Bell Choir and such at St. Timothy’s with Verbal Nancys

While out “blog surfing” the other day, I came across a blog by Martha. Her “header” stated that she makes “altar hangings and clerical vestments, and smaller more light-hearted pieces for secular spaces.” How could I NOT stop for a visit?

As I read and scrolled I came to her June 14 post, “Polka Dots”, where she had several pictures of a old dresser that had been beautifully painted by her sister Nancy. Near the end of the post she wrote:

“Now you can see why my friends all say that “Nancy” is a verb!”

Ha! “Nancy” is most DEFINITELY a verb!

My mother is a Nancy. She is in charge of the Altar Guild, is on Vestry, sings in the choir, rings bells, and she volunteers for the County Sheriff as well as a host of other organizations.

There is another Nancy. She is President, Chairman, Director or a Member of nearly everything else in our church and, I suspect, the county (perhaps country, too).

And there is yet another Nancy! Wife of Father T. and Director of the Voice Choir, the Bell Choir and of all Music contained within the walls and halls of St. Timothy’s, Director of the Cascade Community Chorus, Champion Cardsmith and Master of Giggles.

Whew! I’m SO glad I’m not a Nancy. It must be exhausting.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain, American writer
