That's really cool. Sometimes Christmas brings out the best in people. Merry Christmas, April!

These last couple of weeks and a half has been very tough, to say the least. A week ago this past Wednesday, a very good friend of mine died suddenly and this past week, it has been a struggle to even get out of bed some days.

For months now, I had already been planning to go to my old high school's choir annual variety show today as my choir director is retiring at the end of May and any and all choir alumni were invited to come and be a part and sing a couple of songs with the current choir students as well as sing a surprise commissioned music piece that was written especially for our beloved director.

Earlier this week, I had almost decided not to go because I was feeling so "snowed" under emotionally, mentally, and physically. I just didn't think I could make it, but a couple of days ago, God laid it on my heart that I really needed to do this. So I decided to listen and go. I was still feeling down today, but once I got there, everything changed. The alumni met for a rehearsal of the surprise piece we were doing for Mr. Talley. After the rehearsal, I went and got a bite to eat with my mom and a friend who came with us, and then we went on back to the church where the show was going to be ( one of the really big places in town to accommodate everyone). We walked in and Mr. Talley was one of the first people I saw. My mom told me I should go and say hello just in case it was too busy to do so afterwards. So I did. Having graduated almost 20 years ago, I didn't know if he'd remember me, but he did. He wasn't sure if he remembered my name and said, "I'm thinking, April?" And I was like, "Yeah!" And he said, "Really??" He was surprised he got my name right. :lol:

To say he was surprised by the surprise piece the alumni sang for him would be an understatement (it was directed by a fellow choir alumni who had gone on to become a high school choir director herself). Then, Mr. Talley directed us, as well as the current choir students, in "The Lord Bless You and Keep You" and "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". Singing under his direction brought back a flood of wonderful memories and made my heart swell. :wub::) The audience gave us and him a standing ovation, and we on the stage joined in on the applause for him, and he, as well as many of us, were in tears. :'( :D

He made such a huge impact on my life and it was truly an honor to have been in his choir all those years ago and to have gotten to be a part of his retirement tribute today. :) And to think I almost missed out. I'm so grateful to God that He urged me to go. Not only did I get to help bless Mr. Talley today, but it was also healing medicine to my broken heart. :)

Thanks, Pat. I'm doing better. Getting to reunite with my choir director helped a lot, and this week has definitely been better all around. It will take time, but by God's grace, I will heal and so will my friend's family. :)
