Hi. My name is Jasmine Hutchinson (Jasmine Jelise) and my Gold Nugget will center around Christmas Caroling I did some years ago at nursing home with a program called LifeTeen.
It was fun visiting the residents, singing with them and bringing holiday cheer to those who may not feel they have much to celebrate.
One scenario in particular, touched me... We went into a room where a man was seemingly bedridden and his wife looked at him as if she wanted to take his cross of pain and suffering and carry it for him. As we walked in singing with our holiday spirit, she began to cry. I asked if she was okay and she told me her tears weren't of sorrow but of joy. I was overwhelmed with happiness and I hugged her. This hug was to let her know that everything will be alright in the end because God has a plan for all of us, although we may not always agree with it. This was one of my best life experiences, knowing that I was able, even for a moment, to bring happiness to someone who looked so down on luck.
I hope this touches everyone the way it touched me. Thank you for reading.
