I'm having a quiet few hours to myself tonight. I'm in St. Louis to be one of many judges for one of the middle school/junior high music festivals. Yeah...eight straight hours of saxophones. What more could a person want?
It's been a crazy week. It took a full day (and more) just to recover from our Easter gatherings at our local high school. Then I was asked to officiate the funeral of the mother of my good friend John. I've never officiated a funeral before, but I need to say that it was truly an honor to be able to do this for the family. It was an experience I'll never forget. In the same day (and only thirty miles away) my father-in-law was having heart surgery. Quite the hectic day!
So I'm taking a moment to catch my breath, read a few blogs, watch Survivor online, and contemplate life in a moment's notice.
Thanks Mel, for helping to hold me together this week. You walked with my heart in your hands and brought great comfort to my restless soul. You are truly my warrior princess!
