Happiness All Around

I was involved in a dance show this past Friday and Saturday. Now, I'm 5 hours from everyone else in my family so I wasn't expecting anyone to show up but I was totally okay with that. I understand our home situation and the distance. To my surprise, my parents made the drive and surprised me on Friday! I cried because I was so happy! I also used to dance with a girl named Anmarie and I call her my Mia Michaels she's THAT special. She texted me and said she wouldn't be able to make the Friday show but she hoped to get there Saturday. Another surprise for me, she was there Friday night! I couldn't believe any of it. I'm glad she and her little one loved it! The baby was kicking her belly when she/he heard the drums from the African dances! Earlier that day on Friday we put on a performance for the staff and students at school. All of my babies and coworkers were allon the balcony waving at me. Then on Saturday I had a whole posse of friends (and my boss) come watch. It was beyond amazing. I realized how blessed I was. Seriously.

In addition...I wanted to post these song lyrics to one of my favorites.

Imagine there'sno Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm adreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as

Ohhh if everyone could think and act like this song. When I hear this song, I think of hope. I see the beauty of children working together despite their differences every single day. If only we all could have faith like a child.

Do something nice for someone today.
