So, I was just rummaging through the internet earlier today, and I stumbled upon an advert for a Michael W. Smith concert taking place tomorrow at The Arena at TD Place in Ottawa tomorrow, October 5, 2017. Unfortunately, I cannot attend it because I am home alone with my little munchkin (can I still call him that?), while Mr. O is back in Lagos.
Seeing this advert made me so sad. I couldn’t believe I was this close to Michael W. Smith and I couldn’t go watch him perform. I was introduced to him by a classmate in university several years ago and his songs changed my life, literally. I remember listening to songs such as Ancient Words, I Give You My Heart, There Is None Like You, Here I am to Worship, Healing Rain, Agnus Dei and Above All at different points in my life.
His songs have uplifted, reassured, inspired, encouraged, motivated and comforted me all through my adult life. I always have at least 5 of his songs on my playlist on my phone.
Anyway, I saw this advert too late. But honestly, the only way I would ever have been able to attend the concert is if Mr. O was in town. It starts at 6.45pm! After researching further, I saw a few other events taking place in Ottawa. I have had my head buried in the sand for the last month that I wasn’t aware of anything else happening outside our house.
So, my ‘brokenheartedness’ has led me to a new project – at the start of every month, I will create a list of all the interesting events taking place in Ottawa. Of course, I will try to attend some of them. This will be my Newcomer’s (or JJC – Johnny Just Come) Guide to Ottawa.
In between making the home, blogging, running our small business and home schooling, I will try to make some time to see the city, with little Mr. O jr in tow of course! Lol! We knew we needed to incorporate some external fun and educational activities into his schedule anyway. And oh, I intend to take my camera along. I am quite useless at photography so that should be fun…..or not 🙂
Stay tuned guys for updates on my Ottawa Living Tour (I need to find a catchy name for it, lmao). You are all invited to join me on this journey as I explore Ottawa and all its beauty and diversity!
Good night from Ottawa,
