The other night I was at the local fall fair and the kids I were roaming around trying to find some healthy food choices, besides yummy Corn Dogs. We noticed the big show that night was the actual North American Touring cast of Disney’s High School Musical Summer Celebration. Right away the children looked up with their best Puppy Dog eyes… “PLEASE!!!!”
Tickets were $30 each… four of us would be $120!! I said sorry but no. It’s ok to say no to children (big lesson for some parents and children).
We continued to wander around when a young child, around 8 years old, tapped us on the shoulder.
“Excuse me miss, would you like these?”
Ange my partner, looked down to see this young leader holding out four tickets to that night’s musical production, fifth row!
“Can we give you anything for them?” asked Ange.
“No, we can’t go and we want you to have them!”
Then he and his mom smiled, turned and walked away into the hustle and bustle of the fair!
Max, this young man, demonstrated selfless leadership. Giving without taking. We must have said thank you 5 times. He just smiled and said “No problem!”
What do you do on a daily basis to give without receiving. Wouldn’t the world be better with more of that? I think so!
