Today I received a call that I've been waiting on for the last four years. I was offered a role in THE LION KING!!!!! I'm so happy right now that I don't have words that would adequately describe how I feel!

I first auditioned for The Lion King during Spring Break while attending The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 2002. Over the last few years, I've auditioned several other times with seemingly little or no results. Sometimes, I told myself (or whoever would listen) that it was my last time trying. God, I'm glad I didn't quit. I guess that's one more task I can check off my to-do list.

I'm gonna take Cherita out this weekend to our favorite restaurant and surprise her with the good news. Wow...The Lion King...Thank you, God.
