The weekend is here!!

Well, I am just so thankful that i had 3 good days in a row! Whew! Thanks again to those who prayed for me! I think i was at the end of my rope & I needed just a few good days!! 

We're back into another weekend of shows & it is going well. The review was OKAY... not as good as I was expecting... but the audiences are still LOVING it, and that's all that really matters. The reviewer had a lot of good to say, and he even mentioned me (by name!) & said the stage crew deserved a bow - I've never had a reviewer mention us, that i can remember? So that was cool. He just said a lot that i totally disagree with, too! Oh-well. As mom always says, "That's just one guy's opinion!"

Today we have two shows. Ack. Kill me now. ;) Really it'll be fine. Just a long day. But we'll go out to eat together between shows & that's always fun!

Next weekend is the last weekend of the show. And I'm ready for a break!

Last night we had a mini-date. 

Mini-Date: a date squeezed in between work & theater! :) 

The expression on my face is due to me being afraid i would drop my phone. It was easier to hold with my old iphone cover!

In other news...

I read two posts lately that really meant a lot to me & I want to share. 

The first is a tragic story, so brace yourselves. The backstory: One of my very good theater friends moved to NYC awhile back & is there pursuing her dreams. She writes here & here & you should check her out, because she is wonderfully funny & it's fun to read about her adventures! Well, she recently wrote this post telling about how her friend there was raped there in a NYC taxi cab. (Sorry. I told you to brace yourself.) 

Well, her friend is now blogging. I hopped on over to her blog & I have to tell you... i was just amazed to read her story & how God is changing her life through this. You would think after this happened, she would not want anything more to do with God. But she has run TO His loving arms & He is doing a work in her life. Please check out her blog, you will be glad you did. She has only written two posts so far. The first tells what happened & the second one is ... well, it made me cry. In a good way.

I also wanted to share this post with you. Angel is a friend, I met her through my husband as his family has known her family for years & many of them were at our wedding. I love reading her blog. Angel's son Jude is a sweetheart, and he has a rare genetic abnormality. She wrote this post the other day & I thought it was beautiful. It is her response to someone's comment about sweet Jude. I love how it is said with no resentment or bitterness at all towards this person. Just honestly expressing what Jude has meant to them. I could say more, but just read it. It's beautiful and well-written.

Saving the exciting news for last! :) 

I also must share with you that my friend Laura's husband wrote a children's book!! Laura is one of my very best friends and i am so excited for them! It is a great book about a daddy's love for his children & how no matter what they do, he will always love them. Sound like someone else you know? Yes, it also has that deeper message of God's love for us. Good stuff. Check it out! I can't wait to buy a copy!

Well, that's all for now. Have a great weekend!
