God made you special...

Every few months, the Special Needs ministry at church hosts a movie time where the kids can come and watch a movie, eat popcorn and be themselves - no being quiet or sitting still required. Just like all the functions orchestrated by this ministry, the girls just love it. They bring sleeping bags, pillows and stuffed animals and sack out - for a few minutes, then they move around some - and it is okay.

Today was movie day after church, so we brown bagged it and ate lunch at church and hung out until movie time. (Much less hectic than driving home and turning right around and coming back) The girls do this thing where they narrate what they are doing as part of some pretend game they play ("and then the girls were brushing their teeth" - said while they brush their teeth; "and then the girls were having healthy ice cream" - they really said this while eating ice cream the other day - "and the boys were..." - whatever boys do) And so they were having a conversation in this style about movie time and Special Needs...

Hannah: And then it was movie time for the girls
Kaylie: and they were in the special needs
Hannah: But they were still special
Kaylie: (drops character) I know! That is why it is called Special Needs.

How awesome is that?!?!?!

Thought for the day (courtesy of my dear friend Carole who pulled me aside this morning to remind me of exactly this (courtesy of God who put it on her heart to share it with me)): God made you special and He loves you very much.
