The Three D's

Since I don't know how to decorate my actual blog for Christmas (or anything else for that matter), I thought I would just begin my posts in December with little pictures from around the house. My Mom made both of these more years ago than I can remember. Every Year their sweet presence is part of our Christmas.

I have just come home from my piano recital, and I am Discouraged, Downhearted and Disappointed. Why is it that the songs I have practiced until my sweet husband must want to go running out the back door (although he says it doesn't bother him a bit), songs I know I can play well, sound as though I had never even seen the music before when I try to play them in front of others?

Honestly - there are only four of us - my piano teacher and the other two ladies who take lessons from her who are a bit older than me. No pressure right? Try telling that to my trembling hands and wobbly knees. I so desperately want to be able to play well. After five years you would think I would be well on my way.

So....I'm just having a little pity party at present. I'll be back when I get my attitude in shape.

I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your recital! Nerves can really mess things up! Don't quit!

I am not a betting woman, but I bet after you played a couple of notes, your music sounded great.

I remember recitals all too well!

I'm also thinking that you played better than you think you did or are giving yourself credit for!

I too know the wobbly knee and trembling hands when it comes to being in front of people. I used to sing in church and it never seemed to get any easier for me!

Cute snowman and tree... I love handmade memories.

I agree with the others. You are more than likely being too hard on yourself.

The sweet snowman and Christmas tree are so pretty. I love them. I bet they are so dear to your heart. Those are the very best decorations.
