How am I feeling today?
PROUD. PROUD. PROUD.
I am proud of my Scarlett who performed beautifully as the Angel Gabriel in her preschool Christmas pageant!
From her pedestal she said loud, clear, and enthusiastically:
"Don't be afraid...Go to the town of Bethlehem!"
Scarlett played head angel very well, and I was surprised to see that she had the only speaking part in the program, aside from Pastor Gregory who did the narration.
Her teachers told me that they pulled names out of a hat to decide parts, and when they pulled Scarlett's name to play Gabriel, they said, "We know she can do it!!" They practiced with her a lot, but never had any doubt that she would perform the part well.
I am so happy for Scarlett!
I know that it will be a special childhood memory for her...
as it was a special memory for me as her mother.
I only wish my camera was in video mode when she delivered her line.
No matter...I'm still proud as proud could be of my little girl...who is not so little anymore!
PS - Thank goodness my friend Kimberly got this video!
