On the way home from Charleston, we stopped for some lunch. Remember, he was attached to the EEG. It looks quite intimidating, as he has wires coming out from under his head wrap and attached to a little pack that he has strapped on. Of course, in the restaurant it got noticed. Not that anyone was overt but you knew they were noticing and no one was more aware of that than DS2. By the time our food arrived I could tell his mood had become very reflective and serious. He looked over at me with such seriousness in his beautiful green eyes and told me, "You know how when we see someone who is different, or we talk about someone who is different? Well, it changes a whole lot when you are the one who is different." We went on to talk about how people who are dealing with illnesses, or just any physical differences must feel. His heart opened in a way that I don't think I could have ever imagined just by his small experience of being "different." He has always been a compasionate soul, but I could tell that his view into what others who are different must feel, was heart stretching. He learned a lesson that no words I could have shared could ever have taught. He saw that no matter the differences we truly are all God's creations. My heart just melted as I listened to my 10 year old grow and mature before my very eyes. He poured out his heart concern and love for others, and I don't think I have ever been so touched and proud of him.
Who knew that an EEG could teach so much?
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for
righteousness, for they shall be filled.
