Blessings (update)

So, I blogged about those wonderful kids I teach a few days ago, and the love, acceptance, and guidance they've shown to one of our kids who have special needs (Asperger's Syndrome). The birthday party invitations that Ben handed out remained in high demand all week long. Ben began just giving verbal invites to anyone and everyone who asked :)

Today was the party. 30-35 of his classmates showed up. He received tons of gifts and tons of cash and gift cards.

If you're a mom, you know that 10-12 is a fantastic showing for birthday guests. It just goes to show you that a little education and understanding of our differences goes a long way. Ben does not realize how significant today was, but his family does. Today he felt like one of the kids. Accepted. Not different.

Help our kids to accept one another. Teach your kids about the others out there.


Lesson: taught

Happy Birthday, Ben!
