Tomorrow is the big day and today was a day of preparation.
First we were taken to Universal Studios for live news interviews right next to the Harry Potter ride. My sister messsaged me from Texas to tell me Evelyn was on her local news.
We had all kinds of other preparations today including a meeting about what Evie would want to do for the Vegas show should she win. That would take place on a Friday and Saturday the first weekend of November. So the winner doesn’t necessarily need to be a “Vegas act” as some argue because there are really only 2 shows.
Evie doesn’t expect to win and is not a front runner but the timing of this in connection with Amos’s passing has been so peculiar to me.
Evie is making great friends on set and is loving her time here. She misses her siblings and is so excited that they will be here tomorrow.
Now for voting. There is an app you can download to vote 10 times. There is nbc.com that is also connected to Facebook and you can vote 10 times per email address there. You can also vote 10 times per phone with the number they provide for Evie Clair during the show.
Her song tomorrow is very special to her dad and I can hardly wait for you all to hear it and see her beautiful set.
Thank you all for encouraging me to keep writing the blog. I’ll probably end this one but start another one.
I miss Amos so much and think about him almost every minute. I find myself praying that I will dream about him. Last night I started a dream that he was in but quickly woke up. I felt like Christopher Reeves in the movie “Somewhere in Time” as I tried desperately to fall back to sleep so that same dream would continue.
This photo was from the day Evie first appeared on America’s Got Talent and Amos watched from a hotel near the hospital while recovering from a surgery. I never would have believed at that moment how things would play out. I’m sure there is a purpose and until we understand all we can do is hang on and find joy in the journey.
