I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
I want that cello. I want to be a professional musician. I just want to be happy with my only passion.
San Francisco Youth Symphony, here I come! I’m going to practice and I’m going to get in. It’s such a great opportunity to finally be challenged as a musician and I’m excited. Time to practice until my concerto and scale are perfect. LOL It’s crazy how this little thing can get me so excited for life!!
I miss every damn moment. The sleeping, the bus, the heat, the tiredness, the friends, the music, and the country. Why didn’t I love every moment like I am loving them now. I’m too stupid. I wanted to rush around. Oh well. I’m learning.
Take me back and leave me there. I’ll find a way to survive; I’ll make it work, I always do.
It’s hard to describe one of the biggest parts of your life in such a short write-up. Tell me how you can describe comfort to the point that one can taste and feel it. I’ve always felt at home around you whether we’re at home or in a different country. Like the cabin. We were in a completely new place, and I felt like I grew up there because, not only were we with family, but I was with you. I slept just as well, if not better there; that’s how at home I felt. I always feel like the shoe just fits.
You’ve supported me more than I imagined. My last track meet. You had a set plan and an agenda that you were going to follow that afternoon. The way that you were so determined to be there early as to not miss my race has always stayed with me. You wanted to see me run my last races of high school, and I thank you for cheering and going every time you could.
You work so hard so that I could go to Valley for all those years. Not even a million-dollar yearly salary would amount to the effort you have put in to make sure we have the absolute best. I never really say thank you, but I did my best in everything so that you could see your work was worth it. We have everything we have because of you and mom, thank you.
