The Speech

I didn't chicken out, I gave the speech! The night before and the day of I was a nervous wreck! My hands were shaking and I was kicking myself for not picking an easier topic!

But I felt all your prayers and I did make it through! Not without tears, but I wasn't the only one who cried. A few audience members cried as well which to me meant they "heard" really "heard" what I had to say. All in all, I think it was a success, even though I cried in public which I HATE to do, LOL! It felt kind of good actually to get up there and talk about Bryston and what Richard Olsen is doing with his organizations. At first I felt a bit naked and exposed but the more that I talked the more that I realized that it was a good thing. My 8 minutes of being uncomfortable might (I hope) make a difference someday.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your prayers & support last Thursday! I'm sorry that it took me so long to update you all on how it went, it's finals week and I literally think I have steam coming out of my ears, haha! I cannot wait until this week is over!!


In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. - 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Yay! I'm so proud of you. I've been praying and I'm so glad you made it through okay. I hate crying in public too, but I've come to realize that it's totally worth it if I get to talk about Wyatt for a few seconds :} Big Hugs girlie! I'm doing my victory dance over here!!!!
