My oldest and I attended her friend's ballet recital on Friday night. It was an excellent production called Just Because It's June by The Woodbury Ballet.
I chose the dress I wore because my daughter's friend's mother, also a dear friend of mine, gave it to me several months ago and I wanted to surprise her.
We greeted her friend after the production with flowers and the girls posed for a photo together. Even from where I sat in the audience, I could see that my daughter's friend's movements exuded great feeling. She dreams of being a ballerina and then becoming a nun; beautiful dreams fitting for a beautiful girl! I love and enjoy my children and my friends, but I've also come to discover a great capacity to love and take joy in my children's friends and my friend's children!
