This morning I joined my kids at Mass since they go every Thursday with their class. Father Deasy, an amazing Irish priest, treats Thursday mass with kids as an opportunity to have conversations about the bible, and even for me, it is much more entertaining than the formal Sunday Mass.
So, today he was talking about how lions and lambs will one day live and peace and asked the kids what that meant. After a few other children answered, a beautiful 2nd grader, Hollie, who has a brother with multiple diagnoses, including T21 piped up:
"We are supposed to love one another and accept each other regardless of our differences."
That did it... Water Works on. Hollie, you made my day so much more amazing. Siblings will make the world a better place. Thank you Hollie and Zach, for taking this journey with Jonah, Maren and Archie.
I love you.
