It’s pretty sad when you have to vacuum out the washing machine because you forgot to check your pockets for tissues before you did the laundry.🙄
My speech today, “It’s All About Choice” at my Civil Tongues Toastmasters Club went very well. I got lots of great evaluations and really good suggestions to make it even more powerful. I’m looking forward to my next speech this Wednesday Sept. 11th titled “The Universe is Expanding” Come join us at the PDX State Office Building, 800 NE Oregon – room 1C on Wednesday’s from 12:05 to 1:00.
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 oral surgery went very well and now it’s healing time. Pain pills, plenty of rest (hard NOT to do on the pain pills 😴) and lots of gauze packets. Liquid meals and it all works!!
Husband’s taking very good care of me 💞
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!
