I decided I should start off with a cute Vegas “bucket list” story that hopefully will leave you smiling before I write about the hard week ahead. On this particular day Mom and I were sitting on a shuttle bus on the way to our room when we passed the MGM hotel and I looked up in shock at a huge banner. I pointed to this larger than life portrait of David Copperfield who was performing that weekend and I could not believe it. I have always wanted to see him perform but thought it was impossible. Mom smiled at me and said “You never know maybe we can get some tickets.” I of course laughed at the absurdity that we would find last minute tickets. Besides we were only there for a couple of days for a specific reason (which will be unveiled at a later time). I surely was not prepared for this extra excitement.
Before I realized it the hours flew by but it seemed like only minutes. Next thing I knew there I was standing with David Copperfield tickets in my hand that my mom just purchased. I felt like I needed someone to put life on pause while I tried to catch up. I could not believe my luck, good fortune, or just plain old divine intervention. I was going to go see one of my idols.
