You know, something I have realized since I lost my Mom is that no one else ever loves or appreciates your children like your mother does. The entire time we were visiting DD in Denver I kept thinking of going home and telling my mom about her life and then I would realize that I couldn't do that. I tell my friends, but for the most part I think they get a little tired of hearing and don't really understand all she has been through to become a dancer. My mom was always very happy to hear the goings on and go to see her dance. She understood how hard DD has worked to get where she is.
Well, I got a package in the mail from DD this week with my birthday present and she included the newspaper article from the Vail International Ballet Festival. I am going to share it with all of you, my captive audience and hope that at least some of you are duly impressed. :-D
The pictures are beautiful and out of 4 pictures in the article 3 were with my DD. Can you tell I'm proud? This first one is 3/4 of a page on the front of the Spotlight section.
She is the one in the back in the second one. She said the photographer was having fun with her because she wasn't afraid to balance on the side of a mountain. She has always had phenomenal balance.
