I’m not sure if it was the 60º+ weather of the past weekend (sure felt good) or just the idea of a little return to normalcy (whatever that is) but I have decided that this week I am going to set out on a few of the things I have been missing out on. Last Friday, I ventured out to get my first refill on my meds. A 90 day fill up… I guess I really am going to be on it for A LONG TIME, but it is for the best.
Later this afternoon, I am going to attend my first FCF board meeting since this all began (back in January… I refuse to miss more than 2). I am so excited to be able to get back and help get one of my favorite shows rolling along. I have finally come to the conclusion that thinking too much about auditioning for either The Wizard of Oz OR Annie (at another area theater) needs to take a backseat until I am 100% ready to go. Even then, I really want to focus on what lies ahead after I reach that goal. Still thinking about what that is going to be.
Thursday, I am going to my first voice lesson since January. K informed me that I picked the perfect time to do so. Her students are preparing for their annual recital and she was hoping that I would be back on my feet ready to go by then. I will pass along the details once I am confident that I will be strong enough to participate. God and everyone else knows I want to be but I am still being a bit realistic. It has nothing to do with my vocal ability; hopefully, my physical ability will be there as well.
AND FRIDAY…. MY FIRST GAME NIGHT SINCE JANUARY! I cannot wait until I see some of my friends whom I have not seen since the start of 2011. Even those I have seen since. Hopefully, I can convince a little buddy of mine that I do not live in the hospital. 😀
Goal setting and pushing forward just a bit surely will not impede my progress. After all… the doctor wanted me to go back to work the day after I was released from the hospital.
And in all this time, I forgot to wish my fellow Tangenteers a HAPPY THIRD BIRTHDAY! It has been a very fun and at times thought-provoking adventure and I truly enjoy continuing to get to know some of my best friends even better through their life experiences and thoughts! And WELCOME TO SPRING… it HAS been a long winter.

Children’s ministries! Youth group!! A regular acting role on Sunday mornings!!! Lots of fun to be had while serving Him!!!! Just a few suggestions, I have plenty more 🙂
Keep ’em coming, pal of mine! The regular acting gig ANYTIME sounds remarkable to me 🙂 The adoration of little ones is priceless. To paraphrase something a remarkable friend reminded me of earlier today: “those who have been given much will be asked of much.” I know that is not the exact quote, but I believe the intent is there.
“…From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” Luke 12:48
