Singing, Swinging and Strolling

I love christian music. But I also love country music. And pop. And rock. And, well, I just love music. Especially if it has a good beat!

If you need a good pick-me-up, you need to listen to the new hit by the Black-Eyed Peas called "I Gotta Feeling". That's exactly what I did last night.

Yesterday was just a hard day emotionally. I'm working with some friends on the Atlanta Walk to Remember which is on October 18th. I contacted a t-shirt company about a design and just had Grady on my mind SO much. Just one of those days where I missed him so much my heart hurt.


So, on the way to Jessica's softball game, "I Gotta Feeling" came on the radio. The girls and I turned the radio up, way up, and sang as loud as we could. "I gotta feeling, that tonight's gonna be a good night, that tonight's gonna be a good, good night....."

It lifted my spirits a little and a good night it was!

Jessica had a GREAT game! Her first time up to bat, she made her very first hit! She was so shocked that she just stood there. After everyone was screaming at her to run, she took off and made it safely to first base. She got to second and the inning was over.

Her next time up to bat she made another hit! This time she didn't hesitate at all. She took off as fast as she could to first. She got to third, and the inning was over.

She played second base last night and had two great plays. She tagged a girl out and threw the ball to her back-up for an out.

She had a grin from ear to ear! A friend of mine took some pictures that I will post when I get them.

On the way home last night, I thought it would be cool if "I Gotta Feeling" was on again. I checked that radio station, and guess what? It was! We sang our hearts out and jammed on the way home again. Fun! Fun!

I leave this afternoon for my breast cancer walk. My foot is better, but I have to admit that I'm a bit worried. It is still sore. It hurts when I first get up in the mornings and when I wiggle my toes. I thought the walk was forty miles, but it's only thirty. Twenty miles on Saturday and ten on Sunday. Hopefully I can make it! I'm gonna give it my best shot anyway. And I'm not even sure I'll be walking. I think strolling will be a much better way to describe it! We're not trying to break any records. Just looking forward to the experience and meeting other people.

That's all I have today about singing, swinging and strolling. I hope you all have a great weekend! As always, thanks for stopping by! And a BIG thanks to all of you who let me know you visit my blog! Thank you! Thank you!

"See ya" soon!
