Mama Says Knock You OUT! - #Music

We just finished my daughter's dance revue.
It was quite the performance.
It's a yearly thing and it's a big to-do.

I love dancing and love that she loves to dance, but I think she prefers to dance without the big production.

Anyway, one of the performances was like a tribute to Muhammad Ali.
It was fun.



I remember when they wanted to costumes put together and I went to research with my daughter, how he'd dress before coming into the boxing ring.


Today I have to tell her that he has died.

But he lived a full life.

I will have to let the kids read more about this man.

I remember how I used to watch boxing as a child. I would definitely love to see one of his matches right now.




I hope I get to live a long and full life, but don't we all.
We can only trust God with our time and live wisely.

This is them dancing during rehearsals.
Performance night was much more powerful!

  9. What a nice tribute to an amazing man. I think it is interesting that your daughter could do without the big performance, she is obviously very mature and gets joy out of dancing, and doesn't need the reinforcement of an audience! How wonderful.
