It’s late and it’s been a longish day, but I just got home from choir not long ago and wanted to just say that I am LOVING it. It’s long and tiring but I don’t think I realized just how much I have missed music in my life. I love to sing. I love it. It honestly brings me so much joy.
I don’t know if listening to me brings anyone joy, but I enjoy it. (ha)
Our Christmas performance is next week and I’m really excited. The music our director chose this year is gorgeous and it seriously makes me emotional. We are singing this beautiful arrangement of Silent Night with a children’s choir, and I could barely make it through the song tonight. I have struggled to sing it without crying since my Gumpo (grandfather) passed when I was 16. He loved it, and every time I sing it I think of him and I just… miss him. So next week is you are there and see me crying like a crazy person while I’m singing that song, it’s because I’m singing for him.
We are also singing a song that I cannot stop listening to. There is just something about it that speaks to me. I’m completely in love with it.
Anyway. It’s late and I’m tired so I’ll write more tomorrow. But just… listen to that. It brings me peace… maybe it will bring some for you too. <3
