Something Sweet

Something sweet happened today; something sweet and life affirming.

Today was a first for me in all of my 18 years of working here in the Music Department. Every week, the students meet for a once-a-week recital hour meeting. On a pre-scheduled date, students perform once per semester before the faculty and the other music students. Today was no different except for one very special thing - there was a proposal.

Cameron S. (percussion) finished his piece. He asked everyone to wait just an extra couple of minutes and then he left the stage. He walked up to her girlfriend of two years, Elicia M. (flute), went down on bended knee and offer up an engagement ring. The recital hall exploded into hoots, whistles, stomping, cheering, and tears. Elicia said YES. There was much happiness all around. I, who did not cry at my own son's wedding, even teared up a little bit. Many blessings, Cameron and Elicia.
