The day was cold and the kinship of the day made it so much warmer. Many, many high points to the day but I'll only list the biggest one for me since I'm tired and ready for a hot bath right now. My personal high point was when Mistress Wyndreth Berginsdottir was brought into the Order of the Great Bear (for those that don't know, this is an award that is given to those who embody the spirit of the Kingdom. The premier of the Order is HE Caradoc followed by HRM Gwyneth, and HE Giovanna.) As she came up the aisle after being called forth, a spontaneous chorus of "Shield My Kinsman" filled the hall as tears filled our eyes. The entire scene reminded me why I love this organization and these people so much.
