The Ultimate in Networking

I mentioned my daughter-in-law, Lisa in a post recently. I am the luckiest mom in the whole world because I have two really, really great daughters-in-law.

Lisa came into our family because of a networking event. You see my son, Greg, had told me that he was ready to begin dating after having been divorced for a couple years. I don't think Match.com was around then. Lisa was a member of my Toastmasters club. She was pretty, smart and single. I decided that she might make a good date for Greg. I also decided to have a dinner party for ten, with only eight of the guests knowing the real reason for the event, which was to get Lisa and Greg together. It was kind of challenging finding a time that ten people had available, but I persevered!

What can I say, the rest is history. The two in the "dark", saw the light and began dating soon after, although for the longest time, Lisa was determined that they were going on outings, not dates. She has been the light of Greg's life and everyone else in our family, too.

I guess you could call this the ultimate connection. And I'm darn proud of it.

Can you top this?????

You are the Networking Guru!!"

Maybe I should enlist your networking skills in my dating world. The last two networkers who connected me with dates....well, you know the story.
