Quilt With Us

I had to brag a little, hope you ladies don't mind. Alexa (my daughter) is trying out for Cenla Idol on July 30th. IF and that's a big IF (we're not getting our hopes up just yet) she wins Cenla Idol she will then go on to American Idol. This has been something she has talked about since American Idol became so famous. She said she's got to try or she'll never know and she needs to try before she signs on the dotted line to join the marines. So if you ladies could keep her in your thoughts and prayers, her & I would much appreciate it! I am so very proud of her for following her dreams. Most people have dreams but that's all they are...are dreams. Even if she doesn't win, she will know she tried and it will boost her confidence to know that she can at least TRY anything she sets her mind too.

Hugs,

Maria

Pam, you and Sunshine are right! I'm just so proud of her for even having the guts and heart to get up in front of people she doesn't even know and sing! Me? I would have crumbled when they called my number! LOL

She gave it a great try...she'll have many friends to entertain when she goes through boot camp!

Sorry to hear that she didn't make the top 10, but it's nice to hear that she won't give up on the dreams.  Best of luck to her in the future ( especially boot camp lol)

Good for her!  It's nice to hear of someone pursuing their dreams.  Lots of luck and best wishes to her... I'd say to 'break a leg' but that might not be a good thing if she's planning on going into the marines lol.

Thank you to everyone of you for your support, thoughts and prayers as Alexa follows one of her dreams. I've told her win or lose, it doesn't matter because she tried and proved to herself that has/had what it takes to follow a dream! Something I never did when I was young. As I find out what TV station the local try outs will be I will post and of course I'm going to have a video recorder and hoping that they will the participants the option of purchasing a cd/dvd of their try out in front of the judges. That's one area I won't be able to go with her. I'll be a nerve wreck but I'll be with her in spirit and right outside the door! lol

How refreshing to hear she is going to follow that dream as far as it takes her!  So many of us dream but never try to make it happen.  Please keep us posted and let us know if she gets to the next step!

We are wishing her all the luck in the world! I'm hoping she will do well and make it a dream come true! Please keep up posted on what is happening so we will not miss a single episode of the show when she makes it. Fingers and toes are crossed!
