When she was in 5th grade, Meghan participated in “Puttin’ on the Hits”, a lip-sync contest. Her performance was “Part of Your World” from Little Mermaid – with a trunk of treasures and a mermaid costume. Since it was being run by the kids, the stage hands were a bit behind and hurriedly set her stage – to her frustration. The audience could see her wildly gesturing to them from offstage (in her sparkly mermaid costume) as she sent the kids back on stage to move the trunk. Meghan then calmly came out, settled herself into a relaxed, floating, mermaid position next to the trunk and did a beautiful enactment of Ariel wishing to be part of our world.

After the performance, my mother leaned over and whispered to me, “That child will always find center stage.”

You’re right, Mom, she always has.  I am grateful that she lives locally and we can still be a part of each other’s world – and I am grateful and honored to be her Mom.

From my heart to yours, Diane
