My kids

Yeah, yeah, I know the comments aren't working. Sorry about that. I guess it is what I get for trying to modify a blogger template. I'll get them working again soon.

I thank all of you for your words of encouragement. I needed that.

You would be surprised at what actually lifted my mood. My kids. No, I don't have kids of my own. D and I volunteer with our JR and SR high youth at church. And of course you have heard me ramble on about this production of Godspell they are doing. Well the show opened last night. Of course we had to be there for opening night. I saw the show Tuesday at the dress rehearsal, but I wasn't really paying attention.

Let me just say that these kids are AMAZING!!! They range from 6th to 12th grade. They put on a full production of Godspell. Of course Godspell isn't my most favorite musical, but this production was outstanding.

By the end of the show I walked out with a huge smile on my face. This was a huge about face from the Elle that snapped at one of the kids for complaining to me about his bio in the program. Hey man, logical consequences for not turning in your bio sheet on time.

It truly is astounding what young people can do. Thanks kids. I needed the boost.

Good! I am glad you had fun. Had the ability to get lost in something and had a distraction for a bit.
You will be a wonderful parent. I can't wait for us to get our kids!

I'm glad. Godspell isn't one of my all-time favorites either, but the "Day by Day" is undeniably beautiful. And it's appropos for all of us right now, isn't it?

(btw - I was kind of sad to see this blog template go. It's one of my favorites of yours.)

There is nothing like a good musical to lift spirits. I loved performing in those type of productions in my youth. They are SO fun. I love living close to New York so we can see the Broadway musicals there. They are so amazing and transport you to another world. However, they can't replace that good small town feel of community or church theater. I am so glad to hear that they cheered you up!

yeah, your last template ate one of my comments. it was actually a pretty good comment (for a change), so i didn't even attempt to recreate it! :)
