Christmas Connection

Proud Podcast Participant Betsy K. send this. I think it’s brilliant. What do you think?

Whenever I’m disappointed with my spot in life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott. Jamie was trying out for a part in the Christmas play. His mother told me that he’d set his heart on being in it, though she feared he would not be chosen. On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him after school. Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement.. ‘Guess what, Mom,’ he shouted, and then said those words that will remain a lesson to me….’I’ve been chosen to clap and cheer.

    I LOVE it!! We all can’t have the starring role….. we all need someone the cheer and clap for us…. as well all need to cheer and clap for others…. Most of my life has been in the role of cheering and clapping… though I have had my starring roles.. (one which will be next month when some of my jewelry designs will be in a digital beading magazine)….. I really think I’m more comfortable cheering and clapping!

    Out of the mouth’s of babes:I asked my 4-1/2 year old grandson what happens on Chrismas eve and he replied:” Santa comes down the chimney and runs into the kitchen to turn off the burglar alarm!”

    Kids say not only “the darnedest” but the most profound “things.” Bless this child and the wonderful teacher who gave him the role.
