23/52 – You were sick in the middle of the night Friday, out of nowhere. Yesterday, Saturday, you lay in the front room all morning, watching videos and sipping water and apple juice. Then you rallied, and seemed yourself again, so we decided the year end dance recital could be attempted. You were awesome; the cutest, most on the ball “bunny dancer” on the stage. But as soon as we arrived home again, you declared yourself “exhausted”. You were in bed for the evening by 5:30pm.
Today, you’re still a shadow of your usual self, and you decided yourself that your best friend’s birthday party would be “too much” for you today. And missing it was your “thorn” for the weekend, you said. But, you went on to say, your “rose” was getting to dance yesterday in the recital.
I love your spirit and determination. The “show must go on” attitude that you bring to everything. Of course, the beautiful post-recital irises that you knew your papa would have waiting for his favourite dancing flower may have helped too 🙂
