The Adventure I Call Life

I had the honor and pleasure of singing at the Midtown Key Club in Macon this past weekend. The experience was vivacious!! I enjoyed the "high" feeling that I had after I got off the stage. Up there, I was nervous, but I felt the nervousness leaving me as time went on in the song (I think I was feeling the prayers of my friends in the audience). Why did I do it? I did it for a change, something new, and different, and out of my comfort zone. It is an experience that looks like it may actually take me somewhere (The pianist has been in touch with me about putting a song list together!!!) All in all, I am thankful for the courage and grace that Christ gave me; and also for my friend and vocal coach, Chassity, for her unending direction. Also, I am thankful to all of my close friends for their encouragement in my time of anxiety (every day leading up to the show..) LOL

The car hunt continues and in that, I have learned a lot about myself. My hopes go up REALLY quickly, but it is also hard to let me down! Now how is that?!??! LOL! I get excited about every half decent car there is, and then pick myself up as good as new when I find that the car was a scam, or unreliable, or out of my price range. Either way, I pray that God's will be done, so that I end up with the right car.I am not too proud to buy an "older" or "used" car, but it has to be something reliable, and very "me." I can tell you now, the things that float my boat are: a sunroof, leather seats, heated seats, WORKING AC, a dope sound system, bluetooth for telephone, good gas mileage, and a just sexy car all around! This whole car buying thing is really teaching me patience. I need a car in the next few weeks, and all of the good ones are in ATL with my family. I am here, and the cars are there. I have to wait patiently until someone (mom, dad, or DJ)  gets off work to go see my potential car and then trust their judgement after the test drive. However, having a new car by the weekend would be sweet!!!

UC update- all is well. I am on my way to a full recovery! PTL! Every day I feel....well normal... I had some blue cheese that messed me up the night of my gig, but other than that all has been well. I have been eating lettuce and tomatoes, and some cheese and ice cream! Whooooo hoooo!!! {Joy in the little things}

Speaking of which, and to close out the night, I want to mention a few (10) small things that have happened in my life lately that I have seen as precious moments with Christ, or random things that are meant to make me smile: 1) Today I got caught in the rain. TWICE. ON my way to and from the same meeting! I was DRENCHED! Folder, wallet, keys, hair, clothes. You name it. But I was still as happy and content as can be! A random guy pulled up in a truck and offered me a ride, and then offered to buy me a phone for the remainder of the time that he was in town so that he could call me. (becuase I told him I don't give out my number).... it truly made me smile. 2) My new friend and fellow co-worker Mary left a sweet note in my box thanking me for throwing the funnel cake party! 3) Anna B. bought me lunch today out of the blue after I coached our (potentially) final swim lesson. 4) The farmer's market is tomorrow!!! 5) I may be dropping my summer finance class. 6) Shay and I did dinner and skating on Saturday night.. A BLAST! 6) I started reading "50 Shades of Grey" last night. 7) Simone paid me a surprise visit on Sunday! 8) I had a friend pop up at my door simply to give me a purely beautiful and much needed hug. 9) I'm still on a high about my best friend's new relationship with Christ! 10) I was invited to a Mary Kay Makeup party and received a free facial and had an amazing time! I now await my oil mattifier in the mail!!

Anyways.... it is time for me to close my eyes and enjoy a great nights rest! Much love, and thank you so much for reading! Grace and peace....
