Everything I really needed to know I learned in . . .

Monday, Mary Esther was secretly dreading an opportunity to talk to a group of 300 squirming, inattentive kindergartners about wheelchairs. When she got there, they walked  quietly, single file, into the hall, sat down and folded their hands in their laps!  They sat very attentively as she talked, they were with her all the way. God gave her just the right words at the right time. She was especially moved when, after asking “so with all these people needing wheelchairs, what should we do?`, a four year old boy jumped up. “I have an idea,” he said, and it was clearly a brand new one. “We could send them our wheelchairs!” The look on his face in that inspired moment was priceless.
