Saturday 8th December, 2018
My seven year old son told me, over a leisurely lunch later that day (Saturday
), told me what had transpired at morning at Basketball.
He had been learning junior basketball skills at a kids’ session for an hour that morning with some other young girls and boys, aged between 5 and 8 years old.
He was wearing his scapular under his training shirt. This is worn over the shoulders under a shirt.
Two other boys noticed it.
One of them pointed it out and asked:
“It’s my scapular,” he answered.
The other boy laughed at him…
Without blinking an eyelid, my son pointedly and matter of factly said in reply :
“Don’t you know who made you?”
Then the boy just walked away.
What a clever response! I think his angel was in on that one!!
