Final Sunday

Yesterday was my last Sunday in my Provo ward.  I kept saying that throughout the day, to myself and to other people, but I don't think it's really sunk in yet.  Otherwise I would have cried more than the one time I did cry.  :)  But maybe it's a good thing I didn't completely go to pieces yesterday.  :)

But it was a wonderful last Sunday!  Because Easter Sunday was also our Fast Sunday, we decided to have our Easter program yesterday instead.  It was a beautiful program!  The choir performed two numbers, and we had two wonderful speakers and four other musical numbers--a flute, a pianist, a vocalist, and a harp.  All of them were fantastic!  My favorite (without any bias, I can assure you...) was the final choir number.  We sang "Consider the Lilies," which we had been working on for months.  And it really turned out so well!  I love how in choirs and orchestras alike, even when things are still a little shaky in the final rehearsal, they almost always seem to just...come together for the performance.  It was a wonderful final day as ward choir director!

It was also wonderful throughout the day to see the friends I've made in the ward.  Many of them (including the bishopric) told me that things just won't be the same without me there.  While I know life will certainly go on without me there, it is nice to know I've had an influence on some people's lives.  I hope it was a good one.  :)  I am grateful for all the fond memories I've made here in this ward, and I will miss all of my friends a great deal. Love you all!
