The last thing the party host said was “Goodbye everyone! And you can take all the balloons you want!”. Ryan immediately ran to the front and grabbed one of the 2 big balloon arrangements decorating the stage. The first thing that entered my mind was “Why in the world would you want to bring that home?” He got different kinds of stares from people as he walked across the party hall carrying that big balloon tower, that was at the very least twice his size. Some looked amused, some looked puzzled, but he couldn’t care less. All he thought was “I’m bringing these balloons home!” The balloons wouldn’t even fit in our car. Luckily, the party was just in our village so he actually walked home with it. And then as if that wasn’t enough, he came back to get the other balloon tower! Now his room is filled with balloons!
I actually admire Ryan’s boldness! He was told he can have the balloons, so he charged and took what he wanted! Without hesitation, no if’s, no but’s. Something we can all learn from.
