A Very Sunny Sunday

I decided to say yes to someone at church who wanted someone to sponsor her as a member. I got up in front of the congregation and tried to condense a life into something less than 3 minutes long. It was hard to do and I felt like I failed badly, as I missed so much about her and I spoke far too fast compared to when I was doing deacon things, but it's been nearly ten years. So I shouldn't have been so surprised.

Ah well. But she said thank you, John said that I could be understood, and Jenny and Tonya both said that I did well enough to make the lady interesting without droning on and on about her interests. So... I guess it turned out well.

Like so many things. I guess that internal critic says nothing I do is good enough. I just have to trust that when I try it's enough, and I feel good about it NOW, so that's good enough for me.
