I survived !

I said my speach yesterday...no panic attacks, no vomiting...
only heavy sweating & hard breathing, but I survived!!!
it was extremely hot to begin with, in the room where we were,
which was a classroom at the Nelson Center (senior & rec. center)...
I'm sure my nerves didn't help and I swear I had to have a power-surge (you gals over 30 will know what I mean) right there & then...why of course i did.
I was probably to blame for the heat in the room! ha!

all kidding aside, i think I did well...I even received applause! wow!
after my speach, questions were asked & answered...everyone was so welcoming to me and wanted to know so much about me & what i do...
I really miss working with an Historical Society, so this will be good for me...
I want to say thanks to all of you who commented on my last post!
you all have more faith in me than i do myself, & i sincerely thank you for that...
My Glory is I have SUCH Friends....I'm blessed to 'know' all of you!

Standing ovation for you Lori!! Now that you've done it, you shouldn't be as "warm" next time lol. And I certainly hope there are more opportunities for you to speak somewhere else. Congrat's!

Good for you. I love your blog and your stitcheries.

Way to go girl!! I knew you could do it...and I know exactly what you mean about the power surge! To this day I still get nervous...I don't like to be the center of attention...let me do the work in the background!!

Heather said...

Good for you! You have such a talent! I am so in awe!~

Rosie said...

That's brilliant, well done!

Sherry said...

Yea Lori! I knew you could do it! You have the golden touch! Congratulations! I know you will love working on a historical society again!

P.S. Since the holidays I haven't had any ideas for articles to send you for the newsletter. Like I dried up with writer's block! Hopefully it returns soon!
