The Dancing Queen!


It was one of those days...when I got the call.
"Mom, can you be my dance partner?"
"You know I don't dance...." I said.
"But Mom, it's a dance-off at school, and I totally forgot about the event."
 "Please bring me an outfit, one for you and one for me." 
The grade fives will be so disappointed if I don't participate.


I found the right outfits.
A polka dotted dress for me, with black tights,
 and a black jacket, covering my naked  back...
(I could not manage to squeeze into a size 4 dress)
I found just the right beret to compliment my dress and
she wore a lilac colored dress over her jeans with a lilac colored mask.
She could of sold that mask many times that day.


And of course we both danced to the "Dancing Queen" by
the musical, Mama Mia.
I've always loved that musical and can still be seen walking out of the theatre...
dancing and singing to the music of the Dancing Queen.

You've seen our skillful and creative moves,
as we simultaneously danced across the floor.

 And the final score?
TENS from all of the judges....
We won the Dance-Off at my daughters school.
It was a pleasure to receive this honorable award from Simon Cowel.

We informed the class that we had been a mother-daughter team for many years.
There are times when you can get away with anything.

When I got home..my dear man could not believe that I had become his Dancing Queen.
Finally I explained to him, how I had been deprived from this form of art.

One thing fore sure, that if we rush to pursue our daily routines,
life speeds by and we forget to live.

"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives."
Anne Dillard

Remember there is no such thing as in insignificant day.

  4. Way to go Marg - you are so right! If we don't seize every moment and live it to the max, we have only regrets at the end of our life. I love the way you are available at the 'drop of a hat' for your family and friends. You dance, girl!
