This is my new cello!
I am so excited!
I bought it yesterday from a previous owner. I know it is not a high end super fancy one but I feel confident that she gave me a nice instrument for a fair price. I used a small portion of my inheritance and I feel that Daddy is smiling his excitement.
Oh my.....I just got this flash image of him dancing in heaven with that beautiful heavenly sound everywhere and I can be here making a reflection of that sound............
I begin my lessons with an instructor tomorrow but I couldn't wait that long. I jumped online this morning and found a "lessons 101" website to play around with. It is filled with all sorts of music theory which is great because sight reading has always been a downfall for me.
Aaahhhhhh!!!!! I am so excited!
But I must give attention to some other things today as well.
I had offered to head up a fundraiser for Puddin's advanced choir. They are touring in the spring to Disneyland (rough right?) and need to cover expenses. Today is the day to pick up products and disperse them to customers. Also we have a conference going on at church this weekend and I am helping to organize host homes for the 18 out of state guest speakers coming.
How can I do everything? I am almost done with it so it is okay.
Sadly, my brother had a bicycle accident over the weekend and broke his collar bone in 4 places. Consequently, my sister-in-law is off work caring for him and I miss out on having my Angel-girl to chatter with. That gives me a lot of time in the day to do what needs to be done.
How is my brother? He is doing really well. The doctor has his shoulder taped up and says there possibly won't be a need for surgery. I went to see him yesterday and he really looks good. The swelling is down and I didn't see any discoloration or bruising. God was definitely with him. He didn't have a helmet on when he fell going downhill but there isn't a single scratch on him.
My brother just texted me and asked if I am going to name my cello. He says it is too beautiful an instrument to be called "it". He is right. I was just pondering that same thought. Hmmmm.....what to call it.....
"A rose by any other name....."
Blessings to you today!
