I want to thank you all for your prayers. I have felt them giving me peace and strength this week. I so appreciate all your active faith in my behalf!

I have not miscarried-- everything seems to be just fine. My husband and kids have been vigilant about keeping me down and resting, and I feel like it's been the right, best thing to do. I am trying to get an appointment with a midwife, but we've been playing phone tag, and honestly, I'm not feeling anxious or worried about it.

I did get out on Tuesday afternoon for our Fiddler on the Roof auditions. (I just couldn't reschedule and let all those kids down!) There's no way I could have done it without the amazing help of my producer, assistant director, and the other audition committee members. My assistant director, Melissa, especially organized the day, numbered the order of the kids auditioning, arranged rooms, ran errands, and even got the kids to bring in a COUCH for me to sit on! Yes, I am one blessed girl! She is awesome to work with!!!

The audition process took AGES-- from 11:30am to 5:30pm that night! I have been known to be faster than that, BUT the kids were all so amazing, that it was DIFFICULT to cast! Thank goodness for the guidance of the Holy Ghost! We even toyed with the idea of double-casting the show, but that means more work for everyone, so I decided to go with giving some of the kids understudy roles. I hope they're all excited to get started on the show. :-)

I will continue to take the rest of this week off, and then see how things go thereafter. I think I'm going to need to commit myself to taking one nap a day, but I feel a calm about everything.

The Lord is so good!

Thanks again, everyone!!!
