Satisfaction…Let the Sound Soar

In December of 2016 I sang for my father’s funeral.  My voice, my song was the best gift I could give to family and friends during a time of sorrow…around 45 minutes of music that, while given with extreme love, carved a hole in my heart and left me exhausted.

Weeks later I found that I still didn’t have the energy to sing.  That is, until I had the opportunity to perform at a company function for around 1300 people.

I was only on stage for a few minutes but it didn’t matter.

I welcomed the opportunity to sing in a circumstance where I was joyful, and, not grieving.

The lights went down, I walked on stage, hit the strings and let my voice soar.

I gave a final, definitive strum.

The audience clapped in rhythm. and roared their approval.

Satisfaction.  I was able to give my voice and my song again.

I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!
