Yesterday I got to see one of the most moving moments of my existence. A beautiful, bright-eyed first-grade girl who uses a walker due to developmental delay was playing kickball with her class and it was her turn to kick. It was so wonderful to see her excitement as the ball neared her foot. She gave a gentle kick, supported by a helper, and began to slowly move towards first base. The thickness of joy grew in the room with every step she took. The game was on a delightful pause as the gym teacher clapped and all the students cheered and even began chanting her name. I will never forget the look on her face, every inch of it covered with bliss, pride, and acceptance. One of those little glimpses of heaven, to be perfectly cliche. I know it touched God’s heart to see the dignity and grace of this class and his little daughter in this moment.
Now that I got all Chicken Soup for the Soul on ya… have an awesome Wednesday, friends! And don’t forget to enter to win a dress of your choice from eShakti!
