Me!? Give a speech?!

Ya.. I know! Probably the same thing I thot when I was asked! "Are you sure you want me to talk!?"
I know I gave a talk with the Parent Council but this time is it different...
First I knew most  of those people...
Second, it is a college class of nurses...
In an actual college...
with nurses...
I am trying to wrap my head around it.
I was asked to be a guest speaker to this class and talk about the caregivers end of things. What we think, go thru... you know the stuff that they can't really teach.
My mouth said YES before my brain caught up to it! ☺
I am not worried about it per se, more apprehensive about what they will think of me and my stories... sigh
Honestly I still get a bit worried that people will think I am a complete idiot AND a bad mom for letting it all happen.

Anyhow, it will be in May and so I have lots of time to sit and think about what I am going to say. I am going write it all out and possibly make a PowerPoint Presentation to go with it... we will see what kind of time and creativity I can come up with before calving season starts!

Has anyone reading this life story learned something that they really never knew or were able to use with other survivors or caregivers? Have I wrote anything that made you go "wow!"? Any prayers, thots and/or ideas for this is greatly welcome.
