#bethelight – Day 356, 357, 358, and 359

The past 4 days I have dedicated myself to the cause of helping young people discover their stories, discover their worth and discover their potential.  Mamma Mia closed last night.  The seniors gave directors gifts.  They gave me a "journal" with letters in it from each of them.  These message from the kids I love… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 356, 357, 358, and 359

#bethelight – Day 354 and 355

Yesterday was a show day, so I didn't come home until very late.  When I got home my son wanted some help.  So my act of kindness was to sacrifice sleep to help my son with the things he needed. Today is Halloween.  Today I will support a different high school theatre program.  Today I… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 354 and 355

#bethelight – Day 353

Today I've been thinking about how letting go is an act of kindness.  If you have been carrying around a grudge, it's time to let it go and forgive them.  I know.  It's harder to do than to say.  I am discovering that I don't need the negative energy in my life.  Remember that forgiveness… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 353

#bethelight – Day 349, 350, 351, and 352

It's been a busy week with the opening of my show.  I leave home early and come home well past bedtime.  I am pouring everything I have into my job and helping these kids and my co-worker succeed.  I am sacrificing sleep and energy for this... only 5 more performances left.  I can't say that… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 349, 350, 351, and 352

phew!!! Ii made it to opening night.... and the biggest secret I've kept for awhile. My act of kindness over the past 3 days was prepping for my son to move home today and surprise his little sister at her opening night performance.  Her reaction made it all worth it!  I also would say my… Continue reading #bethelight – day 346, 347, and 348

#bethelight – Days 341, 342, 343, 344, and 345

My show opens on Wednesday.  Every waking moment is spent on getting the show ready.  I guess that is my act of kindness over the past couple of days.  However, I am not sure if it counts.  I'm just doing my job... even if most of it is a volunteer job.  It just isn't giving… Continue reading #bethelight – Days 341, 342, 343, 344, and 345

#bethelight – Day 339 and 340

Wow... with a week to go before the opening of Mamma Mia at my high school, I barely get time at home.  It is hard to blog.  It is hard sleep.  It's hard to get "real" food.  However, I am working my tail off to be patient and to help these hard working kids and… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 339 and 340

#bethelight – Day 336, 337, and 338

Holy cow!  Tech week is always a cray week.  This has been a big project.  I knew that it would be going to be.  My act of kindness in the past few days has been working my tail off to make the tech day go smoothly and to make my director friend and the kids… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 336, 337, and 338

#bethelight 334 and 335

The last couple of days I have done a ton of listening... mostly to stressed out teens.  I am realizing that I am often needed to be a "mom" at school to many kids who don't get to see their mom or have mom with so many issues they can't help their kids.  However, my… Continue reading #bethelight 334 and 335
