But my voice came back. I'm able to sing, and just in time because it's a big singing weekend. We have a choir number on Sunday and I'm singing in a trio. But here's the really big reason why:
I'm going to a Christmas sing along and Julie Andrews is going to be there.
DID YOU JUST READ THAT RIGHT!?!?!? Did I just type "sing along" and "Julie Andrews" in the same sentence? I DID!!!!! Literally two of my all-time favorite things are coming together. I've known about this since the spring and we purchased the tickets a while ago and yet I just can't think about it too much because my heart might explode. Or worse, my thinking about it jinxes the whole thing and it doesn't happen. No, this is happening! At 11:30 am on Saturday I will be in the Disney Concert Hall and Julie Andrews will be on stage and we will be singing Christmas songs together. And around that time you will feel a warmth in your heart, an inexplicable sense of gladness and good cheer. And you'll go to your window and look to the west and you'll see a glow on the horizon. That will be my joy. It will not be contained.
