Test Scare Me!

My 7th Grade Science Teacher, Mr. Law,
Once Told My Mother,
"If I Ask Julia Every Question On The Test, She Can Answer Correctly & Without Hesitation.  But, When I Lay The Test Paper On Her Desk I Can See Her Tense & Freeze."

I Continue To Feel That Way About Test . . . Almost Any Test!

Even Medical Test . . .
I Mean Really, It's Not Like You Can Study For A Mammogram or EKG To Improve Your Final Grade.
But I Get The VERY Same "Test" Feeling!
My Mind Fills With The Same Thoughts. . .
What If I Don't Pass?
What If My Friends Think I Am Not As Smart As They Are?
What If The "Teacher" Thinks I Didn't Apply Myself?

I Know, I Know. . . How Ridiculous!
I'm A Grown Woman, Top-Of-My-Game,
Three Wonderful Children All But Grown & Out-The-Door,
Organized, Talented, Blessed By God . . . 

Uh Oh!!!
I Think I Found The Problem - I Might Be An...
(shhhh - don't tell)
With A Secret Fear Of Rejection and Failure.

Well, The Last Few Weeks Have Been Full Of Tests.

I Applied To Display & Sell My Items At Several Fall Shows/Bazaars/Festivals Throughout The Southern States, "Juried" Shows
You Know, Where You Send Them A Sample, They Evaluate Your Items And Determine If They Are "Good Enough" For Their Show.

Well, Guess What - I PASSED!
This Week I Received TWO Acceptance Letters!
The Southern Fried Festival and Downtown Bell Buckle Shows,
Both Recognized By The Southeastern Tourism Society As A Top 20 Event,
I Am Thrilled To Be A Part Of Both Events!
In The Next Few Weeks, I Will Be Receiving Another Grade...
This One In The Form Of A Product Review.
Lena, Over At Mom2MemphisAnd Ruby Will Be Reviewing
A Bounced Blessings Product.


Be Sure & Visit Her Often,
I Would Love For You To "Hold My Hand" As She Shares Her Opinion On One Of My Custom-Created Items.

In The Meantime, I Gotta Bounce. . .
There Is Much Creating To Be Done!
Gonna Need Lots Of  Pretty Things To Fill My Spaces Over The Next Few Months.

Thanks For Stopping By And Remember. . . 
Keep Bouncing!
