Another Moment That Snuck Up On Me


This year, my daughter decided to participate in the orchestra pit for her school’s production of Pippin. I caught tonight’s performance and it was simply amazing! I could gush on and on…and I was…clapping myself silly…standing ovation…whole house cheering.

Then the pit floor started to rise (did I mention my daughter is in the pit?).  Seriously, the moment snuck up on me…it took my breath away. There she was. My girl. Just seeing her there…I don’t know how to describe it…I can’t find the right words. Beaming with pride – sure, those are words…but there have to be better ones. I just don’t know what they are. But man oh man was it a moment…and I’ll have it forever.
