And yet, Saturday night, people paid $25 each (not us, though! LOL) to shake his hand and say good job! Who else have I overlooked in life, and maybe should have shook their hand a few more times? I say -- take every opportunity you get. We always thought Kent was good -- extremely good -- but I don't know that anyone would have guessed -- probably even Kent -- that he would be where he is now already in his life.
The performance? Extraordinary. I kept thinking, "I can't believe I'm sitting in Wapak watching such talent!" Amazing! Kent, Robert Roldan (cuter in person), Alex Wong (my gosh, the muscles that man has -- and he said he was back to 60% -- I would love to see 100% because he was amazing!), and Allison Holker, who did some of my very favorite dances on SYTYCD last year. Top that off with the dancers from the Dance Centre, and we were in for a real treat! :)
So.....I guess my point is that we never know what God is preparing us for. Last year this time, I'm guessing Kent thought things weren't going right for him, when in actuality, God had a different plan for him! He just needed to wait for it to be revealed to him!
I hope he makes it big. How fun that would be. But, I also hope (as I have heard his family and friends have told him) that he never forgets his roots -- his hometown of Botkins, where he went to school.....and his dual hometown of Wapakoneta, where he went to dance school. I can't wait to see what God has in store for him!
Until next time,
