Support for dance

I remember distinctly when I was a sophomore in college, some 15 or 16 years ago, I was auditioning to get into the dance major at BYU.  I had done the audition, and had to wait several days for the results.  I was hanging out with Mom in the kitchen, next to the stove, and I asked her if she thought I would get in.  She said, "Yes."  She said it so firmly that I said, "What do you mean, are you inspired I will get in or what??"  She told me, "I'm not a soothsayer!  But I think you will get in."  She was right; I got in.  But more than the story, I loved the total confidence she had in me, confidence I didn't have, but that undying support for us is something we will take with us forever.
