We’re Whos, here, we are Whos here,
I’ve always wanted to live in a musical. When I was a kid, I loved Oklahoma, Sound of Music, West Side Story. I seriously thought that, if the moment was right, maybe if the stars aligned, people would break out into song and dance. I was sorta right. Because in my house, one needs to be able to talk in movie lines and song lyrics to effectively communicate. At any moment, someone might break out with a quip from the Princess Bride, or Finding Nemo. They might sing Tomorrow from Annie, or My Favorite Things like Julie Andrews. But, most recently we’ve found ourselves speaking in “Seuss” --
It’s suppertime, son, and the time is near
Why, you ask? Because David and Sarah are performing in the community theater’s production of Seussical, a hilarious conglomeration of Dr. Seuss’ fun work, from Horton hears a Who to Horton Hatches an Egg.
On the 15th of May, in the jungle of Newel,
in the heat of the day, in the cool of the pool
As the Christmas season draws close (and the
from the play linger in my head), one line has stood
out to me-- “We are here, we are here!” You know the
story – that part where, after everyone has called
Horton names and they’re about ready to boil the
speck that contains Who-ville, Horton calls out to the
Whos to send up a cry to prove themselves as
real. “We are here, we are here!”
So as this season approaches with its whistles
Thank you for all your support and enthusiasm this
year – your letters have been a great blessing to me.
I’m thankful for all the Lord has done in my life, for
giving me stories that I pray touch lives, for letting me
do what I love best for the One I love best. Thank you
for sharing in the journey with me!
