But they don't hold a candle to watching my own girls twirl and kick. There is nothing like sparkly costumes and a touch of make-up to make any girl feel like a true prima ballerina. Add the fact that the entire recital is danced to praise music and it makes for quite an emotional day. There is nothing like watching the two most precious girls in your world envisioning themselves as the Sugar Plum Fairy as they dance their hearts out to "Everlasting God". As I watched Chad watching his girls, I couldn't help but think about the truth of the lines from the Steven Curtis Chapman song "Cinderella":
So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I will dance with Cinderella
I don't want to miss even one song
'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she'll be gone...
