Sweet Baby girl… Today you will turn five. It seems like yesterday your mommy was calling to tell me she was going to be blessed with you! I was so excited, I prayed for you for what felt like forever…. I was making a blanket for you while I was praying, I was certain it would reach all the way around the whole world. It really fits just perfectly right around your little body. You Mia, taught me that I have the ability to be disciplined in my prayer. You taught me that God gives us the desires of our hearts. And you sweet girl were the desire of the heart of many. What a blessing it has been to be called your Auntie. I can not wait to see what this next year has in store for you. Kindergarten, VBS, AWANAS, so many amazing big girl things!
I have friend, she is amazing. She lift’s us up, she inspires us, and she has been teaching us how to be Fearless on her AWESOME blog The Fearless Experiment. But this last week she share on her Mom’s Blog Earth Monkey Mom’s , her heart was broken by going to the playground. You see she is a Mommy Warrior, and even Warrior’s get broken hearts. Let me tell you why, she took her little Warrior’s to the playground. Big deal, you say? It would be a humongous deal if you are a Mommy Warrior who teaches her little Warrior’s to be respectful and have compassion. But you then see children running from your Warrior because he screams at them about braking playground rules. My friend’s little Warrior’s are battling through every day with Autism. She is an amazing Mama, who has done every thing and more to protect and serve her troop. I am in awe and humbled by her. This trip to the playground sparked a plea from her to US… the community that she serves, talk to our kids about Autism.
So here in Texas… I went and talked to some of our kids…. and they are learning, and finding compassion, and maybe as long as we have little Warriors the kids in Texas will be the example to the generation’s fight for those who can’t always fight for themselves.
