“When you get the chance to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance.” – Mark Sanders & Tia Sellers
Allison gets her work ethic from her dad. She’s seen him leave home before daylight, and come home after sunset all her life. His dad did the same. I admire their “sticktoitiveness”. But there are times when the job is thankless, when no one is applauding. That’s when the Mom in Me pleads with them, in order not to burn out, we have to have a balance. When our world feels more like an endless ride on a roller coaster, after eating a footlong chile dog, we have to stop and get our footing.
Recently, I attended the WOW festival in Cookeville, and enjoyed seeing Allison dance again.
I love my daughter. I’m proud of all she’s accomplished, but I’m happiest for her when she’s happy. I hope she continues to dance, physically and spiritually.
I hope she’ll always take the time to locate her joy. And I hope I can talk her dad into a waltz or two. 😉
Until Next Time,
Know The Hope!
