When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."

Mondays With Mom...

I have always loved to dance and I am always amazed at the expression and beauty of dance and the way that a dancer can tell a story that can touch you to the core. So You Think You Can Dance has got me so hooked this season. Every once in a while a dance on that show just catches me off guard. That is what this dance did. What a powerful story told in just a couple of minutes.

The choreographer's (whose name is Travis Wall) mother had just had a massive surgery of some sort. This dance tells how he wanted to fix her. Mia (one of the judges) had just lost her mother before the start of this season and she was reduced to tears, because she could relate. My sister who walked the entire end journey with my mom could relate. I could relate. I think anyone who has ever wanted to fix someone could relate.

One thing I find comfort in when missing my mom is that she has been released from a body of pain and no longer needs to be fixed. Thank you, God.


  1. That was a beautiful dance. There are usually a few every season that make me cry.

  2. Beautiful words (again!) from a beautiful lady.
