Amanda & I went to see Phantom last night. It was magical! Her birthday was in May & I got tickets for that. We had such a great time. I love spending time with my beautiful Daughter, she is the love of my life. She is all grown up @ 21 & had the same wondrous ratpured look on her face as Christmas morning or when the tooth fairy left fairy dust on her pillow. I saw that & my heart swelled like it did the moment she was born. I was so happy to be able to give her that feeling, am getting "smushy" now as I type. Those of you with grown kids know that, I just realized again how strong a Mothers love is. Dad's love is just as strong, just different than Moms. Nurturing that little person inside your body, feeling them move, I remember after she was born I was sad cause she wasn't "just mine" anymore, had to share her with the world. She is my greatest achievement!
Phantom was a beautiful production, how intricate the costumes & sets. Much sparkle & glorious colors, textures & fabrics. The music is still in my head. The singing amazing! How they do these productions is beyond me. When Lion King came out years ago I promised her we would go, haven't had the chance but it is coming here to Seattle in the Spring so we will go. I'm getting sappy in my old age...J.
