I heard something utterly delightful this afternoon that truly blessed me! While I was clearing the table of all the school books,computers, markers and clutter leftover from the school day, to get ready for my child to start setting the table, I hear the most beautiful music. It was my sweet little 5 year old singing "Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun please shine down on me" as he sweetly sauntered around the house. Oh, how that warmed my heart!
To some, this may not be a big deal, but if you knew where this boy was a year and four months ago (not talking, not able to communicate, had severe meltdowns, seizure episodes, just to name a few) you would be amazed and understand my delight at hearing him sing freely as he played.
When he saw how delighted I was, he kept singing it and laughing and we had a good old time singing about Mr. Sun. It was so fun to be enjoying our silly time together and making memories. Oh, how different that life can look when we stop and find joy in something, right where we are in our life.
