I spoke for the Rotary Club today in Forest Lake.  As I was getting ready to leave for my talk, Jordan met me at the door with a pack of peanut butter crackers in hand. 

He held them up to me with special instructions, "Here is a snack for you today, Mom.  For when you go to your speech."

Immediately I thanked him.

He continued, "I’ll put them in your bag for you."

"That sounds good." I answered.

One last detail, "If you have trouble opening them, you can give me a call."


Then the big question, "Can I go with you and help you with your speech, Mom?"

Bending down for a big hug I explained, "You can not go this time, Jordan.  But, there will be a day when you will come and help me with a speech."

And that was not a lie or trick to get out of the house fast. I honestly believe my children have a powerful story to share and someday they will have an opportunity to share it.
