I cannot believe that it is already the end of November in the CRAZIEST YEAR EVER!
Today just happens to be the 2nd birthday of my little Christmas Album, "Unexpected Hallelujah"!!!
I was hoping to celebrate starting last night by kicking off my Christmas performance season. I had arranged to perform a number of times at a great event on a beautiful stage playing an incredible piano.... and then new restrictions were announced by our provincial government and those plans went out the window.
Despite being VERY disappointed, I am trying to keep it all in perspective. Easier said than done, as I'm sure you know. So I thought I would list a few of the WONDERFUL things floating around in my mind right now...
♡. My song "Emmanuel (God With Us)" is already on the air again this year in a number of places! If you have a Christian radio station where you are, feel free to request it!
♡. I have really amazing, beautiful memories of my album release concert on this day 2 years ago!
♡. Soon I'll be able to wear the "All the Jingle Ladies" sweater I picked up in the summer at a thrift store! Yes, it has actual jingle bells on it!
♡. Not having a bunch of performances means more pajama and Christmas movie time for me...
♡. I'm healthy. I'm exhausted (public school teacher in a pandemic is no joke, people!), but I'm healthy!
♡. I'm working on a Virtual concert video and planning some fun things for my social media leading up to Christmas. Everything might be different this year, but what did Buddy the Elf teach us, class?? "THE BEST WAY TO SPREAD CHRISTMAS CHEER IS SINGING LOUD FOR ALL TO HEAR."
♡. Despite all the many challenges, 2020 has been a year of unexpected blessings. God is good.
So, there you go! Tell me...what are some positives in your life right now?
Keep an eye on my social media for my virtual concert and other shenanigans coming soon!
Sending love and warm holiday wishes...
