Good Evening God!
My wonderful husband Kit and I were photographed by our grandson Mark (going to Vassar) a few nights ago at dinner in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.
Yes, I am giving Kit a Loving Look! (The same Look that so embarrassed our daughters years ago.) And this was even before our young waiter chatted Kit up about the Boston Marathon! I am actually enjoying being the wife of a Minor Celebrity. Better yet, he’s a really good Human Being!
Recently I was chatting with a friend whose daughter was an excellent basketball player. She said that when she and her daughter went to the mall, the young girls would tug on their mothers’ sleeves and say, “Look!” The young girls would ask for autographs. Young men don’t want an autograph, but a surprising number want to chat with Kit or have their picture taken with him.
We ALL need good role models, God! We need people we can admire and learn from. Ah, but that takes being ready. I am just beginning to learn the essential nature of daily floor exercises from my friends. I’m ashamed of being so SLOW!.
The WWJD (What Would Jesus Do) bracelets of a few years ago show our need for Role Models. Of course, with Jesus as Role Model it is important to realize that we must open ourselves to the Helper — That same Great Sprit who raised Christ Jesus from the Dead.
I guess, God, I am an example of knowing with my head — what to do — but failing to follow with my Whole Heart. I confess that. And I ask again for Your Help!
