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!!! 🤟
I’m having oral surgery at 10:30am today. The paperwork reads, ‘no food or drink six hours prior to surgery, and wear comfortable clothing’. I put on a pair of my running pants and for some reason, they didn’t feel comfortable. I HAD THEM ON BACKWARDS.
And she’s off…………………
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!
