"I Just Feel So Happy Today"

My students are so excited about BizTown. Today they wrote a radio ad, a TV ad, and a web page ad. They got interviewed by Lisa (my boss) and me for the jobs of CEO, beverage manager, food manager, and sales manager. They named our candy and soda business ZZ's Treats. Isn't that sweet? (pun intended)

As one boy was leaving, he said, "Mrs. Zubrowski, I just feel so happy today. I wish every day was this happy. I cannot WAIT for BizTown. I hope I get the job of beverage manager. I will do my best, no buts and no complaints. Do you think I'll get the job?"

I said, "I don't know. A few other people want it, too. I would say go home and pray and ask God about it and trust that He knows the right job for you."

"Okay, I'll do that. Even if I don't get the job, I'm going to be faithful and do my best. I will make sure everything--the tables, the counter, the drink station, everything--is cleaner when we leave than when we get there!"

I'm welling up with tears as I write this. Who could say no to someone with such humility, enthusiasm and desire to do their best?

Where are all the willing workers these days? Hopefully your student will grow up into one of those rare star employees!
Blessed boy!
Reminds me of another quote from a Christmas movie, Holiday Affair, where the cutest little boy says, "I'm so happy! If I was a dog, my tail would be waggin!"

This young man's happiness is infecting more than just his own life. We have all received a blessing from his joy. I hope that he gets the job!
