Yesterday my choir had a performance in a city an hour and a half away. I admit I felt a twinge of anxiety when I stepped into our school’s new minibus as the driver. I am a farm girl and have driven a wide variety of vehicles, but this thing is big!
As we pulled onto the interstate a silence rolled over the bus and the rhythm of the road settled in. I enjoyed a long, un-interupted moment admiring the beautiful blue sky as white whispy clouds danced before my eyes. The sun warmed my face, my whole being, even though the day was a chilly 30 degrees. In most circumstances this moment would have been the best thing about the day. But there was more.
My vocal ensemble participated in a choir festival where approximately 250 students gathered together to share their love and passion for music. I observed joy on their faces during each activity of the day, culminating in excited chatter as they relived the wonderful experiences of the day.
I was blessed with two simple pleasure treasures yesterday! What did you treasure yesterday?
