVELY for Assembly Bill 2165!*
Yes, I know there are other steps this bill must travel on its journey to what I hope will be passage by all members of the Assembly and Senate — before it can land on the Governator’s desk. But tonight, I would like you to celebrate with me this one important victory, because every journey begins with a single step.
Grab a glass and let’s make a toast!
*For an explanation about all this, if you’re new to the party, see “My Rosa Resolution,” a few posts back.
That’s wonderful! Congratulations! It must feel so good to have your efforts rewarded with this victory.
Thanks! It feels fabulous — so rewarding and so important!
*clinking glass with you*
That is just ABSOLUTELY spectacular! Bravo to you for being such a good mom and good person and kickin’ butt and takin’ no prisoners!
The Governator had best sign that…
Aw, thanks! It’s not about me, but I appreciate the compliments, anyway.
I agree…Ah-nold will have to sign…and I want the signing pen for my son!
Woo-hoo is right! (Thanks for coming to the party!)
Congratulations, I’m thrilled to hear this–I was actually on the verge of emailing to ask for an update.
It means a lot to me that you’ve taken an interest in this — so THANKS!!
*pours you some celebratory champagne*
Thanks! It’s raining hard here this morning, but I’ve got sunshine in my heart! =:)
That’s wonderful news. Congratulations!!!
btw, I gave myself a little BREATHING ROOM on the flight home from Sacramento. That V — and her author/creator — is going to go far!
Congratulations! And the Sacramento sharks didn’t get to you. Amazing. Actually, wouldn’t that make a great hockey team name. San Jose doesn’t need a team anyway.
No sharks allowed in the pool, not yesterday and not ever!
WOW! Impressive. Go, you!
Thanks! And hey, your icon is a perfect visual for how I felt about all this. I did a happy dance in my head the whole plane ride home!
