Last night I gave my best speech ever – to the Zonta Club Annual Founders’ Day Dinner in Guildford.
It was a special night. Not just for Zonta, when they remember their founders. But also it was Remembrance Day, when I always think of those who gave their lives that we might live in peace. And it was my mother-in-law’s birthday, Ruth. I never knew her, for she left this world before I even knew Rob. But every year on the 11th we think of her.
So to speak before these warm and generous women on such a day was a true privilege, and perhaps that’s what I was tapping into as I spoke of the story that they lived in Zonta, the story that has made them what they are.
And some of them came up afterwards glowing with pride at what they had created:-)
