I Am Onstage Day 3 of the Count Your Blessings Challenge

 An ancient hymn says,
"Hast thou not seen
how thy desires hath been
granted in what He ordaineth?"

 One year for a school Christmas program I got the part of a wind-up doll.

My mother made me a ruffled skirt out of brightly colored tissue paper. I was in actor's heaven. I can still remember being onstage in my costume and being 'wound up' by some boy by a cardboard handle attached to my back.

Needless to say my love for all things dramatic was born.

It was a blessing that has been threaded through my entire life.  Last year I had the privilege of staging my own play and adding in a monologue for the main character based on my feelings as a young girl playing that doll.

Little did I know!
