Today's episode of The Apple Seed shares stories about remembering our worth, or feeling seen by those around us. We all, at one time or another, have felt lost and alone. But, we all have people in our lives who have helped us to feel loved and seen as we try so hard to have a presence in this world. We hope the stories we share with you today spark memories of those people in your life that have helped you to feel that way. (4:27) "Mrs. Ort" by Kim Weitkamp: One of our friends and storytellers often featured on the show, Kim Weitkamp, shares a story about her childhood school teacher, Mrs. Ort. We all have someone who has made an impact in our lives for the better, and they often are someone we think about all the time. Mrs. Ort was that person for Kim. Sometimes all we need is someone to believe in us to help us believe in ourselves. We hope this story reminds you of people who have believed in you and pushed you to be better. (28:29) Radio Family Journal by Sam Payne: Sam shares a memory of a young boy who struggled with feeling lonely at one point in his life. In order to help him get out of that slump, the boy's father helped him to remember those who have shown love to him. This memory helps us to reflect on our own lives and remember the people who have served us or helped us in any small way. We truly will never know how our small actions may help those around us. (34:) Scenes from Peter Pan: This segment features on of our Reader's Theater pieces that was performed in our Apple Seed studio. This piece features scenes from the beloved children's story Peter Pan; some of which you might be familiar. We hope you enjoy the fun voices and sound effects in this fun telling of Wendy, John, Michael, and the Lost Boys and their adventures with Peter Pan as he fights against Captain Hook.
