The actor elves are excited about this year’s Christmas show. They have been working on their lines and costumes for weeks. I am sure the show will be a huge hit!
But there was a “little” problem…
This year is a first for Mouse the Littlest Elf. She has a speaking part in the show. She has been so excited.
Now that the show is getting closer, she is feeling a bit nervous. The thought of getting up in front of the entire North Pole has her wanting to crawl back into bed. What if she forgets her lines? What if she messes up? What if people laugh at her?
She was so afraid of not doing well that she thought she might quit the show. Someone else could play her part. She would help with lighting again this year instead.
The other actor elves would not let her quit. They insisted that she stick with it. She has a fun part and they know she can do a great job.
Well, Mouse decided she would keep trying. She was NOT going to quit. She practiced and practiced her lines.
Today, when rehearsals started, she performed perfectly! There was no reason to be afraid about making mistakes any more. She knows her lines by heart. No more nerves!
Now she is just really excited and thankful she hadn’t quit. She can’t wait until show time so she can be part of the big night!
