Ten On Tuesday

I am so very thankful for:

1. Firefighters.
2. CDF specifically, fighting wildfires that took over 60 homes Sunday in my town. One guy in the news was mad at them for not saving his...it could have been a lot worse and a lot bigger. Thing is, he kept saying "I was watching it when it started and it was getting closer and I was wondering where they were" but did he call? Makes me wonder if everyone else just thought someone else must have called by now...

3. Music, and hard core musicians.
4. The honor to get to sing with them.
5. The honor of directing a choir of dedicated people just praising and having fun...
6. Curling irons, hair spray, etc. & extra people around that like to help me find new looks.*
7. Ross (not always, but I happened to find 2 great shirts last week, just in time).
8. Throat discs. Soothing relief when you push your voice a little too hard, or it's dry outside...or smoky.
9. Bowen therapy, I couldn't have directed that choir with my unique style without hard core prayer and some Bowen therapy to get my shoulder working again!
10. The fact that some of you are now wondering what my unique directing style is.....;)

* For the record, I usually do not spend a whole lot of time using these items. I have fun when it's time to get dressed up for something. Thing is, people go crazy when I make the effort...does that mean I look so horrible the rest of the time? Not sure what to think about that. :)

You are so funny... On the days when I straighten my hair, or even rarer- curl it- I wonder how I ever had the time to do that EVERY DAY and hold down a job...

GREAT list, as always. Though I shouldn't (EVER) sing, I strain my throat when we play rockband. Bad, actually. Like I've bruised vocal chords. Is that even possible?

I can't imagine you could ever look horrible :) Hope the fires are dying down in your area. The big one down here is only 30% contained the last time I checked. I always complain about the heat, but I can't imagine what those poor firefighters are dealing with.

Have a great Labor Day!
