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

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
