Adios Comfort Zone!

A few months ago, I lived one of my bravest moments. No--make that SEVERAL of my bravest moments. Here's how it played out...

Wrote a very personal story about my sister

Auditioned with said story for Listen To Your Mother Atlanta 

Made the cut! Rehearsed with some of the finest storytellers in Atlanta

Performed on stage in front of lots of people on April 26th

Two months later, I sit here on the couch feeling almost as nervous as I did on every single one of the above occasions. Today, I am being brave AGAIN and sharing my LTYM video. Let me add that to my list.

Sharing my video, my story, my personal moment in time, my writing, my life with the world

Now the real question is....will I watch the video? I don't know yet. I started twice. Maybe I'll watch it this weekend or next month or today or never. Doesn't matter really. It is there waiting for me when I am ready. 

I really do hope you will watch and I hope you will feel the love I have for my sister and the love she had for us. I hope it makes you smile even though it will likely also make you cry.  
I also hope you will watch the videos of my fellow cast members. Their pieces are all beautiful, just like their authors. 

Since I'm already in tears, thanks for reading My Mommy Reads. Thanks for sharing in our moments. 

Thank you T Rowe Price for sponsoring the videos. Thank you Jana and Miranda for being amazing, supportive producers who encourage and live BRAVE. 

Share your own brave moment with us!

  1. Beautiful story! Thanks for sharing. I have three sisters, and I don't tell them enough how much they mean to me. Thanks for reminding me to let them know how much I love them. We're not promised tomorrow.

  5. Thanks for sharing your story. You have such a beautiful voice in your writing. I'm sure that your sister knew how much you loved her, and you just inspired us to remember to tell our family members how much we love them each day. Your sister's memory will live on in the beautiful stories that you continue to share with Turner and Audrey. Yes, I watched the other videos too. You are a gifted, inspirational group who made me both weep and laugh.
