My recital preparation came to a satisfying end last night. Everything went very well and I was excited for all the people that could be there (it didn't look like a very big group from on stage, which was fine). I actually had fun while I was playing, and I was so glad that people really enjoyed the music. It was also nice to prove to myself that I could do this without the nervousness getting in the way too much.
Thank you so much to Mom and Dad and Heather and Holly and Lynola and Sarah and Mrs. Grimm and Amanda and Nate and Ruth and Jameson C. and Mrs. Rynders and Michelle O.
