I walked into a playroom where an instructor was playing with a down syndrome seven-month-old baby boy while his mother watched, kneeling to the side smiling. She was so happy, spending time with her baby, seeing him work his motor skills. She waved at us smiling as we left. It was hard for me to keep my smile walking out the door.
We peeked into a room of blind children having lunch. I watched as one boy carefully took his time to stick his fork into his Tupperware full of watermelon pieces, and slowly bring it to his mouth, his aim slightly off. I'm already a slow eater, I can't imagine how long it would take me if I were blind.

May he be the ears and eyes for his children this year.
I'm neither blind nor deaf. At least physically. I thank God for that blessing. I pray for those who have to bear that cross every day. Lord, be with them. And guide all of us to see and hear your will as you would have it.
