Valley Center Stage – A Rave!


I wanted to let everyone in the Valley or close enough to drive to North Bend of a little Gem I have found recently.  It has been here for years and I am sure I must have heard about but had never gone till last week.    It is the Valley Center Stage.  We went to see   “The Christmas Carol”, directed By Gary Schwartz, who also started the Theater.

The play was done in what is called “Story Theater Style”.    I really didn’t know what to expect.  I was very pleasantly surprised.  It was wonderful.    As I said in my first post about this, “my jaw actually hurt from smiling and laughing so much.  (A good kind of hurt! lol!)

The cast was great.  So many of them played several parts and narrated their parts as well.  There was singing and so much joy put out to the audience.  You could tell that the actors, both the adults and the kids involved loved what they were doing and they did it very well.  I have seen quite a few plays and I have see AThe Christmas Carol many times.  I can say that this version of The Christmas Carol is one of my favorites now.  The work and love of the art put it to it showed.    I looked around and everyone was smiling and laughing.    I even cried a tear or two for Scrooge played by Gary Schwartz.    (I don’t consider a movie or play or book to be any good if I don’t get a little bit of a cry out of it, lol.  It could be from being sad or just so much joy.(LOL!)

I finally after all these years reading or seeing it on TV realize that Scrooge wasn’t so bad as he was so sad.  But he finally saw his ways and turned himself around.

Thank you Valley Center Stage actors and director Gary Schwartz for such a great show and opening my eyes up to this form of Theater.  I am really looking forward to going to another show there soon.   I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Again the actors, and director and all the staff who were great also, thank you!  Happy Holidays!

If you don’t live near the area here, check your home town and see if you have one, I think you will find it very entertaining.

 

Happy Holidays!

APRIL IS NATIONAL POETRY MONTH! A WOMAN!


           

A Woman!

 

 

When I think about being a woman,

 

I think about wanting to be loved and romanced.

 

I think of flowers and perfume.

 

Especially being wined and danced.

 

I think of dirty laundry and so many blue jeans,

 

Two boys, three dogs, two cats, one rabbit with

 

schedules, feedings, and a full time job.

 

Let’s not forget my husband’s shirts to be ironed.

 

Not to leave out all the sports I have to watch,

 

 

Then I think of the feelings inside of me.

 

There is the pride, the warmth, the joy I feel

 

the hugs, kisses, most important the love I receive.

 

When I think of being a woman,

 

I think about what a gift this glorious feeling is!

 

And I thank God for making me a woman!

A POEM FOR MOTHERS


A POEM FOR MOTHERS

(THIS IS ALSO FOR ALL STEP MOMS AND ADOPTED MOMS OR CARETAKER OF A CHILD. A MOM IS SOMEONE DEVOTED TO GIVING LOVING CARE OF A CHILD OR CHILDREN)

Mothers aren’t perfect and they sure aren’t given a manual on how to be. Some women become mothers because they want to and some don’t it just happens. Having a baby doesn’t make you a mother. Technically yes it does in the sense you have given birth but not in the sense of loving, teaching, and raising the children to be good people and most of all to know that they are wonderful and so very much loved.

BEING A MOTHER

A moment, your world changes, your life is dramatically different from this moment on.

A beautiful baby is put in your arms, you are no longer the child you are the mom.

That one moment transforms your world.

It doesn’t matter if it is a boy or girl.

For most of us that moment is sheer joy.

It is tempting to see it as a toy.

But now that you hold baby & daddy makes three.

The responsibility is mainly on thee.

Never again will life be the same.

To think it is better is no shame.

As a mommy there is so much joy and love.

This baby is something you will always be thinking of.

With this child you will grow so much.

This gift has such a special touch.

With that love may come some pain

It is all worth it that into your world this baby came.

It touches your life like no other.

There is nothing better than being a mother.
