Brave special different at Christmas!

Christmas is officially over for another year but I could not let it go before telling you all about the alternative nativity I saw at Christ church Gosport.
It was a really nice candle lit service, and very Christmassy but there nativity was not quite the norm, brace yourselves now… the donkey that carried Mary was disabled!
The nativity shared the story about the poor donkey whose name was Twonkey, the wonky donkey. As his name suggests Twonkey was rather wonky, ‘special’ and unwanted by anyone as a direct result of his wonky-ness that was until Joseph who couldn’t afford an un-wonky donkey came and brought him to carry Mary.
The story ended with a lovely example of how whenever Twonkey went wonky Joseph smiled and put him back on the right track.
Twonkey was very a very special donkey and I love him!
I was at the service with my mate Dan and his sister Kerry, Dan is very aware of out little brave special different thing we got going on and so is Kerry. Upon hearing about Twonkey all three of us burst out laughing and it was great!
It’s the perfect example of someone rising above there disability, proving everyone wrong and achieving there goals. I also think it’s amazing that the nativity has become more diverse and the different version made the whole thing a lot lighter.
