After Sunday Mass yesterday, our parish priest comes up to me and thanks me for the great music on Christmas eve. I thanked him and asked him "The trumpet wasn't too loud, was it?" He says, "No, it wasn't loud enough! He must have seen my eyes widen, he adds, "Maybe I shouldn't have said that!" with a grin. You know, its amazing, one heartfelt thank you can make up for so many unwanted criticisms and renew our love of performing.
