God has given me many gifts and blessings. This week I am trying to really remember that everything I am doing is a gift. Saturday N auditioned for Mulan. He got a great part. He is the Emperor. He’s excited, because it is the first time he has had a lot of lines and a solo with this director.
I am producing the show. This means that I have spent every evening at the theatre doing major amounts of paperwork. Tonight I finally caught up. I’m still at the theatre, but at least I can post.
I’m very proud of N, but I am also more aware than ever that this is only possible due to Todd’s efforts. If it weren’t for my husband I couldn’t give up this much time. In the last month he has taken on all of the cleaning, laundry, and a good chunk of parenting.
I truly realized what a gift he is when I opened N’s lunch box yesterday. Sitting in there was a note. When I make their lunches I always write them notes, but since Todd has been home he is in charge of getting them ready for school. I knew I didn’t write it, so I had to read it. It was such a sweet note. Todd was congratulating him for his part in the play and telling him how proud he is of everything N has been accomplishing. I teared up.
Like I said, God has given me many gifts and blessings.
