Christmas Program

Let's rewind a bit, shall we?

Due to my untimely illness (that I'm apparently going to use as an excuse for everything) I failed to post about my daughter's theatrical debut. I know, I know, it's almost unforgivable but - again - the FEVER was in CHARGE!

Anyway, she played the part of Nurse Philpot in our church musical and, honestly, I had absolutely no idea what to expect because apparently a 'tween doesn't need or want her mother's interference when preparing for such an event. At least mine didn't.

So, I was a wee bit nervous BUT was absolutely amazed with the performance, y'all. She began with a snarky attitude (it was scripted, not just the 'tween thang) and for a minute we thought she had been purely type cast. :-)

But, in the end, she and her character came around to celebrating the real meaning of Christmas and it was - from start to finish - delightful.

She was so excited to have her very own headset, y'all. She sang and remembered her lines and I was one proud mama. All of the kids did an incredible job and I was again so thankful for our church.  

There was also a cameo by the Pink Ladies and, friends, I promise it was one of the most entertaining scenes of myself. They were hysterical and truly brought the house down.

At the end of the day (or life), it's really all about living for Him and it is our opinion that Taylor will be much better equipped for navigating the treacherous paths of junior high and high school (not to mention college because I'm just NOT ready to go there) if she's surrounded by friends who hold the same beliefs and value with a safe place to learn more about Jesus each week. Brazos Meadows is that and we could not be more thrilled that she wants to be there every single time the doors are open.

I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.
Philippians 4:13 (NIV)
