I love the thought behind this little story so I selected it for you today.
You are Wonderful
The following true story captured my heart. It happened several years ago in the Paris opera house. A famous singer had been contracted to sing, and ticket sales were booming. In fact, the night of the concert found the house packed and every ticket sold. The feeling of anticipation and excitement was in the air as the house manager took the stage and said, “Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your enthusiastic support. I am afraid that due to illness, the man whom you’ve all come to hear will not be performing tonight.
However, we have found a suitable substitute we hope will provide you with comparable entertainment.” The crowd groaned in disappointment and failed to hear the announcer mention the stand-in’s name. The environment turned from excitement to frustration.
We all need people in our lives who a are willing to stand up once in a while and say, “I think you are wonderful. “
So until tomorrow….Chapel of Hope blog readers...”I think you are wonderful!”

*And something wonderful did happen Sunday before I left! There has been a large branch caught far up on my one and only pine tree left in the front yard (since Hugo) near the den and driveway. It was way too high for anyone to reach without very expensive professional help. For at least two years storms have come and gone and the large branch (that looks like it has been hanging from a thread) has stayed secure.
The doorbell rang around 4:30 Sunday afternoon, after I had returned home from Mt. Pleasant and was working on blogs in my back office. It was Luke. He was so excited and he pointed to the front yard…just a few feet from where my car was parked…the branch had finally fallen! I can’t believe I didn’t hear it and that I didn’t pull any further in or the branch would have hit the car! But Hallelujah and thank you Luke for disposing of it for me.
Luke, “I think you are wonderful!”
