Day 699: Happy New 2012!

Where we live, three different congregations share the same building.  So, we rotate starting times each year.  Last year we met at 1 PM.  Today we began a year of meeting at 9 AM.

I definitely prefer going to church in the morning, but the adjustment today was a little rough.  We were a tad late.

But, we made it.  And as I sat there, I realized how wonderful it felt to start the new year off in church, worshiping my Savior Jesus Christ.  And that was a sweet Joyful Moment for me there.

Today has actually been a really nice day, with plenty of Joyful Moments.  But, I'm just going to share one more.

As you know, Sweet P has been taking violin lessons for quite some time.  Just over two years.  She is learning via the Suzuki method.  She has been on Book 1 this whole time.  Tonight, she finally learned the last two measures of the last song in the book.  It still has quite a bit of polishing needed, but it's a super long song.  And she has the whole thing memorized!  She has worked so hard to get to this point and I was seriously busting with pride for her.

Huge Huge Huge HUGE Joyful Moment for us both.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that are HUGE!

Oh, and a Happy New Year!

I'm very proud of Sweet P; it represents countless hours of work for her (and her mama). I can't wait to hear her play again.

My JM was similar - Your Aunt Becky and her mom gave us a mini-concert, playing 3 duets on the cello and piano. We loved it.
