for Mabel

Mabel played the piano in Sacrament Meeting today (in front of hundreds of people!), with only a few days to learn the music*.  Oh, she did such a good job! She was nervous, but her hands were calm and steady and she played beautifully. I am so proud of her.

I am thankful for this brave, compassionate girl. She is reliable and level headed and very artistic. She has a better sense of self than I ever did at age 11. Being her mother is a complete privilege.

p.s. Mabel will be participating in the East Valley Millennial Choir and Orchestra concert in December. If you are local, I hope you will consider coming. It is a wonderful, powerful way to kick off the Christmas Season. Tickets are on sale now!

*Special thanks to our fantastic piano teacher, Sara. She arranged the music for Mabel to play and I am sure that was key to Mabel's success. We are grateful for her.
