Do you ever have a moment where you are utterly in awe of the people around you?
I had a moment like that recently.
In my job with the Festival, I work with over 200 performers a year. Needless to say, there's no way I can form close, personal relationships with every single one of them. Nevertheless, they all tend to be very sweet, wonderful people.*
Anyway, there is another stay-at-home mom who performs for us. She and I have always performed in different groups, and have never really gotten to know one another, beyond the basics.
The other day, we were making arrangements for her to bring me some things I needed for work. In the course of the conversation, she offered to watch Miles for me once in awhile during the day, so I could run errands, or just have a break.
I am so blessed to work with such amazing, giving people. I cannot believe the incredible selflessness of her offer. I hope that this season sees the beginnings of a new friendship with this wonderful lady. :)
*For the most part. As in any job, I occasionally meet people I'd like to drop-kick . . . :)
