Bel Canto with Love

First of all, I just want to say how thankful I am to have had the incredible opportunity to be apart of this amazing group of women. Bel Canto has been my rock throughout my four years at college. It has shaped me into the woman I am today and I could not be more grateful for the experience of not only being apart of this choir, but for the blessing of being a leader as well. This little note is in each letter. I am writing all of you a note to tell you how thankful I am. This little note is the only thing that is the same in all of you letters and that's because I wanted to be able to explain why I am sending you each an individual letter and still have room to write a personal note to each of you. Being president for three years has been the greatest gift I had ever received. I made many friends and watched so many incredible women grow and blossom before my eyes. This year, however, has been the best year of them all and probably the hardest. Leaving APU has been one of the hardest adjustments for me because it was my home and my whole life for four years. This choir, however, gave me friendship, love, perservance, and a true appreciation for what being sisters in Christ looks like. I wanted to take the time to thank all of you. You have meant the world so me, I could never fully explain it to you but it's true. Thank you for everything you have given me just by your kind words of friendship and encouragement throughout this past year and in the touching letters you put in my scrapbook. I love all of you and I always will. Thank you for making my last year of college so special and so memorable. I am sorry these letters are so late. It is unlike me, but I have had the materials and addresses all summer. It was too hard, however, and too emotional for me to write them though. I am writing them now before you start your new school year. I will be praying for you all, I do everyday because you are my girls, my friends, and my sisters. Live life to the fullest, praise God with everything you have, and when times are the hardest, remember there is always someone waiting to catch you when you fall. Love never fails. God Bless, Christina Elizabeth Spencer

I sent this one a little sheet of paper in all of the letters I sent out to my girls from Bel Canto 2010-2011. I just wanted somewhere to write it down so I would always remember them and how they have impacted my life.
