Last night Owen was requesting songs that he learned at church. He would come running to me, singing only a couple of the words, wanting me to find it with the voice-activated command, and running off with glee. It’s such a delight to see the world through Owen’s eyes. The pure joy from him changed my whole night. For over an hour he had me look up the songs, even though he had them open seconds before. His feet and arms are still such a mystery to him, but he attempts to do the motions he has seen at church with the songs. He didn’t want to give up his tablet last night for bath and bedtime, he wanted to keep playing the songs. He woke up this morning and after turning off “twinkle twinkle” in the hall he immediately found the songs from last night, only to have me search for them a few moments later. My boy was born to worship. He loves going to church and it helps with our routine. There is no greater victory than the victory in Jesus and my boy knows it. Life is not always simple, I’m stressed most of the time, but the one thing I always know is God has a plan. We walked to the bus stop this morning with a song in his heart and a smile in my soul. We waited for the bus, Owen asking for “twinkle twinkle” the tune he doesn’t want in the hall but wants at the bus stop. He wants me to sing it “one more time” as we wait. I asked him to show me one more time by pointing his finger. He held his whole hand up and shook it. That works for me. I’m thankful for his growth and seeing him change right before my eyes. Life can become very overwhelming and daunting but embrace the little things. Let life spark new found adventures and don’t hold back on your dreams. Share your smile with the world and watch what you get back in return. Smiles to all and donut daze!
