Public Speaking

Someone told me today that I was a good public speaker.
I laugh because public speaking was never my thing.

I used to do anything to get out of it in school, or church.
A few run ins with people judging me sent me to tears.
So I never wanted to do it again.

But speaking about adoption is different.
I still get nervous, and I sometimes loose my words.
I am not ever perfect; I sometimes forget what I was trying to say, or get embaressed.
I some how get the confidence to speak about it though.

At the end of speaking about adoption I feel good.
It's like an emotional cleanse, or that feeling like you know you are supposed to be doing what you just did.
Maybe that's just it.

ahhhh, I wish I could have heard you! Maybe next time. If you can speak as well as you can write you are better than most!

Where were you that you were in the spotlight?? I know that you don't just lolly gag around, you just don't have the time. So I am sure that if you were there it was for a wonderful reason.

Cami,
Thanks so much for coming and speaking in my Ward. I know that was really hard and it was a HUGE audience, but you really did do a great job. See you at group.
