This week the Kindergarteners in Toot's class went on a field trip across the street to a care and rehabilitation center.
They walked through the halls and sang Christmas carols.
we wish you a merry christmas
I went along to watch but didn't get to see Toots sing one carol.
I got to see something even better, if that's possible.
Little Bear and I ended up at the end of the pack.
He wanted to walk.
And then he noticed all the people in wheelchairs coming out of their rooms.
He turned toward them each, made eye contact, smiled and then reached out.
This sweet lady was hot on our heels in that chair, moving herself forward as fast as she could with her feet.
Her hands were no longer usable.
But, Little Bear reached out and touched her hands.
Then, he walked down the hall giving high fives and stopping to visit with each one.
It was a lovely, pure thing.
It was a gift to watch my child bring joy.
