Mother's Day

I made it onto the Majesty with very few problems, thanks to our production manager, Ruben. I got to see the outgoing cast do a short intro show last night and had dinner with them. It was great seeing all of them again.

Today is Mother's Day and I would like to say thank you to my mom for being such a great influence on me over the years. My mom has always thought that nothing is impossible. Nothing. She has created and re-created herself professionally over the years. She has also had the same approach to her relationship with God. She has never been content to be stagnant in her walk. It's incredibly inspiring. Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

Sheryl was born to be a mom. She has an unbelievable ability to just know what our kids need. She is firm, but fun. She loves to laugh with them and play--even jumping on the trampoline. She is such a blessing to them...and me. What a gift! It's so fun watching her and learning from her. Happy Mother's Day, Sheryl!

I have been hearing for months about a book called The Shack. Have any of you read it? I finally picked up a copy while we were in Malibu. I keep hearing that you have to plow through until chapter 4. I am only through the forward and chapter 1.

We have rehearsal today and will watch the old cast do their Broadway show tonight. Then we are able to get back on the stage from 11pm til 12:30 or 1am. Whew!

Have a happy Mother's Day, friends!

Stick with "The Shack" and you will not regret it.
Love you, bro.

Thanks for the nice comments, Babe--you are the best thing I have ever done.

Yes - plow through! Once he heads back you will be ENGROSSED in the book and hardly be able to stop. Totally worthwhile read. I feel the need to read it again, just for the comfort of it. You'll understand soon.

I almost gave up on the book in Chapter 4, but I'm really glad I didn't. "The Shack" may be the best depiction of God's love, mercy, grace and redemption (outside of the Bible) I've ever read.

Keep reading! It changed my life. I hope you can "see" the difference in my comments from here on out.

I have been negative and I want now to be positive in all my words!

So glad your family had a great Mother's Day.

I think I was one of the ones that mentioned that you should read it a few months ago ;) Yes-it was amazing, and I definitely want to read it again. It is a beautiful story of our relationship with God-all of who He is. Loved it.

I cannot wait to hear your thoughts once you have read it!

Blessings on your journey~
