Dance with Me

Tiny Dancer. Dancing Queen. Dancing in the Moonlight. None of these song titles-turned-blog post titles is quite right. Celie is by no means tiny (and she's fine with that, as are we!) We do treat Cel like royalty; we can't help but coddle her... but she's more princess than queen. And although she's often still up when the moon is out, Celie doesn't dance anymore.
But she will dance again someday. And when we're reunited, it will be a joy to watch her recitals, and to dance with her...

Celia looks beautiful in her awesomely colored tutu! (Made by Bridget?) And she'll definitely dance again . . . hope the front row at the Heavenly Ballet has plenty of room for us all! We have our tickets!

Do you think they make that tutu in my size? Probably not!

Dance, Celia, Dance! Even if it's just in her spirit, she dances! :)

Adorable! What a beautiful image to keep close in my heart and mind.

I agree with all you wrote Jenni, and to me Celia is dancing in our hearts everyday. Save me a ticket for a front row seat, Celia!

I was just telling Aunt Sally this evening that Celie and I had enjoyed dancing today... Celie on her tippy toes... me on my knees with my arms around her... singing along with Moose A. Moose, and swaying with the music... "friends are the friendiest, everywhere I go." Truly, we were both smiling.

But that tutu makes it art!

Beautiful words as always! Thanks for reminding us to find joy in all things. Celia will be dancing on the streets of gold!
