This coming week at work is going to be kind of unusual considering I do not currently work in a music-related field. I am a singer (ya think? I live in Nashville, after all!) and used to do some background, demo, and live gigs in town a lot more than I do now. Motherhood has taken priority out of necessity.
However, I have been blessed to be able to use my voice to touch lives right where I work. I can't even begin to describe how happy I am to have an outlet for my singing bug. Tomorrow, we are having an employee picnic, and I have been asked to perform during the afternoon for our associates. That oughta be a blast.
Then, next week I have been honored to be selected to go to Washington DC to perform for the Executive Teams from around the country for the hospital system I work for. I am really stoked about this opportunity and am beyond thankful for it.
I am excited to be able to do something more than the usual daily grind at work. It is things like this that give me that extra shot in the arm to keep pressing on when things get really tough.
I will report back on how it all goes...
P.S. On this day I raise a glass for my Daddy who would have been 70 (!) years old today.
