~I Hope You Dance, Lee Ann Womack~

I hope you still feel small when you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I'm not a great dancer, but I love to dance & I always have so much fun. I guess that's why Zumba class is one of my cardio faves. Dancing is a wonderful stress reliever. I love to put on one of the cable music channels & dance in front of the TV. So glad hubby isn't watching though. emoticon

The word "dance" can also be a metaphor for our lives. Sometimes the dance is hard & the steps are difficult & we're not really having that much fun. Unfortunately, that happens sometimes.



But there are always things to enjoy, even when times are tough. You just might have to look a little harder to find them.



Today, rain or shine, I hope you dance!! If you've never danced in the rain (with no umbrella), you're missing a real treat!!!!



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Love that song. emoticon for the reminder to dance. Last weekend when I was caretaking my mom and doing steps and some low impact aerobic moves to meet my step goal, my mom said "I watched you dance" It motivated her to get up and walk down the ramp a couple of times.

    Life's a dance, you learn as you go.
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow.
Don't worry 'bout what you don't know,
life's a dance, you learn as you go.
~~ John Michael Montgomery
