Unexpected Delights

My Daughter, Karen was given two tickets to see Il Divo, in our city. I'd heard of them, but had never seen them or heard their music. She and her sister, Kim, were planning on going. But both were unable unable, because of their babies were still not feeling well, after each had a cold.

 Both of my sisters love Il Divo, so my plan was to give the tickets to them to enjoy. Well one sister, as it turned out was unable to go, so I ended up going with my sister Pat over at Sugar & Spice and all Things ?? Nice

It was an amazing production complete with the beautiful backdrops, lighting, awesome sound system and our great seats, so close to the stage. I never knew how much I was going to like Il Divo  and their complete orchestra until we went to this performance.

Thank you so  much to my daughter Karen for thinking of me when she couldn't use the tickets. 

It just goes to show, we never know from day to day what will come our way, some days, not so good, but this day, it was something...very, very...good.

These are two previously recorded videos, as examples, of the performance they staged for us in Saint John, NB

A Wonderful Surprise

Our daughter lives 'out west' in Alberta, Canada. We only get to see her and our granddaughter living there, on Skype. On a rainy and windy day such as the one we're having today, this was such a lovely surprise to have delivered to my door. 

The card says, "Happy Mother's Day", Love Krista.

How lucky and blessed am I!!
