Yesterday Mrs. McC, Carls teacher brought him into my office to show him his SURPRISE. I am almost in tears as I type this, just like I was when he came in and I saw his reaction. He looked at that USED but nice bicycle and was SOOOOOO EXCITED. He kept saying, "My bike" over and over. He said "Take it home." We assured him that he could take it home. He twirled around and jumped and smiled. - tears - Not only that, he brought people all day long over to my office to show it off.
We are at that school to provide an education for our students, BUT WHAT A LESSON WE LEARNED from a special needs child. The selfishness we see, or are involved in ourselves is SHAMEFUL. How wonderful it would be if the little things we were blessed with; we would react to, in the same way this sweet kid reacted to his used bicycle in need of a seat cover.
Thanks to Carl who blessed me so greatly this week with a lesson taught.
