I recently had the opportunity to go back home for about a week. I was in Las Cruces, NM not only to visit my parents, but I was also on program as the main speaker for my childhood church’s Centennial celebration.
A lot of people — A big deal!
I was so glad when my 45 minutes speech (which I thought was 15 minutes) was over. I worked on that thing for nearly 9 hours and still wasn’t sure how it would be received. As I told the crowd “When you go home, you just have to get it right.”
Fortunately it went over well and I’m so humbled to have had that opportunity. Out of the many speaking engagements I do each year, this certainly will make the top three.
I also of course got a chance to indulge a little while I was in the Land of Enchantment. There’s nothing like the real deal. People always ask me what is New Mexico like? It’s like a lot of places. We have grocery stores and mountains. Yes, it gets quite cold.
The food is phenomenal!
You have to make your own fun at times but, isn’t that almost everywhere?
