Anxious about how I would connect with these kids, if they would listen, if they would learn, and if they would have fun.
The second week I co-directed a musical for the younger kids, while another director covered middle/high schoolers. We learned an entire musical: the story, speaking parts, songs, staging, choreography, how to be on stage, different parts of acting... in a week. IN A WEEK!
Our performance was Sunday. The kids arrived early so we could run the show, get them in their "costumes," play a game and pray before we took the stage.
It went by so fast. The kids did such a fantastic job. The major hiccups happening right before show time resolved themselves and I couldn't have been more proud of the work those kids did. They were awesome!
On my way home after watching the other show, talking with people who came to see it I had this high. This adrenaline rush. I was so happy. Happy for the students that things went well. Grateful to have had such amazing staff and co-director to work with for the week.
The feeling that I had on Sunday, and thinking about it now... I just want to hold onto it. Because I know how quickly emotions can change. Tides can go out. And I... well I just want to Savor the Moment.
Remember, many things in life can wait... and The Sunset Won't.
Is there a moment that you really want to savor? Tell me about it!
Quotes from the book:
Sometimes you look for the trapdoor
and run into a wall instead.
She'd brushed off whatever pinched at her.
But brushing it off didn't mean
it wasn't lurking in the corners,
waiting to pinch again.
