So, I went to my goddaughter’s first communion today (Catholic religious ceremony if anyone doesn’t know) and it was a beautiful, absolutely wonderful small gathering of six families for the six students.
One girl was born with a defect and, as a result, is unable to speak along with a couple other things. She and my goddaughter were together for the entire ceremony and it brought tears to my eyes to see her helping her out and reacting so kindly to this child that I know many others would have rebuked.
I couldn’t have been more proud. Children, while wonderful, are, I find, brutally honest, both with positive and negative things. Often I see children act afraid of or mean to children like her and to see my goddaughter being so nice and friendly, my heart just swelled.
I love that little girl so darn much <3
