Nonplussed an adjective meaning : (of a person) surprised and confused so much that they are unsure how to react.
Yup, that was me at the last DFGC meeting when I finally heard my name being called to come up and receive a Lifetime Membership award from the Delaware Federation of Garden Clubs given by Countryside Garden Club.
After the sound came back into by ears, LOL I then of course began to cry with such gratitude and the feeling of being nonplussed! It is an honor to be a recipient of such a prestigious award in this circle of a statewide garden club affiliation, as I write this I am still in shock and amazed I was given this blessing.
It was also nice to have my Momma there to share in the joy, we all were pleasantly surprised; it just was a happy moment indeed.
Thanks Countryside from the bottom of my heart its a pleasure and an honor to be in such a wonderful garden club that has taught me many things and more so, allowed me to be friends with some amazing people who have become a special part of my life.
As they mentioned in the documentation submitted for the award, although I may have a very busy personal and professional life I enjoy finding time for my garden club.
What is even more special is that, I was not the only recipient of this special award it was great to know I shared this dedication along with Gerry and Hiro two people I just adore. They unfortunately were unable to attend the meeting but at our monthly club meeting the following day they were presented with their award and the special pin that goes with it.
In gratitude, we all say thank you! What we do for our club is easy since those we do for, the wonderful members of our club make our labor of love a joyous one. OXXX
