Recently, I attended a community packed house at Star Hall for the production of “Project Rescue: Save the Planet.”

This was a one-act musical revue written by Michael and Jill Gallina and performed by students from Moab Charter School.

With awe and appreciation, I had pleasure of witnessing 105 of our community children sing, dance, perform a most beautiful expression of self-confidence, talent, community respect.

Our community is swelling with pride and satisfaction at the success of all of us, from children, teachers, principal, parents, families, friends. 

I recognized a few of my most talented art class participants from ABCD class for Mommies and Me; Head Start graduates, former Red Rock Elementary School students, daycare attendees, families employing me as nanny/caregiver, and friends young and aging.

Thanks everyone for being you, sharing your special talents/stewardships/gifts. 

I sincerely appreciate caring, sharing, children, and talents.

Hopefully, I pray that I contribute my share, as I remain humbled in the presence of such a blessed life with many gifts in grand Moab, Utah.
