You, my readers, are awesome.

Remember last week when I was interviewed by Stephen Hopson of Adversity University? Based on how many comments “Part 1” got, it broke his comment record. How cool is that?

The second part of the interview is now live.

As I mentioned earlier, the first question of part two was the most difficult for me to answer. When you read “my story” you’ll understand why. Hint: It’s about adversity in my life.

Another question I answer is: “What was your most embarrassing moment”
and “What is the biggest/boldest dream you have for yourself?”

Let’s see if we can top the comments from last week and create a new record for Adversity University

The name of the post is:Stephen Hopson Interview With Barbara Swafford, Part II of II.

I’ll see you there!

    Hi Mike – Thank you. Yes, some of those questions did make me think, and dig deep into my past.

    I just want to say, Barbara, how very wonderful it has been to get to really know you better through these interviews over at Adversity University. You truly are a loving, caring person – and every time I read something you’ve written, or answered – this point is just driven home more.

    So…awesome job answering what were some tough questions.

    Hi Barbara – that was a great interview, with some tough questions. I am still laughing at the story about the gorilla.

    Hi Lance – Your comment on the interview brought tears to my eyes. You words make me realize what I do is serving a purpose. Hearing your words of appreciation always warm my heart. Thank you.

    Hi Catherine – Yes, the gorilla experience was embarrassing, but I laugh at it now.

    Hi Jannie – I agree, some of those embarrassing moments are best left in the past. The one I shared is rather funny (although it wasn’t at the time). 🙂

    Hi Panther – Thank you for reading the interview and commenting. I just left Stephen’s blog where I caught up on the replies.

    Hi ru4real – Welcome to the BWAB community. Now you know who I am. It makes me happy to hear I’ll see you here again. Thanks for subscribing.

    Hi Davina – Thank you. You’re so sweet. Yup! I caught that hug. 🙂

    Hi Jennifer – You’re welcome.

    It truly was a great interview…Orphan stage is so hard to deal with – your description was marvelous and your words are inspiring.

    Thanking your mentors is always a pleasure to my ears and you are so good at it – and sharing their message will make them mentors to others now too.

    I think this blogging world is truly opening up conversation and enhancing communications about things we all need to know about.

    I would have asked if your mentors had any “magic” cures for problems or headaches or bug bites?…I think we are loosing some of that good information these days too?

    Thank you for writing and sharing even the tough stuff.

  12. Gosh, this interview has sure been an emotional roller coaster! The part about your mom was very hard for me to read, though I’m sure not as hard as it was for you to write. And then there were parts that were funny and uplifting. If this were a movie, it would be up for an Oscar!

    Barbara … here’s a big texas hug for ya! Great interview, tough subjects to talk about but was done with grace. Humor and love will always survive along with teaching us life’s lessons.

    Hi Patricia – You’re welcome. Yes, mentors are wonderful to have in our lives, From them we can learn so much and carry their message forward.

    Hi Hunter – An Oscar? Ahhh…I don’t think I would go that far.

    Hi Linda – Thanks for the hug and kind words. I’m looking at your most recent post (CommentLuv) and laughing as it says, “Greens for you”. So I got a Texas hug and greens. 🙂
