thalia jane, dance recital night. there are no words.
last friday night, javin & thalia had their long-awaited dance recital. & was the evening ever all-that-&-a-bag-of-chips. seeing my kids up on that grand stage is perhaps one of the most clouds-bursting-into-sunshine moments i’ve experienced as a mama. my heart was JUST.SO.FULL.
javin told us he only wanted to dance if he got to perform. that genetic code skipped a generation, i tell ya. he’s a blessed kiddo to have it embed in him.
all those cute little girls were peanut & popcorn vendors at the circus. talk about sugary.
javin, front & center, amongst the girls & loving ever gosh-darn minute. he even had a bit solo & got APPLAUDED. he’s found a piece of his puzzle, that’s for sure.
all i have left in me is this: I LOVE THIS. this mama-gig. not all the time, & certainly not all parts (why is it someone has to go to the bathroom every time we sit down for dinner?), but as a whole & as a calling, thank You for giving me this job in the front row.
i wouldn’t trade my seat for anything in the entire world.
