Just a scary moment

Have you ever done something that you didn't want to do but knew you had to? Something that made you shake in your boots? Afraid that others would judge you and make you self conscious?

I did one of the things today that made me feel just that way. I got up at my church and spoke to the whole congregation. I was shaking so badly that I could barely stand or hold the microphone. I must say that it was easier when I was a kid in debate and drama. I had a lot less nervousness and didn't care so much what people thought.

In the end I did it and did better then I thought I would do. I did my part and they better not ask me to do that again for awhile. LOL

Now I must get back to work. I have to get ready for class tomorrow. My gosh, my life is so busy lately. DD is keeping me hopping with all the senior stuff, helping out others, church, my home work and then the ususal wife stuff. I need some good sleep.

IN the picture above you will see my lady Bug shaker for Pfatt this month. I think she turned out sweet. I am working on some new ones this week. Stay tuned and have a wonderful Monday.

Good for you, dear. My congregation is all of about 20 people if that and I know all of them, so I suppose I would not be so nervous...lmao.

Love the shaker!

Hey Mindy,
Thank you. Yes very difficult but did it.
Yes, little lady has a new home. She is in N.Y. getting tatoos as we speak. LOL

No this was about 300 people. My church is very large. I only know a handful of people. Scary! A small group makes me nervous. I don't appear shy but can be.
have a wonderful week.

Thank you Linda
The lady bug was one of my favorites for the year so far.
It was hard to do that at church but I did it.

Hi Pea..
I don't know that I could have gotten up and spoke in Church like that! I admire your "guts" :)..and I'm sure others were helped by what you had to say!

Phillane E'lee said...

Thank you much. It was difficult and if you could have seen me shaking you would have laughed for certain.
Now we ALL can't be amazon women but I want to know if you had both of the contacts in when you were peeping at my picture? LOL Your vision may have been blured! LOL
I don't wear glasses all the time. They are old lady glasses and Mr. Peapod teases me that I look like a librarian on steroids. LMAO.
Thank you my friend. Many more smiles lately. I think of you and yours as well. hugs((())) back

Thank you Candy.
It took a lot to get me to do it. But having done it was good too. I am not so afraid to speak to people in church. Folks have been coming up to me and telling me they liked what I said. So I guess I did good.
Now if I can get it to stop snowing... LOL
Have a good one.
