Chosen to clap and cheer...

     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 a school 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, 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."


  1. very nice...what an attitude !!!we should teach our children to develop positive attitude towards life...really i like it...short but sweet...

  2. yes, you are right..we should teach our children to accept everything positively in life.
