This story has such a deeper meaning than knowing how to dance. It is about having confidence and believing in yourself even when others doubt what you are doing. I love reading it with my girls, they get so excited when we get to the part where Gerald is dancing and swirling with pride. I don't know about you, but I absolutely love to watch my kids dance. It is the best entertainment around. It instantly brings a smile to my face and laughter to my lips. Dancing brings a sense of freedom...you can be super silly and still look cool =)
The other morning I was doing my exercise tape and my two younger ones wanted to watch. They sat on the couch and were my audience...like I need one when I am jumping, huffing and puffing!!! There came a point when the music was loud and quite inviting. The girls were feeling their rhythms...In the blink of an eye my four year old and two year old were on the floor busting their moves. It was hilarious....we all started laughing so hard that I couldn't finish my exercise. That's okay though...these are the moments that I love.
I hope you go and have a fantastic Friday. Listen closely and may you hear the music that you love.
Dance till the stars come down from the rafters
Dance, Dance, Dance till you drop.
