A Case of Nerves

Vonya woke up with her stomach doing flip flops. It felt like something was fluttering around inside her! “Mom!” she called. “I don’t feel good.”

Vonya’s mother came to the bed, leaned down, and asked what was the matter.

“I don’t know,” said the girl. “I woke up thinking about the talent show. It’s today, and I’m going to have to sing in front of a hundred people. All of a sudden my stomach feels AWFUL!”

With a smile, her mother patted Vonya’s hand. “You’re just nervous. Those are only butterflies in your stomach. It’s a feeling some people have when they are nervous. Don’t worry. Just practice your song while you get dressed. Keep practicing whenever you have a chance, even if it’s only in your head. You’ll be fine.”

“Really?” Vonya asked. Before her feet where on the floor, the words of the song formed in her mind. Then, singing, she walked out of her room. She would be fine. The noise from her singing was sure to make those little butterflies go away!
