Pre-Recital Jitters

This morning at 8:45:

*phone ringing*

"Hello, this is Sarah."


"Hi! Who is this?"


"Hey Johnny, how're you doing?"

"Good....I have a couple questions about the recital."

"Ok, what's up?"

"Do I have to play my arpeggios for the recital?"

"No, you are just playing 'God is so Good'."

"Good, so I don't have to play my scales or anything?"

"Nope, just the one song."

*gasp of relief* "Good - goodbye!!"

"Bye. See you this evening!"

So cute! I remember asking those types of questions... :)

That sounds exciting :) I will be praying for you...Hope it goes well.

Cute! I definitely remember my pre-recital jitters! I hardly recall being so nervous about anything else (public speaking, interviews, flying, rafting, etc.). Hope all goes well, Sarah!

How adorable! The kids always look so terrified when they walk in the door and smile at me with a queasy sort of expression. Poor things...I'm always so proud of how they do, though.

And Johnny might be onto something. Scales and arpeggios for recital fare...good idea!

Lynnae, thanks for the prayers! I really appreciate them...and it went off smashingly! :)
Ruthie, thanks for your well-wishes. Recitals really are the most nerve-racking things!
Mika, aren't they cute? He called me again later to be sure he didn't have to play something else he was practicing...I knew exactly how he felt!
Kaytch! I meant the kids had the pre-recital jitters! Not me! Don't you know the teacher is never nervous?? (Ok, so I was sick to my stomach with nerves. And so? :)
