Late Welcome, but WELCOME!!!

Dear Linda,
I just found out today that you are the Chair of the board of World Pulse. I would like not only to welcome you, but to thank you for having taken such a position. The WP has meant so much to me, and the ripples of the pulse keep forming and become bigger and bigger in my life. I am eternally grateful to be a member of the Pulse.

I also heard so many wonderful things about The Harvard Kennedy School of Women's Leadership. What an honor must be to be a part of this incredible institution. I think I met several members of the School in the Arab Emirates 4 years ago in the conference where I presented a paper "Women's Global Leadership" in Abu Dhabi.

Greetings and blessings

Such a pleasure to welcome you...its strange that we did not welcome you yet....Like Araceli said, we all thank you for taking up such a huge responsibility. WP certainly is an amazing forum. I have come so much closer to myself ever since i became a part of it. The friendships i have developed here will last a lifetime. I feel more empowered, and i love myself more.

I once again welcome you here...

Dear Lin,

It is so great a joy to welcome you to PulseWire. I'm sorry this is a belated message in time, but not in heart. Thank you for all the work you do with World Pulse.
You're work is amazing and inspiring. What an incredible example to many of us. I was moved and awaken with inspiration, when I read about your work and endeavors. You are powerful!
I am certain you will find great happiness connecting with women on PulseWire. I have been moved and driven to action, by the stories of the PulseWire women. So many courageous, empowered women, projecting their futures into the PulseWire community. It's amazing. It's a humble honor to be able to connect with the women who have 'authored' these amazing entries. It is a rare thing, to be able to read the accounts of women around the world, to hear their story, and then to be able to write them. The relationships I have made are a testament to the fulfillment and blessed weight that PulseWire and World Pulse have pulled in the lives of women worldwide.
What a beautiful honor it is be a part of this community. I am so glad you are here too.
As women, we are powerful!
Journey on into the new day...
