but never had the chance...is to sing in a choir.
At. St. A's there just wasn't enough room over there for me, and practice was at the wrong time no matter when because we lived too far away.
In High School, there were the award winning "Sophisticats" which I never even tried out for. I think I got discouraged from doing that, and I ran Cross Country instead. Now I understand what it's like to not have enough money to pay for kids' activities, and Sophisticats would have been expensive.
But now I'm here. And St. M's has a wonderful sounding choir, and I went to practice tonight. We live so close that I could run my kids home after vespers, and come back for practice.
I'm over the moon about it. Now I just hope I have the energy for it. We were practicing music for the Canon of St. Andrew, sung during the first week of Lent. The words were a good reminder of what is coming and boy, do I need it ever!
And then when practice was over I realized: Perhaps this is a really impetuous time of year to start singing in the Choir. But being impetuous is what I'm good at.
Please, God, let my back keep getting better...
At any rate, I'm excited about finally being in choir.
