Some Reasons To “WOOO!”

Let’s talk about some awesome, shall we?

One week ago, E went to school Friday morning to discover a sign with the “Senior Favorites” on it and it included his name! He was named “Headed For Broadway” and he took a picture with the caption, “WAIT. PEOPLE KNOW I EXIST?”

We were very excited.

That day was also the start of a workshop he was in charge of for local elementary school kids to learn about musical theatre. He ended up skipping the pep rally that day so that he could do some prep for the workshop. While he was getting supplies he got a text that said he should have been at the pep rally. BECAUSE HE WAS PUT ON THE HOMECOMING COURT.

Talking about a good day!

This week has been homecoming week and we had to buy him a suit and he gets to be part of the pep rally today and the football game tonight. This is all very fun and exciting and exactly what we all need to be focusing on. While we had some bad news this week and I’m sad over our loss, I’m thrilled the universe has given us something to celebrate to help remind us of all the blessings we have in our lives.

While I can’t go to the pep rally today, we’ll be at the game tonight to see E be part of the spotlight for a moment. Talking about a great Senior Year. He also got cast as a Herdman (Claude!) in The Best Christmas Pageant Ever which is going to be tons of fun for him.

We really do live a blessed life with amazing children who give us things to celebrate every day. And that is my salvation right now. They are my strength. They are my joy.

They give me reasons to “Wooo!” even when my heart hurts from a loss. And for that? I owe them the best me I can give them.
