A Dance Recital's Beautiful Moment...(and it's not about "the" dance.)

   * My Journal * This past weekend was spent tending to Amy as she performed in three dance recitals over the course of two days.  I definitely had a most precious "feel good" moment... a moment, I will indeed cherish forever.   What captured my heart?  No…it was not about a breath taking lyrical dance, or an inspirational ballet with exquisite precision.   It also wasn't about watching the priceless "little ones" performing in their very first recital...(although I must say nothing gets cuter). It wasn't even about the joy of witnessing Amy and her peers flow across the stage with maturity and grace.
    What I am talking about is simply and perfectly captured in this snapshot.  A slice of life beyond precious. It's true.  A picture really is worth a thousand words.  To see the "older" girls taking time, connecting, and sharing with the "little" girls.  Does it get any better than this?  I don't think it does.  (If only the "rest of the world" could "have" what this picture reveals.)  I believe this to be a most endearing moment....to treasure....always and forever.  And that is truly a good thing.
