>My Mom has a very good friend by the name of Cher. When I was young she lived close by and was at our house all the time. We thought of her as Aunt Cher. She would have me and my sister Laura over for sleep overs all the time. Here is the cool part. She danced when she was our age. She had tons of old dance costumes, AND an old spotlight. We would dress up and she would turn on the spotlight….The music would come on….we would whirl and twirl, jump, pose and prance. This would go on forever until we collapsed into giggling, sweating heaps of joy. I loved those times. I hold them SO dear, they are some of my most cherished memories. I promised myself that I would pass on the tradition. So I saved all my dance costumes….
Last night we had friends over. They have little girls. Out came my costumes. There was prancing and twirling, Ohs and Ahhs. My heart danced and pranced with them. How priceless! All I need is a spotlight….
