Double Duty

I thought it ironic that I am beginning an AB book using the Sound Of Music as part of the book. Last night on the family channel what do you think was playing? Of course, The Sound Of Music. Confirmations, they are wonderful things, aren't they. Plunge in with both feet. My first
pages are very simple, although, I did put a niche in the back for my
page.
There are 7 artists doing this RR. Three in England, one in Canada and three in USA. There were 7 VonTrapp family children. The number 7 represents perfection and completion. Did you know there are only 7 musical notes?! Julie Andrews is an actress that always inspires me when I see her perfom. I loved her in Princess Diaries and of course she was wonderful in the Sound of Music.
Reading more about Fanny Crosby -
she was a wonderful poet and wrote this poem in regard to her blindness:
Oh, what a happy soul I am,
Although I cannot see!
I am resolved that in this world
Contented I will be.
How many blessings I enjoy
That other people don't,
To weep and sigh because I'm blind
I cannot and I won't!

Today I will leave home for work at 10am and probably not get home until 11:30 pm. I work a double shift. My hubby and youngest son and his girl friend are driving to the beach to be in church service with our oldest son. I wish I could be there too. But I will be there in spirit. My prayers will go with them. My son attends a large church, they have a large number of 18 - 25 year olds on Thursday night's - around 700. So for him to play for their service was a big deal. He is very humbled by it all.

Wow, what a long work day. I love the sound of music. When my girls were growing up we watched it at least once a year. Now, I watch it with my oldest granddaughter.
