Oh there is so much I want to write about. How is it possible that Christmas was only a few days ago??
But since I am wrapped up with my family for a few more days, and so grateful for this time I get with them, for now here’s a post I wrote before Christmas and never had the chance to post.
Here we go:
The first few days of December revolved around Lucy and her SIX concerts for MCO.
That is a LOT of concerts I have to say!
On the first day I picked her up early from school and stayed there all day long since I was a parent volunteer and I always like to volunteer at the beginning because get nervous about her finding her way with all the stage/location changes since there are 1,200 singers performing.
Nope, I didn’t type that wrong, there are SO MANY KIDS!! Which makes for an amazing performance, but I always get so worried about Lucy. She can’t recognize faces to get around and she really doesn’t know anyone.
But you know what? As I watched her (and tried to stay out of her business…fierce independence as you know), I was so overcome with gratitude and peace about how she handles things. She really is such a strong advocate for herself. She figures things out. She asks for help when she needs it and she is OK.
And I said many silent prayers of gratitude for her. All of her. She glows from the inside out.
Here’s the view from the back of the stage during the run-through:
Also, so very grateful for MCO. For that music that seems to vibrate through her, she simply has to dance along with the words, she FEELS it. And I can’t think of anything better for her, so I thank my lucky stars for this organization to make her feel more whole.
This is the only picture I got at the concert…with this darling girl we carpool with.
Here’s Lucy making a “six” after she finished her SIXTH concert:
So proud of her.
Love her forever.
