Becky thank you for all your posts, I love you/it/them! *g*

I watched a beautiful scene today. I had to take a class of Year 12 girls, and one was in a wheelchair. Her teacher aide didn't appear and this girl is also vision impaired, so she couldn't read the small print on the worksheet. Two other girls let her join them at their computer station, putting her between them, and they read the questions aloud, letting her have her say as they typed in the searches on the net. It really was great to see them include her. It was the way they did it, so willingly and with pleasure. I recognised one of them, she'd been at our school years ago, and had become a diabetic at the age of about six. Now, there she is, caring for another young woman who needed help so much. It was beautiful to see.

And every class, when I said 'who wants to lead us in prayer' (and yeah, I thought that was odd but it's what they do there) there was a volunteer. I was moved.

It's important to hang onto the wonder in the things that happen around us. There is so much beauty tucked in amongst the ugliness and rush and noise.

It was just so nice to see. I sometimes wish Christy had gone there. Then sometimes I'm glad she didn't... I have very mixed emotions about that.
