" I THINK I WILL......yes, sir'rey"


I think I'm going to do this, most likely I will......volunteer to be a hugger at the Special Olympics, huggers stop these precious people from running, or less they'll just keep running around the track, they don't realize that they have ran their share, as many of you know I have a Goddaughter that has downs syndrome, and she is the most precious thing in my life, next to my children! I witnessed her birth, and non of us knew Mom was carrying something already so special, Mom didn't know she was pregnant with her until she was 7 months along, kept having periods, wasn't sick with morning sickness, so Danielle didn't get proper prenatal care while in the womb. Doing Special Olympics has been on my heart for a very long time, and I know it's there for a reason, so I have to be obedient and do his will! Johnathon has a friend who's brother has downs syndrome and I just love talking to this young man, he goes to high school with Johnanthon, and he told me the other night, while he kind of looks at me from the side of eye's, like so many of them do, with a serious kind of look on his pudgy face with his cute little ears showing, in a semi low tone voice "Uh.........John's mom" "Yes, sweet heart" I smiled back"Uh.....your a nice mom, with uh.....a nice John" that did it....I melted. So, tomorrow I am on a mission to find who I need to contact, we have a school in a nearby town that works with these angels, and I'm calling there and finding out the skinny, then I'll let you all know, I cant wait, my heart is jumping, just thinking about it, before too long my Danielle will doing this very same thing, did I tell you I picked her middle name? It's "Hope" cause she will bring Hope to all who ever gets to meet her, if you would like to see my Danielle Hope, just scroll down and you'll see her with Amanda, she's dressed as a little bumble bee, it's a Halloween costume, I need to go and get some recent ones to post, soon!

What a wonderful idea! When Kristin was in high school she helped facilitate the PALS program and one year she invited me to come to their school's "special olympics" and I did and I instantly fell in love with so many kids. You'll have a great time and it's something you'll keep with you forever, you'll be the best hugger out there!

p.s. Day 5 - I'm still squishimg and mushing!
