I am doing the happy dance with you that you faced your doubts/fears and went for it!!!
You were rewarded not only with a wonderful time for you, your daughter and sisters...
...but you proved something to yourself, and are stronger now than ever!
Distraction is among the most effective of anxiety coping skills.:)

"Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles...it empties today of its strength."
