curtain

All good things come to an end… we did it. Little Women was successfully preformed on stage 5 times in 4 days. It was amazing, each time got better and better. It was exhilarating to get up on stage. Each audience was different and gave off a different energy as did we. I can't say enough about the honor it was to play such a dignified, graceful woman. I have learned so much through my role as Marmee. She is just the kind of mother I want to be. She cares deeply for each of her daughters and the others she comes in contact with. She never speaks down to anyone but puts a positive spin on everything. She desires those she loves to be truly happy and to never compromise that happiness for anything.

It was an amazing experience and although it was hard work, I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. I worked alongside of some of the best people, was led by gracious leaders who poured themselves blood, sweat and tears into our every move. I am just so honored to be apart of such a great cast. I have some pictures although not the official professional ones which will come in January... I hope all of you who came enjoyed it.

I have also been held up by an incredible support team. I could not have done any of it without that. Dave and the boys have had the most to loose and they blew me away with their constant encouragement and the grace they had for me. My friends.. my family. I am never complete without any of you and you all never cease to amaze me with your graciousness.
That is enough for now. I will try to put up pictures this weekend...

You did amazing and I was brought to tears by the end of the evening. What a blessing that story is. In the midst of adversity this family showed a togetherness that is so rare in our modern world. You're right. I learned from Marmee too. Thanks Heather. :)
