The Small Things Count. A Mind.Set.Go. Shout Out!

Besides wishing everyone had a safe and fun Mardi Gras Season, I would like to quickly give a Huge Shout Out to someone who has Gone the Extra Mile and continues to do the Small Things to help out.

Mind.Set.Go. would like to give a Shout Out to Ms. Kathy Mesmerelli, owner of Kathy’s Party Store in Laplace!

Right over Ms. Kathy's head hangs a picture of her finish line, and to the right of the picture is the jar she uses to this day to collect donations for Team Gleason!

Since I’m always searching for people who demonstrate that “Mind.Set.Go. Mentality” as I like to call it, Ms. Kathy is a woman that has literally Gone the Extra Mile to help support Mind.Set.Go. and Team Gleason. Not only was she one of the first commitments of our 16 Sponsors for the “Going the Extra Mile for ALS” 5k and 1 Mile Walk, but she was also responsible for the epic finish line, and to this day, Ms. Kathy is still collecting donations in her store for Team Gleason!

Ms. Kathy, along with 3 other helping hands, were able to put together this Work of Art! Absolutely Awesome.

I believe before making the Finish Line, this was one of the bigger archs that Ms. Kathy had made. She went above and beyond to get it made and have it up in time for the run!

It’s little things that Ms. Kathy does on a daily basis that end up making a difference in the long run. I didn’t even ask her to continue collecting donations. She even came up with the idea herself. The finish line was no easy project, and she dedicated time out of her own schedule to make the vision a reality. She is absolutely welcoming and goes out of her way to help.

It’s the small things that end up making a big difference in the long run, and I’ll admit, I sometimes forget how important the small things can be.

But from the first day I had the pleasure of meeting her, to now, Ms. Kathy has continually helped to give back and serves as a Reminder to myself that The Small Things Do Count……

So to everyone in the Laplace and surrounding areas, if you ever need any type of party needs fulfilled, I highly suggest giving Kathy’s Party Store a visit. Not only will you get what you need for your party, but you will also meet a genuinely honest and helpful person.

And here is the Start/Finish Line being put to use!

Thank You, Ms. Kathy, for being an example of what it means to demonstrate that “Mind.Set.Go. Mentality” and for always having your door open.

Thanks to everyone, especially those who may still be feeling the effects of Mardi Gras, for taking the time to read this. Give Ms. Kathy a visit or simply contribute to the jar you will find on the right of her desk. She will help you out and you have the opportunity to help out as well. It’s a Win-Win.

Think Positive. The Small Things Do Count.

Think Positive. Live Positive.
