A Child’s Gifts, a Parent’s Pride

This past week, my darling son played the starring role of Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof for his middle school play. He did an amazing job, with the spoken word, singing, and overall stage presence. We couldn’t have been more proud of him. And he was incredibly proud of himself!

Sometimes, witnessing his day-to-day struggles and his overall lack of motivation, I wonder and worry about his future.

But when I see him do his thing on stage, expressing his natural gifts, I know in my bones that every little thing is gonna be alright.
