Flutter Your Wings

Sometimes Emerson goes in her room and shuts her door and all I can hear is her radio blaring and a thumping sound. If my dad is reading this he may chuckle and recall that in our home growing up I used to do the same thing. I loved to dance. Never took long term dance lessons just a jazzercise class I think...but boy could I crank up the radio and jump around like a mad hatter. Our home was older so the ceiling would shake and I remember hearing once or twice " turn it down"!
Tonight I was surprised to find myself racing up the stairs and storming into her room. When I asked her what she was doing she informed me she was pretending to be a butterfly at the butterfly ball. Umm how can I argue with that? She told me she was spreading her wings and practicing her butterfly moves....at once I was transformed into a carefree girl dancing around my room without a care in the world. My audience was cheering me on and I was filled with joy. Flutter your wings my child before the time comes when your forget how good it feels to just dance!

Ash Wednesday

Today begins our Lenten Journey...we are going to St Mary mass at noon. Forty days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. At the end of our journey we celebrate that He is risen!
