2013 Holiday Message
I had the honor of spending the Canadian Thanksgiving in Toronto this year and it is a season for holidays: Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa.
Yesterday I was at our community center at my home court, San Diego held it's 25th annual "Scott Carlson Community Thanksgiving Dinner" for the homeless, seniors, people living with AIDS and cancer ... hundreds were fed and 50 families with 130 children were delivered groceries and about 25 hospital patients got visits. A teen homeless shelter and a Tijuana AIDS hospice also were delivered food.
For me during these holiday seasons I take great joy and pride that so many of your courts are doing the same thing in your cities; food and toy drives, special visits, clothing and blanket drives, etc., etc.
This year has been a most difficult one for me health wise and yes financially ... but it is also the same for so many others and even worse. So I feel blessed to have a roof over my head and food on the table ... so many don't in our cities.
I am ... we are all blessed to have each other ... our court families and tho we may fight and disagree we are always there for each other in time of need.
During the holiday season sadly suicide rate goes up ... so let us watch out for each other ... reach out to those going through difficult times ... pick up the phone and let some one know you care and are thinking of them. Personally, I know about depression ... many go through it ... it's caring friends that makes those dark times bearable.
As you know I have proclaimed December 12, our beloved founder Empress I Jose birthday ... a National holiday within our court system ... "An International Day of Service" ... do something extra or volunteer on this day and share with us on the internet what you did in memory of our beloved Jose's birthday. I will be traveling to San Antonio, Texas for a special Jose Birthday benefit event.
This weekend I will be at Los Angeles Hollywood coronation and many of you will soon be also traveling to Las Vegas' coronation ... rounding out our year of travel and visits.
Especially during this holiday season ... know that I will be thinking of your courts and the so many noble deeds you all do for others.
Please know that I am so humbled to be your Queen Mother ... and yet take so much pride in all you do ... in February of 2014 it will be 8 years since Jose crowned me in Seattle
I have so much respect that many of you are Jewish, Christian, Muslim and yes Atheist ... As many of you know that I am Catholic and yes take great joy in our new Pope Francis who is changing so much the outlook of my church ... I ask you also during this time to think about our brothers and sisters suffering in the Philippines.
Matthew 25 verses 35,36: and he said: " For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit" .
Indeed, it is during these holiday season that I believe even more that so many of your courts are doing God's work ... Happy Holidays and God Bless you.
Queen Mother of the America's
