R3 was a labor of love co-written by the most talented actress i have ever met, a dear friend, jennifer cumberbatch and myself. the music was written by jennifer, her sister julie, myself, my brother r.j. and my son-in-law, j.t. the sound-trac was a collaboration between r.j., j.t. and myself. the choreography was dreamed up by melissa martin, a marvelously talented dancer, composer and singer. the costuming and make-up was created and executed by my daughter, suzanne. the cast included women whom i dearly love and will forever be grateful that they were with me through a trial of fire.
that night was a mix of emotions: fear, sadness and grief as well as thankfulness, hope and belief that my Creator was with me through any trial i might face.
that night marked the beginning of a journey - a journey that we all face - a life journey where there is sometimes fear, sadness and grief. that night marked the beginning of a journey where i truly understood what it meant to hold on to my Savior, my family and friends. thank you to all who saw me through that time 12 years ago. i love all of you and am forever grateful that i have you and have a God who holds my hand through anything that life might throw at us.
