We found the PERFECT shoes- velcro Spiderman with LIGHTS. The person who donated those shoes had no idea how valuable they would be! :) Pablo was ecstatic….especially about the lights. I told him to go show them off downstairs, so he stomped down the stairs and ran to anyone he could find. He figured out that if he kicks his feet in the air the lights will turn on….quite humorous to behold.
We did new clothes next, and that was equally as exciting. I never knew that new underwear could be THAT big of a deal. Wow. He kept pulling them up really high and popping the waistband. Lol…. We got him dressed in a new outfit, and he couldn’t stop rubbing his new shirt. He had his pile of new clothes bundled up against his chest, and he did NOT want to let them go. He raced downstairs immediately, and went to put them in his drawers. He wanted to throw away his old clothes, but I told him they were still ok to use. It was hilarious watching him put everything in its proper place.
The tias and teachers all made him feel so good…whistling, telling him he was handsome. The joy and pride was just oozing out of him, and it was so much fun. He definitely brightened everyone’s day today…especially mine. I love him so much.
Here are a few photos…. This is his special smile for the cameras...
Just this week I was talking to someone about my old job. I was telling her about my old clients...how much I miss them and love them....how when I was with them I knew that I was doing exactly what God created me to do...and the joy that comes from being in that moment. I miss it all so much. I feel like my time with Pablo today was just a special gift from God...to remind me that He knows my heart. Thank you for Pablo, Father!
