What a Week!

There couldn’t have been a more perfect birthday! It started on Monday when a group of my students came over and sang to me some songs from a cantata I had written a number of years ago and not heard performed. It was so wonderful.

That was just the beginning of the many surprises my dear husband and children and friends pulled off! I’ve decided men are like good cheese, they get better with age! He surprised me with a family party on Tues. night and a huge party with friends on Wed. night. For the Wed. party he arranged for four of the Young Ambassadors from BYU to come sing to me. Imagine this 60 year old woman sitting there while four handsome young men in black tuxes and ties sing Franki Valli’s "Sherrie Baby."

But the best part was watching everyone have such a good time. If you look down you’ll see on my 100 things list that I love watching people have a good time. And that night the food was fantastic, friends from every walk of my life were laughing and visiting and enjoying, and I soaked in the good vibrations!

But that didn’t end it all. The next night my TA (that’s teaching assistant) came over with a friend and presented me with a book that had greetings from many of my past students. What a way to start a new decade! I’m still floating.
