My husband is an angel

All summer I have been rehearsing with the Lakecity Playhouse ensemble for Les Miserables. We opened in September and I knew my mom was dying to come up and see it. However, since my Dad's layoff earlier this year, I knew it wasn't likely to happen. I asked John if he minded if I flew my  mom up to see it for a weekend. He acted really strange and said that he didn't think it was a good idea with all the expenses we have had lately. I was pretty upset to say the least. I didn't give up. He finally said, "If your mom can get time off, I guess we can do it.". I called my mom right away and asked if she could make it work. She said she wouldn't know until Friday due to scheduling. I was antsy all week. On Friday morning, I was excited to call her after I got Kelsi off to school to see if it would work out. There was a knock on the door around 7:30am. To my surprise, my PARENTS were standing on my doorstep. I was dumbfounded. Completely blindsided. John had bought my  mom a ticket a few weeks before, and then my sister Shayla (after hearing that my mom was coming) bought my Dad a ticket to come up as well!! My mom was quite the good liar, as I had no idea that the story about scheduling was all made up. She looks innocent...but that can be deceiving...
 I was so happy that my parents could come see me in my first musical debut. I love them so much and am so blessed to be their daughter.
