Mikell has greatly impacted my life. She has inspired me with her courage and faith and has become a wonderful teacher and friend.

Earlier this year I was blessed to meet a woman who would teach me major life lessons about faith, acceptance, priorities, forgiveness, and love.

One year ago, this past week, Mikell lost her entire home and it's contents to the rising waters of the Yellow Breeches Creek in Mechanicsburg, PA. Please read her blog posting to understand the unfolding of events that evening in April of 2011 (http://mikellsgems.livejournal.com/
2011/05/14/). Flood insurance won't even cover a quarter of the cost of replacing her home and the contents.

When Mikell told her story, I expected an array of negative emotions from her... but quite the contrary! Mikell is one of the most peaceful, appreciative, generous and loving individuals that I have had the pleasure of meeting in my life. She seems supported internally by her faith and always spreads her love and support to others in need. I often hear her express her gratitude for the wonderful people she has met throughout this unplanned journey. I too feel blessed to have met not only a wonderful mentor, but a dear friend. Thank you Mikell for sharing your lessons in such a loving and positive way... The world truly needs more Mikells!!!
