Is inspiration dead?

Wow! 40 Years of making magic!

Well, I thought it was.

And then I saw her. She hollered my name across the room. That made me smile.

She came out from behind the counter with her arms spread wide, her smile wider. And that almost made me cry.

She hugged me for a long time. The kind of hug you get from someone you’ve known forever and haven’t seen in years. That made a tear escape and roll down my cheek.

She quoted some of my recent postings. And that made me realize I have a job to do. We all have a job to do.

And that is to make a difference in someone’s day.

No. Inspiration is not dead. It’s waiting for you to see it.

She quoted some of my postings. You can’t help but feel good.

      Thanks Craig. I’ve only had the privilege of knowing Carolyn for a couple of years. But she made a big impact on us, as many cast members do.

      We got to see her just a couple of weeks ago. She announced her retirement on December 1 after 40 years of service. She will be missed by Guests and Cast Members alike.
