Who knew what a ‘worldwide pandemic’ could do to one’s speaking schedule!?!? 2020 brought so many changes but I’ve never been afraid of change. Thankfully. I’ve given several presentations via Zoom (Larimer County Genealogical Society in Colorado, Writer’s Chat/int’l forum, and Greater KC Assn. of Family & Consumer Science Educators) and have more on the docket (Heartland Family History Conference 2021). Several local/area events have been postponed, as well (Moundridge Arts Council Gramma & Me Workshop, and First Mennonite Church Women’s Ministry event). Patience, for all of us, has become more than a virtue — it’s a way of life. Many events that had been scheduled are ‘in limbo’ to happen whenever those organizations feel comfortable rescheduling…until then, it’s all good!
