Back from the Cruise!

February 28, 2010

Hello Friends!

Things have sure been interesting for us lately.  The guys have been busy on the road with a pretty hectic schedule and, in addition, have been in the studio putting the finishing touches on what just may be the best Booth Brothers project to date.

There was an unexpected free weekend when we were snowed in, yes, SNOWED IN! The guys had to cancel a whole weekend due to the extreme weather and, I admit, we took advantage of it, hibernating until the worst was over. We enjoyed lots of coffee, tea and hot chocolate, with some games and movies thrown in the mix.  It was a small blessing in the midst of the chaotic weather!

For those of you who suffered the consequences of the snow, rest assured, all of the concerts have been rescheduled and some have already been fulfilled.  That’s our guys, faithfully trudging on.

Last week was filled with sunny days on the Singing At Sea Cruise and boy, did we have a great time! As we pulled into the port, Austin, with nose to the window, kept repeating “Thehh’s my cwuise!”

Jonathan enjoyed some time at Camp Carnival and introduced himself to another boy there by saying “I’m a Booth Brother.” When, at first, the boy didn’t believe him, and said to Jonathan “Prove it!” Jonathan quickly showed his room key (that had his name on it) and proudly declared “See, I AM a Booth Brother!”

As for us girls, we relaxed as often as we could, attended a few concerts and shopped at every opportunity. (Yes, what the guys say about us at the concerts is true, we are very talented shoppers.)  In addition, I made sure to enjoy the molten lava cake as much as possible!

When we reached Nassau, we made sure to visit the local Starbucks.  Jim actually went THREE times! I have to tell you, when I introduced him to coffee, I had no idea he would like it so much! At the first of the year, I suggested that we have some sort of “Starbucks budget.”  Only time will tell if this idea is going work.  So far, not so good!

I experienced a sweet moment when a lady came to me to thank me for sharing Jim.  She reminded me that what we give to God here on earth will be given as crowns to us in heaven which we will then lay at our Savior’s feet.  I was blessed to the point of tears to be reminded that the days I’m without Jim are part of my service to the Lord!  Although circumstances don’t allow us to be at every concert, us wives are there in spirit, cheering and praising with our beloved Booth Brothers!

We Love You All!

NQC Highlight from Vicki

October 3, 2009

You would think the highlight of my week would be having my husband and his group win several awards (and that was very nice) but it was not. The highlight of my week was getting to meet a little 5 month old baby. His name was Andrew, if I remember correctly. Michael called me over and said, “I want you to see this baby.” So over I went, and there was this little guy in a stroller with tubes coming out of his nose. His head was very large, and I learned that he has hydrocephalus, commonly referred to as water on the brain. He has 10% of his brain functioning. Because of his condition, he is expected to die before this Christmas. Now that in itself was not what was so exceptional about this child. What was so amazing was that his parents had adopted him. His mother told me they had traveled all the way to Texas to get him. Nobody else wanted him, and in her words, “Everybody needs a mama.” 

I asked her if I could touch him, and she said yes, that I could touch his hands and arms. So I began rubbing them very lightly. As I looked at this child I saw that he reacted to touch — his eyes would open a bit wider and move around. I asked her questions about him like could he hear, etc. I couldn’t help thinking about how thankful to God I am for the great health of my own children and I couldn’t prevent the tears from coming. And I couldn’t help but be awed that his parents took on such a challenge. To adopt a child they know they will be saying goodbye to very soon.

Later on his mom came back to our booth and asked if I would like to hold him, saying that he was doing well. So I immediately followed her and she also asked Melissa Brady, Jim’s wife to come. It was at this time that I realized that the parents were also singers with a booth at the convention. We were headed to their booth. And more amazing things were there. There was a little black girl in a wheelchair. I think her name was Emily — I’m so bad with names. She was so cute, and she would smile when anyone would talk to her. Over in a chair there was another little sleeping girl that the mother said was autistic. They had adopted these three special needs children because their biological mothers for whatever reason felt they couldn’t care for them.

Melissa got sidetracked on the way (you have to understand that singers often can’t get 3 feet at Convention without being stopped to talk to someone) so I got to hold Andrew first. When his mom handed him off he started to fuss a bit. We finally got settled on a couch and I got to hold him for quite a while. I think about the Dr. Seuss book, Horton Hears A Who and the part where all the Whos have to yell, “We’re here, We’re here, WE’RE HERE!” to try to save themselves. And watching that child, I think he was saying, “I’m here, I’m here, I’M HERE!” He fussed when he was not comfortable. He moved his eyes in reaction to touch. And when Melissa held him, he looked like a body builder flexing the muscles in his arms, which his mom explained was his way of showing excitement. I suggested to Melissa that she sing to him, which she did. And he flexed his arms in response. I think that no matter what the condition of that little boy’s brain, there is a spirit inside there saying, “I’m here! I’m human! I’m made in the image of God!” 

Thank God that his mother didn’t abort him. I got to see the dignity and sanctity of human life up close and personal. It was displayed in that little baby, his siblings and his parents. And that was the highlight of my time at NQC.

NQC Kick Off!

September 15, 2009

Well…we’ve arrived in Louisville and we’re preparing for a GREAT week!! So many of you have said that you will be attending this year and we’re looking forward to seeing you at booth #501.  If you’ve never attended the National Quartet Convention you need to be sure to make plans to attend this annual event. The week gets kicked off with the doors opening on Monday afternoon and the excitement only builds from that moment. By the end of the week the electricity is palpable.  If you aren’t attending this year make sure you attend next year – you will NOT be disappointed!!!

Please keep us in your prayers this week. NQC week is a fun week but it’s also very busy and the schedule can be demanding. Some of us have been a little under the weather and battling bronchitis and hoarseness. Pray that the Lord will give good rest to all of us as well as the staff who will be working the booth. We love you all and wish that everyone could be with us this week!!!
