Last night I went to a talent show. The city of Holland hosted an "American Idol" - like event in which twelve participants showed their stuff, and three judges gave their input. Their votes, as well as the votes of the audience, determined who would go and who would stay. Of the eleven who started, one was eliminated. The ten remaining will perform again next week. At that time, the field will be cut down to five, and then on the third week the winner will be determined.
My youngest daughter was one of the eleven brave souls who got on stage and opened themselves to public scrutiny. And she was one of the ten who will perform again next week! So if you are anywhere near Holland, MI next Thursday, please come to the Park Theater at 7 pm and cast your vote for Robyn!
I've always loved hearing her sing. When she graduated from college, I was afraid my days of going to her performances were over. But she's realized she misses singing onstage and is pursuing other venues. I'm so proud of her. She's defining what she wants in life, and she's going after it.
What more could a mom ask for?
