I printed out a copy of the "I Hope You Dance" post with your comments for Miss Darcy. She left a comment there, and I am going to repost it here so everyone who has been waiting for an update can read it.
Her amazing spirit comes through in her words.
"hi,this is miss darcy. i would first like to thank everyone for all of the well wishes! i especially would like to thank billie for writing about this. i can't tell you how lucky i consider myself to have been able to teach your girls this year! every time i would talk to my mom about how well the class was going and how proud i was of eden and holland, my mom would begin to tear up. it is of no surprise that on the night of the performance there was not a dry eye in the house when the curtain opened on the those 5 little girls. i have taught for 16 years and every now and then i am blessed enough to have moments like that! as far as my health goes... i am doing just fine! :-) i have a lot of work ahead of me, but by this time next year i should be back to normal! i fully intend on starting the dance season again this year as soon as i am on crutches. i will be in a wheelchair for a while and great minds must think alike because i felt the same as eden did when i was told! now i'm just going to have to find some stickers for my wheelchair to try and make it even half as cool as hers is!:-) thank you again to everyone and don't worry, i've already started thinking of ideas for eden's and holland's dance performance for the 2010 recital! we will all dance again!:-)"
Thank you for your comment Darcy. I am so happy to hear that you are doing so well. You are truly an inspiration to me and to my girls and we will continue to keep you in our thoughts.
Looking forward to the 2010 dance season!
And just in case you need a little boost today...here's a picture guaranteed to make you smile.
