Wow, Just Wow

Back in 2009 (I think) I wrote an essay for an NPR progam called “This I Believe.” I forgot all about it, and then last year I received an email from Dan Gediman, the Executive Director of the program. My essay had been chosen to be published in their upcoming book This I Believe: On Motherhood. I was flabbergasted. Their books end up on top ten lists! We corresponded, he sent me the edits (didn’t change much), and then he told me the book would be out in March of this year, and I’d receive a copy. Once again, I forgot all about it. I suppose it was one of those “I’ll believe it when I see it” issues. You know, my self-confidence is just so high (insert sarcasm font here).

So today Greg brings in the mail and hands me a package. I opened it, and there it was…the Book! No, not just one book, but two! I thought “Oh cool.” Then I opened it and felt like I was 16 or something…”Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Look there’s my name! In print! In a freaking book, a potentially best seller book. Oh my God! There’s my chapter! There’s my name again!” I was actually flapping my arms! (What a dork).
