From Ballet Shoe to Soft Shoe

Rehearsals started last week for Alice in Wonderland, the Spring ballet performance the girls were going to perform.

But a funny thing happened on the way... well, just on the way inside the house from the garage.

Brigitta tripped on a boot and broke her toe.

We just got home from the clinic and called the studio. They haven't decided if it's an automatic "out" for Brigitta or if she'll come to rehearsals and mentally memorize her parts and practice like all get out as soon as she has the green light from her doctor.

I must say I am so very proud of her. She understands that she might not perform and even though it's disappointing she understands that some times these things just happen.

When she climbed into the van she told me she didn't need to cry any more and asked me how the song, "Create in me a clean heart" went.

I sang it to her and then sang it with her for the ride home. It was very sweet and gave both of us the peace we need to make it through the rest of this very strange day.

"Create in me a clean heart, oh God.
And renew a right spirit within me.
Create in me a clean heart, oh God.
And renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from Your presence oh Lord.
Take not Thy holy spirit from me.
Restore unto me, the joy of Thy salvation
And renew a right spirit within me."

sure hope she can still her part in the play :O)

I really enjoyed your post about David, and what a powerful analogy between the steering wheel and the spare tire!

Have a great day.
