For once, I got to go to the songwriter group at Tom and Cary’s house. They meet each week, either there or in Oak Cliff at Bruce and Lisa’s house. But I almost *never* get to go. Last Fall, I repeatedly wanted to, but had conflicts almost every Monday…band rehearsal…meetings at church. I was literally only free for two Mondays, and both of them I was exhausted that I just couldn’t get up the energy.
But I had the new song to play, and a free night, so I went. A small group, but mighty nice to be among songwriter friends.
And for this, I am thankful.
(During this year, my goal is to find something new to be thankful for every single day, and to add that thanksgiving as a blog entry, under the title “My Daily Gratitude.” I started this kick back around Thanksgiving, and it’s already resulted in a favorite new song of mine. The goal of this ongoing spiritual exercise is to see if doing such a thing might inspire even more gratitude within me, and to foster general awareness of life on a deeper level.)
