I am on a plane ride home from Seattle early this morning. I wasn’t on the west coast quite long enough to adjust to the time change, but I am sure to discover once I return home that it was long enough to really mess me up!
The sun is alive and well outside my window. Didn’t see it much in Washington, but a
little rain is always good for a songwriter, and good for reflection. And I’m sure I will reflect on this
tour for quite some time. It’s
kind of hard to process the whole thing right now. The concept of a tour is quite strange when I think about
it. A group of people ride on a
bus across the country for two months.
So bizarre, and so amazing.
First off, I couldn’t have had a better crew with me on the
road this fall. Each person in
each position was absolutely amazing!
I am so thankful for a gifted band and hard working crew. I stepped on stage every night,
confident that the show was going to go well because everyone was so great at
what they do.
When I think about the fact that we just completed a 27 city
tour across a country that is experiencing some of the most difficult and
uncertain economic times, I am even more amazed that it all happened. God was so faithful day in and day
I owe thanks to all the people in every city who put down their hard earned money for a ticket to my show, and I hope you all felt it was worth it! Some nights, we wondered what was going to happen, but you came to the shows, and I am grateful for so many supporters, and the greatest fans ever!
Thanks to my booking agency and management for all of the
hard work setting this tour up, and allowing me the opportunity to do what I
Finally, I am thankful for my family, who has probably had it the hardest this fall. This tour has taken me far from home for far too long. Even as I write this, I’ve got that sinking feeling in my stomach as I think of how many days I have missed waking up and seeing my little girl’s smile. But I will see that smile tonight…
So, I guess this blog turned into a “thank you” note. So be it. I suppose every day of my life should be a “thank you”
note. Thank you, God for loving
me, and for guiding my life. You
truly are my faithful friend, the one who will not let me go.
