Life can be hard, sometimes

Emily came home one day late last week and told me the sweetest story.
She has been down about Craig some at school and we are working through those sad moments one at a time. She said that she was sad outside in the bus line one afternoon sitting on the curb with her head laying down on her knees. Ben, one of her classmates, came up and squadding down in front of her and said
 "Life can be hard, sometimes"
Ben is a sweet little man with down syndrome. He is in her Kindergarten class. I would guess Ben knows how hard life can be but also knows how big of a blessing a little encouragement can be.
Emily told someone that story and they asked what she said back to Ben, she said it just made her smile.

Yep, I smiled too when she told me.
God works through the littlest people in the biggest ways.

It's the little ones that usual get it right! My heart truly breaks for your three beautiful daughters. All of you remain in our daily prayers.

Michelle, What a beautiful story. God has touched your family in so many ways. Emily didn't have to say anything to Ben, he knew that her smile said so many things including "Thank you". Sometimes I feel children know so much more than we realize.May Our Lord rest His hand on all of you Michelle.

Nothing like filling my eyes with tears first thing on a Monday morning. What a special moment for them both. You are never far from my thoughts and are always in my heart. MK

Michelle, your faith and honesty are such a blessing to those you don't even know. Many prayers for your family occur daily from people you will never meet. God's Love is present.
