We went to our first school performance as parents' of a performer. There is something magical about watching your child on stage. I was close to tears the entire time. Happy tears, of course. I was just so proud to see him up there, strutting his stuff and singing his heart out. Might I add that my dear boy can carry a tune like no other little five year old boy with blond, spiky hair can ;) And you should have seen his little sister! She was his biggest fan, crying when he left the stage, and then beaming when he returned. So cute.
I was also proud of all the other performers, young and "old" (grades K-12). I couldn't stop myself from smiling and applauding. I just kept thinking of how their parents' must feel, and how our Father in Heaven must feel... These children are such a gift, especially when sharing their talents with others. Such a sweet experience. And I can't wait until the next one! *B
