#bethelight – day 361

I was thinking this morning how awkward and embarrassing I often am in social situations.  No wonder my teens laugh at me.  Then I was thinking of some of the “miss-fits” I work with in the theatre.  It dawned on me… rescuing a wallflower is an act of kindness.  At our cast party over the weekend I had the opportunity to chat with a young lady who struggles to fit in.  Do you know what I found out?  Her life is pretty tough – her dad had passed away when she was small, moved around, mom doesn’t work, several step dads or boyfriends, recently moved to my town and struggles to find friends; she is a good little artist; she is thoughtful and caring.  Turns out that she was a very interesting person to talk to.  So, today, I’d like to encourage you to mosey on over to that person awkwardly standing over to the side and strike up a conversation.  I you find out that they are the most interesting person you talked to that day.
