Dancing Fairies

As I sat in a hot auditorium watching a bunch of kids skip around, it occurred to me that ballet recitals are not my idea of fun.

Then my daughter appeared on stage.

I moved forward in my seat.

A smile crossed my face.

The music started, and my breath caught in my throat.

My heart swelled with love.

And I realized that every parent in the room felt exactly the same way about his or her daughter.

You know something? Ballet recitals aren't so bad after all.

Dinner last night: oven-fried parmesan chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, leftover chocolate birthday cake with vanilla ice cream
