post Category: near drowning — mylifeasannie @ 4:53 pm — post Comments (10)

A reporter called my house this afternoon.  There have been five drownings in the city in the last week.  She wanted me to do an on-air interview about water safety.  I did it.  I know I look like a big dork.  If it gets just one persons attention and prevents one accident it will be totally worth looking like a dork.  I’m not mentioning the station, for those of you who are local… I don’t want you to see me looking like a dork!  UGH.

I did an interview last year with a new channel too.  It makes me cringe to watch it, it’s still on our tivo.  Matt makes fun of me every time!  He has promised not to make fun of me this time.  We’ll see.

Horaayy..there are 10 comment(s) for me so far ;)


I think it’s great that you are willing to do this annie. You are so right about the importance of getting even one person’s attention.
Great job!!!

I cannot imagine you looking like a dork. That is really a blessing to people that you would step out of your comfort zone and do that. Believing that GOD will use your voice for good. Believing for sweet Izzy’s healing.

Love in Christ,

I’m proud of you for doing it, and I’m quite sure you didn’t look like a dork!
