Happy Birthday Joseph!! Forty five years ago a very scared and young girl in Portland OR. gave birth to a beautiful baby boy who God guided into the hearts and arms of your loving parents. My birthday wish for you is the same as my wish for you everyday. Health, Happiness, and God’s graces for you and your family.
As your maternal birth grandmother would say: Be good to yourself! 🥰
I was talking to a volunteer at equine therapy and she said she had given her copy of Learning to Make Toast to a friend whose son had a brain injury. The mom read the part about when you were trying to make toast to her son, and her son burst into tears. He said it was the first time he’d ever had a way to explain to his mom what it was really like to have a brain injury.
THAT’S WHY I DO WHAT I DO!!! 🤟
My new speech “Putting The Calm in a Crisis” went really well today with the Portland Kiwanis Club. The people in this club have great energy and their questions were thought provoking. They are all about learning and it most definitely showed today. Ideas were tossed around that many people benefited from. I even got a referral from Connie Jean Shipley to one of the members in hopes of getting me speaking up at OHSU!
I’m looking forward to, and rehearsing my speech for this Wednesday I’ll be delivering at Civil Tongues Toastmasters. It’s about the importance of mentoring and how a particular friend and mentor in my life helped shaped me into becoming a better speaker. Thank you Susan Lehr!
