For me, those times happen when I get to watch my kids killing it at the one thing they love the most. For Mia, that's theater. And I will just be honest, for every perfect role that Mia gets, there are ten (or so) rejections. Theater is not an "every kid gets a trophy" kind of thing. And that's good for her.
But, man-oh-man, she rocked the whole Dorothy thing. She just did.

I love the young woman that she is becoming and I pray she is blessed with a few more perfect moments in her sweet life.
But, more importantly, I pray she continues to use the gifts that the Lord has given her to His glory.
