Celebrating Women: Donna Rae

I love the glorious pay-it-forward cycle Celebrating Women has gotten into. Two week’s ago I celebrated Betsy Wuebker . In turn, she celebrated Lynn Banks Freeman. Lynn immediately sent me an email with the following to say in celebration of

Donna Rae

I’m honored to be recognized by Betsy. I am now paying it forward and would like to recognize my friend, Donna Rae. I moved to Tulsa, OK in the summer of 1972. I started a new elementary school and Donna was the first person who spoke to me on the playground that first day of school. We have been friends since!

Donna has been by my side through thick and thin, as recently as July 31st at my mother’s funeral. Even though we live miles apart, I know that all I have to do is pick up the phone and Donna’s right there! I realize as I get older that it is not the quantity but quality of friends one has.

Donna became a first-time mom on her 39th birthday. She is the most devoted, loving mom to her son. She supports all of his endeavours and is so proud of him.

Donna also takes wonderful care of her mother, who lives in a senior apartment complex. Donna takes her shopping, handles her finances, and is a wonderful daughter to her mom.

I’m honored to call this beautiful, smart, and talented woman my friend..

I love Lynn’s statement “it is not the quantity but quality of friends one has”. She is absolutely right. As we age, we come to understand this more and more. Thank you for sharing Donna with us, Lynn.
