Guest Speaker

This is going to be a short and sweet one tonight.  Tomorrow is a big day.  I've been invited to be the guest speaker, yes, the guest speaker, at Arizona Country Club's Rally for a Cure golf tournament and luncheon.  So, being the responsible gal I am not, I left my speech writing until today, and I'm still fine tuning it as we speak.  My friend Michelle, who recruited me for this endeavor, gave me the biggest compliment.  She said I am like Phoenix's own Kelly Corrigan.  I mentioned Ms. Corrigan a couple posts ago.  She's a breast cancer survivor as well as an incredible author and public speaker.  Yikes, I better keep practicing.

I just did my first live practice for Nick in the bedroom and I'm not sure who teared up more, him or me.  I'm going to try to keep that in check tomorrow, I just can't look at him in the audience while I speak.  Wish me luck, I'll let you know how it goes.
