At this time of the year…I think you know the movie “It’s A Wonderful Life is shown on television. Millions of people can remember the heartwarming tale of George Bailey and the crisis that got him to appreciate his life. Also to meet a friendly angel named Clarence.
We have seen it so many times. The money is lost. Uncle Billy did something…..then the panic ensues. Christmas will not be so great this year. George might go to jail. Zuzu has a cold.
Did you ever think about Uncle Billy? If he had not absentmindedly stuck that money in the newspaper and given it away to old cranky Mr. Potter—there would be no story.
It’s easy to say…what an old fool. But I think everyone has had an Uncle Billy moment. You put something down and then……….. But what is even worst is that Old Man Potter had been sticking it to the Bailey family for years. Finally when Uncle Billy feels proud of Hero Harry in the newspaper and asserts himself back at Potter….then the disaster strikes. So Uncle Billy felt good for a two whole minutes.
Then he discovered he had lost the money. This is for all the Uncle Billy’s out there. Enjoy those two minutes!
