Jaya’s Story

Swamp Gum Christmas

“If you can, please bring in decorations for your class friends,” the teacher said, “Class dismissed.”

“They can do it by themselves; after all, they don’t have to worry about being absolutely gorgeous!” (She said this as she was gazing into the mirror.”

“Gloria you can’t just go to the party!” said Wally wisely. “What about your team mates?”

“What about them!!!” “What about ME?”

“Gloria, the world doesn’t revolve around you.”

“Actually…”, she protested.

“And, what about the secret Santa presents?” “Weren’t thinking to give, were you?” Wally asked.

“Well, no but…” Gloria explained.

“Gloria, present and parties are fun but you NEED to think about others,” Wally said wisely.
