Many of us may feel like we are toiling for nothing. In actuality, we are always preparing. We are preparing for the time that we will be called up. When the big stage requests of our talent and gifts we know we shall be ready. To all the nominees, you are all valued and respected. Your work is not in vain. We can make each other's lives a little more bearable because of your chosen field/career/or path in life.
