I am so grateful to Nichole Beaudry and Margaret Andrews for this opportunity. I am so awed by the women I shared this moment with, for the chance to peek into their hearts, and feel of their spirits. I am grateful for the talent of Sarah Maren, who captured these precious moments with her gift of photography. There's also the lovely Lisa Smiley, who took lovely head shots for us, and Sherri Kuhn who gave us the support we needed.
Of course, I am so blessed to have a husband who supports me in my endeavors, and two daughters who inspire me, love me, and show me the way. I have so much to be grateful for, and am filled with joy.
Words can't do this experience justice. So I will let Sarah Maren's photos, and my little instagramed moments share with you, a piece of what it was like.
I encourage you to share your story next year, when Listen To Your Mother rolls back into town. We all have stories, and we all benefit when they're shared.

A few, last notes.
I quite enjoyed all the speakers from my cast. I found it interesting how my family connected with the different pieces. My husband and my daughters couldn't stop laughing listening to lovely Laura Meehan's "She Needs Groceries." My husband stopped to speak with wonderful Margaret Andrews, for "Avocado Green and Other Things That Are Wrong, after the show." My sweet, sensitive 8YO sobbed through, and loved Kim Prior's "The Monster."

ps. I would ask you what you thought of mine, but am deciding I'll just keep that a rhetorical thought. *deep breath*
