I got the chance to go to Virginia this weekend to see my mom and my neice, Katie in the Virginia Christmas Spectacular!  It was wonderful, and they did a great job.  Many years ago, as a student at Liberty University, I had wished my mom could be part of such a tremendous music community–she loves to sing and has always loved music.  It was really cool after all these years to see HER singing in the living Christmas tree!  I had a chance to see family, shop and talk with the girls and have lunch with my dad!  So glad I made the choice to go–something I will never forget.
