We have the most adorable girl in our ward. Her name is Shelley and she is a star! She has been inviting us to her softball games all season. Unfortunately, she would invite us after the game already happened. :0) Well, on Thursday night, she invited us to come and see her in a patriotic play she was in. She was going to be Pocahontas.
I was so impressed by the staff and the way they cared for the kids and adults with special needs. We were seated behind many of the other kids that came to cheer them on in their wheelchairs. It was a beautiful feeling. There was so much love in that room. I know we were seated amongst, and watching, angels on earth!
At the end, they sang 2 patriotic songs. One (which I haven't heard before) was about 9-11. The boy on the left was singing with tears streaming down his face. I couldn't help but cry. Following that song, they had all military stand and they honored them by singing, "I'm Proud to be and American". The man on the right in this photo had an amazing voice and, once again, the tears started flowing. I was so proud of Shelley and all of her friends. They truly touched me, and my kids. I'm so glad we were invited.
Next stop for Shelley...the Special Olympics!
I sure hope we can go cheer her on!!!
