A Love Story - In Spectacular Performance (Video)

Paddy and Nico - Britain's Got Talent

Paddy and Nico - Britain's Got Talent

Yesterday, during a consultative visit to my daughter's oral surgeon, here in Montego Bay, I ran into an old college mate, Silma.


Silma is one of the most bubbly person I know, nothing gets her angry. Anyway, back to the story...

She pulled out her phone and shared this little Youtube video with me and my daughter.

I was assuming it was something funny (because that's kinda her personality) but it was not.

It was what I call, a "Love Story - In spectacular performance".

It has nothing (essentially) to do with Jamaica but I figure you'd like it.

An 80 year old grandmother, demonstrated that belief in self and a deep passion for something (Yeah, I shared another example last week) can work magic!

And this love was for her something that she always loved; dancing!

Paddy, dancing salsa, with Nico, a gentleman who could easily be her grandson, stole the show at Britain's Got Talent.

That was a couple years ago, but I hope that, old or young, it inspires you. Be sure to listen to her story after the performance - very touching.

I thought you might like it, and hence I'm in turn, sharing it with you and all my other readers.

Thanks again Silma!

Awesome
by: Hughette

We can do all things through Christ Jesus who gives us the strength... but we hold ourselves back with our doubts, fears and procrastination. I have been reminded and inspired. Thank You.

The Dancer
by: Valrose Minott

Ok, you made my day. I spent the afternoon with my children, had supper and was reveling in how beautiful the day was. We finally got warm weather - a high of 21 degrees, yes! I was outside and started napping only to be startled by a grey squirrel, not long after I came inside and checked my email.

You touched me with this story. She is awesome, beautiful and made me smile. I could not have had a better end to a wonderful day. This lady has moves and I truly hope that I will follow my passion as she has.

All my best,

Valrose
