Welcome to the first installment of Self Esteem Sunday.
Melody over at Pennies In My Pocket wanted to get all braggy about her sweet self, so she came up with a perfect way to mask her bragginess.......she asked all of us to get braggy along with her!
Since I am so totally full of myself I stepped right up to the plate on this one. Ok, I'm not really that full of myself, I'm actually kind of into the whole self loathing thing......but every now and then someone says something to me that does put a little bit of sunshine right into my stone cold heart.
That very thing happened just yesterday. Before I get to the braggy moment a little bit of back ground. I am the chair person for the 2nd largest fundraiser at my youngest daughters school.
This fundraiser is a beast, but a lot of fun to be involved with.
Since this is my last year at the school I found an unsuspecting go-getter of a mom to co-chair the event with me. She had all these idea's of how she wanted to improve the fundraiser and draw in more people. After being on the craft fair committee for 7 years her idea has been brought up and we sane parents knew it would just create a baby beast to go along with the momma beast so no one ever took it on. But who am I to crush newbie enthusiasm! I'm a live and learn kind of woman.
The beast of a fundraiser is two weeks away and my co-chair is starting to realize that baby beast is much more beastly than she ever imagined. After several back and forth emails between the two of us she called me on the phone. She called to thank me for all the support and fabulous guidance that I have been giving her over these past few months. She praised my organizational abilities and said she hoped that when she takes over she does as good of a job as I have done. So sweet and so nice to hear.
I'll toot my horn and say that I am pretty good at this kind of stuff. I take my volunteering very seriously and even though I sometimes doubt my abilities, it is always nice to have someone remind you that you got skills!!!
So let's hear it girls.........take Melody's lead and get all braggy about your bad self.
