I'm a day late, I know, but I wanted to send these greetings out to all of my mother friends. You have achieved remarkable success. The greatest success there is I think. And it is completely, absolutely and unconditionally free.
I received wonderful wishes from both of my children by phone, and they sent gifts. Beautiful roses and a card and call from Lee; a parcel from Mary, which included organic dark roast coffee, seeds for plants that attract hummingbirds and butterflies for my garden, tea, a necklace and earrings and a card. I will be seeing Lee this Thursday, if all goes well. Honey is going on a road trip! More later, as the date approaches.
Yesterday was eventful. At Church yesterday morning we sang River in Judea, which is a fabulous gospelly-type anthem. To me, the words speak of music we make and in the world around us; how music can offer peace and hope. Indeed. Oddly though, as the service progressed, I was feeling more and more unwell. By the time I got home from church my fever was around the 100 degree mark. To the couch, where worries started swirling about missing the Carillon concert. I medicated myself and waited. I called Karen and told her that I would do my best to be there for 3. I arrived at the Church at 2:58. I did the concert and was back home before 4. My concert hat, scarf and clothing were fever-drenched. But I did it. And I am so glad. I think we sang well. I believe it was beautiful and rewarding. The audience was lovely and appreciative. The house the good.
So, today, it's raining again. We must need the rain. It will be an easy few days while I get ready to travel to Prince Edward Island - The Island. I love The Island!
Peace to you all. Find some music that inspires you. Listen to it at least twice. Build up your hope and resolve. Travel through your day humming or whistling that song!
