Let me just start by saying I love to dance. Always have and always will. I danced as a youth in dance festivals and then in college and as an adult. I have done everything from swing, ballroom, square dance, clogging and a little hip hop. Having said that, I usually had a great partner that always made me look better then I was! I forget steps real easily, so if you have a good partner, you just follow them.
The other night was a youth dance and I drove kids so I stayed to chaperon. It is so hard to sit there and just listen to music! We have a small youth group with maybe 40 kids at the dance. So if I get out there to dance, I really stand out. Rachel invited me a few times to join them which was fun. Especially when Michael Jackson's Thriller came on and no one new how to do the "thriller walk" but me. Of course when slow songs came on I watched all the youth pair up and it was cute to see them go around in their silly little slow dance circle. That is when I really miss Mike. I loved to dance with Mike. We would travel around the entire floor spinning. Dancing was probably one of the times we looked the happiest. It always made me smile to dance with him. He was so good at ballroom and the swing. I will miss those dances. Every time I hear our favorite dance songs, the memories are wonderful put the present moment is hard.
