Moses had the right idea – Wherever He leads, I’ll go (cont.)

I am humbled. And I am amazed!

When I saw my name as the winner of the scholarship for She Speaks, I uttered some sort of noise. (I don’t think it was “y’all“)

I’ve sat here, at my computer, staring at the keys and suddenly have no idea what to write or say in regards to this.

I’ve been left speechless by the sweet kind words left by women who haven’t met me, yet have taken the time to encourage me and wish me well.

So, I’ll say thank you. Thank you, Lysa, for this opportunity to share my story. It is just beginning.

Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you.
