Saturday night I had the privilege of going to Monkey Toe's gig. He is the drummer of a rock band that plays mostly local bars. I don't get the chance to hear him very often, so I consider it a treat when I have the opportunity to play "groupie." I love watching him play. Not only is music one of his passions, but he is also a very gifted musician. He's been playing the drums since he was a kid and he has been blessed with natural talent. It actually is what first attracted me to him. I was so amazed at the talent that this "young kid" had, that I wanted to get to know him. Now, 20 years later, I still get excited when I hear him play. I am very proud of him.
***I began writing this post two weeks ago and never finished, because life simply happens. Since then, we have been through Holy Week and Easter. They were incredible celebrations, made even better by the time we spent with family. Happy Easter Season to all of my family and friends. May you all be blessed with the gift of newness of life.
