I’m officially a director! This weekend The Thick Chronicles went up and it was incredible! The first night we were sold out and the final night we came close to capacity. Needless to say we had a great crowd! There were so many people who came out to show their support it was so overwhelming. I was so proud of the cast they really did a wonderful job. Everyone put their best foot forward and delivered a phenomenal performance. I was very proud to say that I directed it.
I will admit, this was not an easy process. I have learned so much along the way. I have made some new friends and met people that I would love to work with again. Traveling this road there were moments when I questioned what I was doing and if I was even the right person for the job. I was challenged in ways that I never have been before. But in the end, I sat at the sound booth and watch the show go up and tears of joy came to my eyes and I knew at that moment I as doing exactly what I was supposed to do, I was made for this!
I was meant to be a part of this production with this cast and this crew, we became a family. Just as in any family we had our ups and downs, but we come together in the end and held each other up to shine as one. I am so blessed to be in a place where I can do what God has called me to do. There is nothing more fulfilling. I hope and pray that I am given more opportunities to do what God has placed in my heart. I hope that I always have to courage to follow my dreams and to never let anything or anyone stop me. I am human and there are times when I want to give up and run away but I pray for the strength to never stop as long as the passion is burning deep inside me I will not lose!
To my girls Brighter Than Before, Tracy, Alison, Jami & Toya; ladies you inspire me so much. I know that between the 5 of us (by the way 5 is my number) we are a force to be reckoned with. We are powerful beyond measure and there is no limit to what we are about to accomplish. We balance each other out so well that there is no way we can go wrong. I am excited to see what God has in store for us. The sky is not the limit it is the beginning. I love ya’ll!
