I haven’t seen a good friend of mine in a while. It seems like time has gotten away from us. We haven’t written, called, or gotten together. Well, the latter is excusable since we live thousands of miles apart, but there really is no excuse for not writing or calling, no matter how busy life can be. So today as part of my quest to give 29 gifts in 29 days, inspired by the book, 29 Gifts, I decided to buy her the latest CD from her favorite band since she was in town visiting me.
Actually, they’re my favorite (or should I say “favourite” in Canadian-style?) band too: The Canadian Tenors. If you’re not familiar with this incredible band that appeared on Oprah with Celine Dion, Dr. Phil, and, of course, the 2010 Olympic games hosted by Vancouver, Canada, these gifted vocalists and fellow proud Canadians, you can hear/view their breathtaking rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” here:
She loved the gift! And just seeing her happy put a big smile on my face too. Plus, we listened to the CD later and it was a gift to me just to listen to such beautiful and uplifting music. I think I’ll have to get a copy of my own as a gift to me.
To continue the spirit of giving, make sure you add your comments to my blog over the next four weeks because, with the help of the kind people at Care2.com, I’ll giving away free copies of my books! Winners will be selected from the comments!
