For those of you who read my post last Monday you probably thought when you read this title “Oh no…what happened this Monday? ” Don’t deny it! You were thinking that! 🙂 But that’s ok. I can definitely tell you, today didn’t feel very Monday-ish (Is that a word?). It was totally opposite from last Monday! I don’t have much time (Paper due by tonight and I haven’t started!) but I will share with you some of the blessings.
I woke up this morning praying to the Lord about my day. Afterall, without his help, it would end up just like last Monday for sure! I left the house at 8:30 and went down to the church to piano practice. I’ve been practicing SO much this week preparing for my recital. Let’s just say, it paid off! I went to lessons today kind of hesitant. After all, this is it! I played for my teacher, and she barely critiqued it! She had nothing but good things to say about it! Praise the Lord! Also, I had shared with some of you my reserves about going to school as a piano major. I feel I am not going into this with tons of experience, and with my ignorance, thought I was WAY below most of the other piano majors. This is not a competition thing for me, rather the insecurity in my level of ability and really what’s ahead for me as I go to college. I mentioned this to her and she assured me that most of the piano majors aren’t even at my level when they first come in. Boy, did that make me feel better! That in and of itself boosted my confidence. (Insert huge smile here) I didn’t do much playing at lessons today, mostly talking. But it’s what I needed. She really helped me focus on where I want to go with my piano education and how I can get the best education for what I want to do, which is teach piano. I’ll explain more about all that in another post.
As I walked out of Hodson Hall I breathed a whiff of freshly cut grass. Oh, how I love thee!!!! SPRING! Well, almost. I then headed to choir which was so fun. Not the heading over part. 🙂 But the choir part. I was able to get acquainted with another girl who is a piano major (There are only six of us) and we seem to have a lot in common! She is also a new teacher so that was fun to swap stories. I look forward to getting to know her better since we’re doing a duet this next quarter. Praying for the Lord to open up a door to talk about spiritual things.
I then went to my Oral Surgeon appt. This was not a good time of my day. Learned it’s WAY expensive to have my wisdom teeth extracted. But…it needs to be done. And soon! It’s really getting painful.
(In between all these things there are numerous little busy things filling in the time.) To end my day I went to the Ladies Bible Fellowship. Mrs. S. taught a wonderful devotion on friendship! It just brought my day to a wonderful close as I talked with friends and was encouraged by them. Now, I am off to write a paper. Only three papers left to write in this quarter! Woohoo!!! 🙂
