I was able to go see Jersey Boys last night thanks to Shannon for volunteering to play mom for me and run my son around while I was gone. There was some needless crude language in it - but I loved the older songs. I just love to sit and listen to the music that is enveloped in a story.

I had never been to a musical before I was engaged to my husband. He took me to my first the week before we got married. We went and saw Phantom of the Opera. That was the beginning. He loved musicals, and the songs from them and helped me to grow a greater appreciation for the various styles of music.

As I look towards my future there is and has been over the past five years a lot of discovering who I am and who I want to be. This I will take with me. I used to go to them or watch them to support my husband... but this one I found myself craving.

I just wanted to be there and to soak it all in.

So, one of the perks of widowhood was deciding it was a great Mother's day gift for me.... and buying it. Now I am downloading the album and will listen to it over and over again...


  1. That is frightening, "Phantom of the Oprah", I'm sure you meant Opera. ;~) Very glad that you got to go to the concert!

  2. Oh yes... Phantom of the Oprah would be frightening! :) For fear that others will have to have THAT vision in their head I am going to make that corrections~! Thanks!
