Do you ever have one of those moments where you are sooo inexplicidly proud of your kids, that it brings tears to your eyes??? Well, I had one of those moments yesterday when we went to the "ole' folks home" for their Primary Activity Day.
A long time ago in Primary they asked the kids who wanted to play the piano at the Ole' Folks Home. Cassidy and Lund were happy to comply and yesterday was THE day. I have been sooo impressed with Cassidy and Lund as they have been practicing continually lately. I don't even have to tell them 15 times and then threaten them within an inch of their life. They have had motivation lately because they had the performance yesterday and they have their Christmas recital coming up in two weeks. (By the way, you are all invited! Call me for details).
My heart wasn't just filled with joy because of their performances, which were AMAZING, but also because of the amount of love the kids showed towards the elderly folks that live there. I am one proud momma today and we made some friends that we are going back to visit soon.
Another wonderful moment came when Tim in our ward who has Down Syndrome, ran up to one of the ole' folks and gave him a bit hug. I think their sweet, innocent spirits were speaking a language they know so well and give so freely................love!!!!
