     Not long after R passed away; a friend's son got married.  It was a small wedding, and many of my friends were there.  During the reception, the college kids were dancing and having a blast.  My friends got me out to dance with them.  We had so much fun, and for a brief bit of time, I forgot the reality of my life.  
      Since that time, I have been to many weddings.  My kids are at the age where all of their friends are getting married.  I am happy to say that I have danced like no one is watching at every wedding.  My friend whose son was married after R passed away has been diagnosed with Alzheimer Disease.  I often remember her dancing at her sons wedding and having a blast.  It has become a metaphor for me and my life. Dance!!  No matter what happens in her life, she and others will know that she danced her heart out that that wedding. I plan to really kick up my heals when M and C get married some day.  I plan to kick up my heals every day of my life.  I'm alive! I'm alive! I'm alive!  My life is a privilege that others have been denied.  Why would I waste it??
     This past weekend, I was at another wedding.  You can bet I was out there dancing with Dr. T and am lucky that my daughter and her friends will let me dance with them!!  Life is too short to sit on the sidelines and not dance!!  I hope you (and I) always dance.
