I just got a call from the gal who runs the VIP (Victim Impact Panel) for Clark County asking me to speak on their panel. Normally there’s an ‘interview’ process to see if my story is relevant to what they need, however when she heard a snippet of mine, she said she’d call me back later today with the schedule. She wants me hands down! No interview necessary.
Movin’ and shakin’ Chuck Goetschel, following your lead…………
Episode 20- Joan and John Miller | Happie Heads
Posted on February 19, 2018 by Michael Jensen
Joan and John are a delight. Witty, rambunctious, and sincere are just a few adjectives I could use to describe….
The clapping and thanks you’s I received from the audience were great last night at Oregon Impact’s Victim Impact Panel. However what was stupendous was the applause Husband got when Judge Greg Silver mentioned he is my transportation not only to each panel but all my other speaking engagements too!!
My chauffeur, my rock, my life……Husband!!!!
It’s very humbling to get applause after I’ve spoken and once again as Husband & I walk up the stairs to exit the auditorium.
It tells me lives were saved tonight!!!!
It so very gratifying when leaving a Victims Impact Panel where I have just shared my story, to have people shout out to me “You’re awesome.”
And know it’s not because of what I’ve accomplished since my TBI, it’s the message of hope and forgiveness I leave with them IN SPITE of my TBI!!
10 quarts of pears canned, kitchen cleaned, laundry done, & lunch eaten all before 11:00am! Now it’s a well deserved nap time ’cause I’m saving lives tonight!!
The interview Kelly Sharp and I had today with Joey Harrington went fabulous! He’s got to be one of the nicest guys you’d ever want to meet with a really quick sense of humor too. I found out I went to high school with his mother-in-law, and my brother-in-law Christopher Flury worked on her house! Small world for sure. The piece will be airing next Wednesday 10-11 at 4:00pm. He also gave me great contacts for speaking and said to use him as a reference, and talked about how to set me up to appear on national TV. It was a good, good, day!
WOW!! What a response yesterday from a member of the audience at the VIP. As I was at the top of the stairs, he climbed over the people in his row to shake my hand, kiss my cheek, and say “thank you so much, you were fabulous!”
My guess…………lives were saved!
This was a pretty cool thing to be presented with at the Trauma Nurses Talk Tough VIP last night. I’m truly living a Purpose Filled Life!!
