I was thinking about my mom while driving home from work earlier. My mom is a lot of things: smart, generous, compassionate, spirited. She’s also really encouraging. I was passing through The Dance Company office before class earlier when she waved at me from her desk. She was obviously busy shuffling papers around and talking on the phone but she paused for a moment to wave and mouth noiselessly to me, “You’re incredible, Tiger Lily.” I’m thankful for that, for her.
By the way, her birthday is tomorrow. If you think of it, please say a prayer of blessing for my mom.
