Definitely worth dancing about don't you think?
The other reason I titled this post Tears of Joy is that yesterday was also a sad day. My hubby's Aunt Janet passed away about two weeks ago, and yesterday was the memorial. We spent the afternoon at my Mother in Law's house with just the family, and then we headed over to the Portland Center for the Performing Arts to celebrate her life with all her friends!
Aunt Janet helped start the Tears of Joy Theatre with her husband many years ago, and not only created a successful company that has touched the hearts of thousands with their puppets, but she has been a major part of the arts community in Oregon and the Northwest. I didn't have a chance to get to know her that well between when I married into the family and when we lost her suddenly, but she was a wonderful person, and was incredible to see how loved she was an by so many people! It was a wonderful celebration that included everything from people sharing stories, to poetry, to puppets, to opera! Aunt Janet, you'll be missed.
