I Did Something Good

One day you take an improv class on a whim and you talk one of your friends into doing it with you.  Your friend hates it and quits but you love it and keep going.  You get hired to perform with the company you’re taking classes with and you start doing shows.  You and a few of your friends realize that you could run your own theater company, so you do it.  You hire more people.  Some leave, some stick around.  The ones that stick around become your friends.  In fact, they become more than your friends.  They become your family.  A surprising little hilarious family.

You’re very proud of this little family you’ve helped create and this family may be struggling financially, but all you need is love.  And you love it.  Then something great happens.  Your family wins a grant for $20,000.  But that’s not even the best part.  The best part is the celebration.  The best part is hearing your family tell you how much this little group means to them.  It’s hearing all the stories your family tells about how this little group has changed their life.  It’s realizing that you did something to help good people and you didn’t even know you were doing it.

Thank you, pH.
