Maybe you saw that Lisa Whelchel, better known as Blair on the sitcom ”Facts Of Life” is now a contestant on Survivor. I have to be honest, I had a negative attitude about it since I’ve heard she was going to be on. Kinda felt like, yea, ok missy child star, being famous once wasn’t enough and now you can go and throw your name and status around. Maybe you won’t have to do as much labor and get more than you fair share of chocolate while you’re on the show. I know that’s terrible, but I’m being honest about my thoughts.
Well, I was stopped dead in my self-righteous tracks by the short 3 minutes of the show I saw tonight. Not only did Lisa NOT reveal about her star-studded past, but she was already sharing her faith and lovingly connecting with two young women as they all cooled off in the ocean. But most humbling was when Lisa said what she’s most excited about is feeling close to God during this experience, and listening to who and what HE wants her to be.
So, it was me being opinionated and judgemental … again. Seems to be just a “fact of life” for me that I need to seriously work on.
