This Five Minute Friday shout out is to James
from Bella Gelateria in Vancouver
We met him on vacation
and he captivated us right away
Ever met someone like that?
Someone with whom you feel completely
And the irony is that although we had waited
for over 30 min
just for an opportunity
his internationally award winning gelato
he made us feel like celebrities
news paper clippings on the wall
(proved that he was the best)
tasting his gelato and actually meeting him
Because just as we were leaving...
he pulled up right beside the crowd
and began manually unloading his own truck and
he saw us
talk with us
And maybe he felt it too...
that we were
because he invited us in
showed the kids how to make gelato
and told them
that reminded us to
"love what you do"
then "try again"
because as he simply put it...
Most people in life are afraid to fail, so they never try
which means... they have failed already
