WOW WOW WOW

Okay so last night we went out for a FABULOUS evening.  It started at Gordon Biersch for dinner which was yummy.  James and I shared the pecan crusted chicken- delish!  Then the four of us (my mom, my sister Lisa, James and I) shared their banana split for dessert.  It was really good.  After wards we took the short walk over to the Sprint Center for the concert.  It was probably the most unique audience experience.  I don’t know anywhere else that the audience would go over and chat with each other during intermission and other free times.  It was fun to see all these people we know and many of which I haven’t seen in a while.  I even got to catch up a bit with a friend from college. 

Then the performance…. oh where to I begin!!  It was so incredible.  They just sounded completely perfect.  I just sat there in awe most of the concert.  Every song was amazing.  Afterwards, I wasn’t even sure what my favorite was because they were all so good.  Then this morning I found this quote in a book of mine:

 

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. ~Mark Twain

 

This is reminded me of the concert.  These people are the really great.  They are so talented and they volunteer unpaid to do this.  They definitely inspired me.  The concert and the words spoken made me know that each individual can be great.  We can all do great things.
