My friend Donna posted a link to Susan Boyle's sensational appearance on "Britains Got Talent" yesterday
I listened once again to Susan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lp0IWv8QZY) singing. Again, her tale, a Cinderella story to be sure, had me sobbing with emotion. The crusty, gnarly oyster, was allowed to open to reveal the most golden of glistening pearls. And the world rejoices again.
How much this reminds me that we are all Susans. We are all oysters with hidden pearls that sometimes, if we’re fortunate, a few people see, appreciate and value. A few of us, even get the chance to broaden the ‘shine’ inside to wider audiences.
I want to remember … to strive always … to SEE each of those pearls that come into my world … to encourage their glowing, to help each ‘oyster’ I meet to shine ever more brightly.
May we each have the courage and conviction to keep shining ...to brighten the world for us all. And for me, some of that glow are scenes like this ... and friends like you.
Shine on, dear hearts ....
