Today we had an amazing moment as we were waiting for Sadie's occupational therapist.
A little girl came up and looked at the fish tank near where we were sitting. Sadie, who happens to be the most outgoing person I've ever met in my entire life, jumped up and ran over next to her and started knelt in the chair next to her facing the tank, so they were side by side and said "Hi, what's your name?"
The little girl responded with her name and then Sadie asked her how old she was and she said she was six and then when Sadie said she hadn't heard her she repeated it again.
I didn't think anything unusual had happened.
And then her grandmother looked at me with wide eyes and said "she has never in her entire life responded to another child."
Can I still blame the pregnancy hormones for how teary I got with happy tears at the joy on her grandmother's face (although I totally did manage to keep myself from crying!)!
I'm teary eyed too, what a wonderful story!ReplyDelete
Little steps, Cammie, little steps. We somehow got in our mind some of the events of the Gospels, the healings there, as being the only types of miracles. But I've gained wisdom over my many years, and have seen God's REAL miracles: they come in little steps, and sometimes we don't even notice them. But, as you know, GRANDMOTHERS notice everything!ReplyDelete
I thought this was an interesting article about people with special needs!ReplyDelete
God's graces are everywhere, and today He decided to bestow one on the little girl's family through your beautiful daughter Sadie. She (Sadie) is a special girl, and not just because you her mommy believe it so(because who doesn't see the wonderfulness of each of their children?). But over and above that, in her innocent faith, God works through Sadie. I pray He protects and guards her, as does St. Joseph, as He protected the Virgin Mary, so Sadie may do many wonderful works of mercy on His behalf. She's such an innocent instrument in His hands, and I am glad you were able to witness one such act of mercy, one she doesn't even know she performed. Like Mary, hold and ponder these works of light in your heart. What a wonderful Advent gift to you! Thanks for sharing it with us.ReplyDelete
