Tommy in the Ward Choir - AGAIN

Okay, so the ward choir sang on Sunday, and I thought, although I am extremely biased being the director, that the choir sounded REALLY great. My soloist was amazing (thanks Cleave!) and the 5 men who sing in the choir somehow balanced well against the 10 women! Right before the choir was to sing, Eddie decided he was hungry, so Danny was feeding him. Well, Tommy wanted to come up with me to sing, and Danny couldn't stop him or else Eddie would start wailing. What was I going to do? There was Tommy, on the stand, running around like the crazy kid he is, so I grabbed him, and looked frantically around for someone, ANYONE to take him! A member of the Bishopric came and saved me! I can't remember his name, but I am SO grateful! He took Tommy out to the hall and stayed with him until the choir was finished, even though he was supposed to be conducting! I will be forever in his debt! I didn't get many comments about the performance, but I usually don't. It's hard to gage how well we did if no one tells me how we sounded and Danny's usually too busy with the kids to really give me a good critique! I don't want to sound needy, but it's nice to know if the people in the congregation liked the choir! So, I wasn't having a good day on Wednesday until I got this note in the mail. It said:

I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for the job you do with our ward choir. I realize it is not always easy but every time the choir sings I am impressed. I just wanted you to know that I am grateful for what you do. May God bless you for your faithful service. Bishop Rogers

That's so cool! I hate it when people to compliment the choir, and it happens all the time, even if it was an awesome performance. I guess people don't realize that directors need feedback!
