Hello!

I'm having a busy week but had to share a picture of my first water lily of the season. We've been getting lots of rain but as soon as the sun came out for a few minutes this morning, the flower opened up!



I have a piano recital this coming Saturday and if you are famililar with anxiety/nervousness issues that you'll know that I'm not a happy camper right now! If I'm not at the piano practicing, I'm starring off into space wondering how many mistakes I'll make. ;0)

I hope your week is going well and I'll be back soon. Hopefully with something more exciting to share!

You'll do fine at the recital, don't worry! At least not until Friday anyhow ;)
The pond is so pretty. Have you ever considered turtles?

What a nice picture of your first lilly... thanks for sharing!! I get nervous when I'm in an "up front" position too... so I understand and I'm sending up a prayer for peace. Blessings, Diane

Oh, I'm sure you'll do wonderfully at your recital, but I know about the anxiety, I do the same thing, in fact, I backed out of one of my recitals because I was so nervous, lol, I was only 10 though. Beautiful water lilly, spring has sprung:)

Kelli, Thanks for coming by and commenting on the chicken......
I'm sure you'll do wonderful at the recital. One of the sweetest recitals Iever attended a grandmother and her grandchildren had taken lessons together and played in the recital together........

Trella said...

I am sure you will do fine.

I love the lilly, so beautiful!

Blessings,

Your water lily is lovely. Another treasure from your garden.

Very pretty water lilly, and your fish look so happy and healthy too! I played the piano as a young girl and would nearly be sick with anxiety before a performance or recital...lol. So in answer to your question, yes I know how it feels, but it always turns out fine. You'll do great!

Pam said...

I'll be praying for you and your recital! You will do greatwith all that practicing!

This post was exciting! Watching God's handiwork could never be boring now could it?

Love your blog!

PEA said...

How I'd love to have a little pond in my backyard...maybe that will be next year's wishful project! lol Your water lily is just gorgeous:-) Good luck at the piano recital...yup, I know all about anxiety problems! Ugh! xox

Jenn4Him said...

But this is exciting! The water lily is awesome and I love those koi too. Are they hard to take care of?

Gena said...

Your lily and your pond are just beautiful!

You will do beautifully at your recital. Just take deep breaths and try to stay calm. I will keep you in my prayers.

Also, thank you for telling me about the yo-yos. I think we will be trying some of the yo-yo projects this summer.

Kelli, the water lily is so pretty! I'm sure you will do good at the recital. You seem to be good at everything you do!

Heather said...

Dear Kelli! Isn't your wonderful first lily a special reminder of God's love and care for you? He so wants to relieve your fears and replace it with His wonderful love! From the standpoint of a non-musical person, most of the time I attend rehersals I am so in awe of those who have shared their talent, I don't even hear the mistakes! I just sit there wishing I had stuck to those lessons so many years ago ....

Mrs. U said...

How fun! A recital!! I wish we were close enough to come here you play!!! I'm sure you'll do wonderfully well!!!!

I LOVE your pond!! I tell Mr. U all the time that I can't wait until the day that we can have a pond like that!! It's soo pretty!!

His,
Mrs. U

Kitty said...

Just chiming in to tell you that I know you'll do great,too!! Oh, but I know that nervous feeling, I still remember how I felt before my violin perfomances, and the last one was years ago!! But you are well prepared, and your performance will be lovely!! :-)

Amber said...

Your water lily is beautiful!

Good luck with the recital. I am sure you will do great!

Just Mom said...

You could always think about that lovely water lily as you're playing your music Saturday. That might take your mind off your nervousness. Wishing you all the best on your recital.

Marci said...

I have done my share of recitals. I have survived them all, although I was not sure I would. Relax and just enjoy it.

Terri said...

I love you little pond! I want one, but first I need a house of my own! LOL

P.S. Good luck with your recital
