Flourish Where You Are

Little Jamie Scott was trying out for a part in the 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, 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.’

Whenever you are disappointed with your spot in life, stop and think about little Jamie. Learn to appreciate and “flourish wherever you are.”
