Hi! It’s me! Lily!
So this morning I went to church. You know, like usual. This time, they talked about fallen soldiers and stuff.
I’ll be honest, I don’t get it.
I mean… Jesus didn’t seem like much of a fighter, did he?
Oh well. I guess death stinks no matter who dies.
But there were a few veterans in the audience, and the pastor thanked them, and talked about sacrifice and stuff. I don’t really understand that topic, but… I guess it’s good that they did what they believe in?
It seems to be important to Dave, too. He’s never really told me why.
And I know my “benefactor” is pretty high up in the military too…
So after church I came home and went right to practicing again, and Jack came over with some chocolate! Bless him! And I don’t mean that in the sarcastic southern way! I munched on some chocolate and then he listened to me practice.
He said I’m really good… he doesn’t know how to play anything like that.
I blushed a little.
He said it was hot.
I blushed a lot more.
He said he’s glad my fingers are strong.
I think I was radiating heat.
He seemed enraptured though, that was really sweet of him. I’m sure I’ll feel the same once he figures out what he wants to do.
In fact, he even pointed out a couple of places where he thought something would sound better… and he was right! Maybe he’s got an ear for it.
We’re also still preparing for the big picnic tomorrow. It’s going to be lots of fun!!! I may even not practice! Oh who am I kidding, I’m gonna practice.
