As I sit here thinking about the upcoming scholarship presentations I am looking forward to it with mixed feelings. Feelings of anxiety, fear, excitement and of pride. I have spoken only a few times in public (usually when it had to do with the Mutual Housing projects I was part of years ago).
I am proud that the Milford Democratic Town Committee chose to Honor Mom by forming the scholarship in her memory. It would mean a lot to Mom to know they thought so much of her and her commitment to community service. I am proud they asked me to present the scholarship to the kids. I am also anxious about having to open my mouth in front of these people that will include a great number of them, neighbors, and of course my sister. I also scared I will trip over my two feet.
Tonight my sister will be joining me and I am hoping that at some point today my brother will let me know if he will be able to join me Thursday for that presentation. He couldn’t make it for tonight’s due to “scheduling conflict”.
