Yesterday at church, Izzy and I sang a song together. We sang Izzy’s favorite song, “The Miracle”. She has never sung a solo in front of an audience before and she was very nervous. We practiced a lot and said our prayers and I said a lot more prayers in my heart. She was so scared but she did it! As we were performing, the fact that I was singing with my daughter, the beauty and truthfulness of the words of the song, and thinking of some friends in the congregation and their heart aches made my emotions get the best of me and I had to stop singing to cry a bit. I was embarrassed, but truly could not pull myself together! Izzy kept singing and carried us through! I am proud of her! She did it! The members of our ward are so kind and loving and lavished her with love and praise, and even cards and gifts afterwards! I am so blessed to be among some of the most caring and sweet people I have ever known. I am so thankful for the opportunity we had to sing together. Hopefully she will do it again someday!
