And Clark and Bethany merely players.
I feel so grateful for the opportunities my kids have had to be involved in some wonderful groups of friends doing great things. Perhaps my real talent lies in being able to recognize truly superb people and leeching myself and my children on to them so we can come along and enjoy the benefits of their talents! Does that make me a parasite? I hope not, but I am so thankful for the experiences for my children. I could not provide this kind of activity on my own.
Some of these guys were in the play and some were there to support Clark. Truthfully, some thought it was hysterical that Clark "had" to hold hands with a girl in the play.
They'll see the light sooner or later.
