There was a lot of work that went into this production. It was hours of putting it together, hours to set it up more hours to design and decorate a runway and make and display decorations on the tables, and a lot of talent to put the outfits together for each girl in different areas. There were even changing areas behind the "stage" for the girls to change their outfits and not have to worry about being walked in on.
I think the girls had a lot of fun and they really enjoyed being in the spotlight and getting their pictures taken. There was also a potluck where all the mom's made italian dishes to share. All in all, it was a really nice Mother-Daughter evening.
The biggest worry for me, was taking the time to help put it all away. I thought it would not be done until very late, but every single girl and every mom pitched in and starting taking it all down. When everyone worked together, the job was done in just over an hour. It was amazing to watch all the work just disappear in moments. One of the young women made a comment on it taking a lot less time to take everything down than it did to put it all up in the first place. What a wonderful way to teach the girls that when we all work together the job is made light.
Galatians 6:2,9 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
