Kerri, with a K

trying to be me


D is for… Day by Day

I was a junior in high school when my high school finally found a music director that wanted to do a musical.  We did Godspell.  I remember those days fondly because I honestly had a lot of fun working on it, despite my constant drama-queen-like attitude, and need to quite the production every single day because I was a drama queen.  Or so I’m told.  Ok.  FINE.  I was a little dramatic, but full on drama queen is a bit much.

ANYway.  There were maybe 10 roles and only so many songs, but I got a solo for one song.  And I hated it.  And I complained about it every day.  And tried to get rid of it because I wanted to sing a different song.  And what happened?  I kept that song AND got another one I hated singing.  Of course.  The song I had to sing?  Day by Day.

Day by Day, Day by day

Oh dear Lord, three things I pray

To see thee more clearly,

To love thee more dearly,

To follow thee more nearly

Day by day.

And it went on and on and on.  And I hated it.  And it’s funny that to this day I STILL remember the words and how it goes.  And I still have those fond memories.
