Extraordinary Bella

I feel incredibly at home on stage sharing the most intimate details of my life. However, self-doubt settles in the moment I utter my last word. Having no control over the way in which my presentation is received, I often struggle to let go of my insecurities.
During a recent fundraiser for the Autism Society of N.C. , I had the honor of meeting the talented Miller family. As we exchanged pleasantries, I noticed Bella drawing on a pad. I learned she was in 7th grade, and had lofty aspirations for her future. As I was introduced to speak, I took a deep breath, suppressed any lingering doubts, and confidently grabbed the microphone.

People usually applaud when I am finished, and if I am lucky, I might even share a few hugs. This particular evening, as I made my way back to my seat , I discovered a single sheet of paper on the table. While I was addressing the audience, Bella had created an image of how she saw me. Through teary eyes, I took in the sketch of a confident woman holding a microphone, glittering stars framing her face, and a heart clearly displayed on her chest. A young girl that I had only known for a few brief moments, had clearly captured my bold, audacious life vision.
Professionally framed and proudly displayed...this portrait is my daily reminder of who I am, and what I am trying to accomplish. Sweet Bella used her amazing gift to affirm my divine path. I will be forever grateful for the angel that brought such clarity and illumination to my world.

Some people speak and motivate and inspire, and you clap and cry and stand in ovation and thank the Lord that you are sitting in the audience because the person speaking is so gifted that she has transformed you in an hour. All signs point to the fact that you will be attending her book signing within two-years' time as she shares her light, her grace, her humor and her passion with the world.
