Sp here we are at the end of the year 2020. Most of us would say that this was the year of hell and good riddance.
As a formerly in-demand entertainer, before my symptoms became too uncomfortable to elegantly schmooze clients at a ritzy private event, I miss the excitement of meeting new people. I gig was not just a gig for me. My choice of songs was very precise and deliberate. I chose classics by many of the female greats, songs that would leave a poignant memory and evoke emotions. I poured out my soul on inspirational songs like Celine Dion's, Because You Loved Me, The Rose by Bette Midler and True Colours by Cyndi Lauper. I loved to share the passion of divine and unconditional love, always directing them to my heavenly Father.
It's been quite few years since I've enjoyed hearing many messages on my machine asking me if could do a private anniversary, birthday or first Holy communion party. Early this year, I had a few events which were booked last year at churches, but when the Covid hit, my gigs were all cancelled.
I've never been one to allow sudden crisis circumstances to impede my ability to bring light to a dark season. I continued my medical researching for my peers on the Dystonia, Lyme, Mold illness and Mercury Detox Facebook groups. Though it wasn't the same as getting gussied-up and gong out for a night's gig, it was rewarding to give some of the severely depressed folks some hope. We lost a very special gal to Lyme Disease. Many in these groups are housebound because of debilitation or being bedridden and the Facebook groups are the only place for connection and support.
I won't make this a long post, but I need to make sure that you all keep the faith and make a resolution that this coming year, you'll make a habit to do random acts of kindness. Smiles always invite hope. This mask thing, though, may make it a bit harder to shine your light, but with God all things re possible! Pass It Forward movie was a great inspiration for me and I recommend everyone to experience it.
As I anticipate and plan for 2021, I plan for it to be my best year for giving and inspiring. As many of you are probably shopping for those special people and you're waiting in line to pay for your merchandise, look around and see if there is someone you can bless. Perhaps an elderly person or weary, disheveled single mom is wrangling with her rambunctious kids. Surprise them with a $20 bill and God bless you and Merry Christmas!, Happy Holidays and JOYOUS, prosperous New Year 2012!!
