This is Madison's favorite time of the year.
She dances 6 days a week , year round.
But once September rolls around, all thoughts are on the Nutcracker performances.
I remember taking her to see the Atlanta Ballet perform one December~ she was only 3. She was mesmerized!
Ever since that day, she has truly loved performances...everything about that crazy time of year.
This weekend she performed in 6 of the 16 total .
Her schedule has been absolutely crazy.
I'm so proud of her though. She currently has
straight A's & last week was tested for the advanced gifted program.
But sadly, the eve before Thanksgiving, she got a call from one of her very
best friends. She was at the hospital, on the very floor I worked for many years. She had just been told she had an inoperable brain tumor....
I didn't even know what to say to Madison. We just stood in the kitchen and embraced. Her tender heart was just broken for her friend.
This sweet girl, a state & nationally ranked tennis player is being raised by a single mom. Her daddy died of a heart attack, while playing tennis 3 years ago. Daniella saw him pass away.
How much can a 13 year old heart bear?
If you have a moment during this busy time, would you please pray for Daniella and her family.
Blessings to you my dear friends & thank you~~
