Wow...this is big...sorry!

I just had to share this picture and story about my cousin's little girl Raela.
She has Down's Syndrome and is doing really well in school now. She was 5 in March. At school they talked about parts of the body and how they work. She had been going around for awhile saying how her "arms reach" or how her "feet stomp."
She lives with her Grandparents and her Popaw picks her up from school each day. One day last week she and Popaw went by Walmart on their way home from school. Like many Down's kids she's a bit chunky so my uncle told her she would need to walk beside the cart. She liked that idea alot and helped get items they needed. At one point my uncle was reading a label and not watching Raela, at the same time he turned to look her way she reached over to a lady that was bent over and polietly slapped the lady on her bottom. In a great big voice she said "Bottom's get spanked!" When Raela noticed the surpised look on the lady's face, she pointed to my uncle and said "Popaw did it!" My poor uncle just closed his eyes.
He apologized to the lady and heaved Raela into the cart. Heavy or not she has to ride now.

My friend's little sister, Vivian, also has Down's Syndrome. I love her! She is so sweet! loveheart

This lady in the congregation used to sing to Vivian, when she was smaller, a certain lullaby that required you to make certain gestures that went with the words of the song. Well, years pass and Vivian never forgets! When service is over and everyone is walking around greeting each other and Vivian comes to greet the lady, she always starts singing the song and doing the movements. It is so cute! lol

Keep Raela in your prayers this week. She will be going to Arkansas Childrens hospital for something as simple as getting fillings for her teeth. She goes here for all her appointments because she has a heart condition they have to monitor. Thanks. (This is a photo I took of her in June!) When I saw this shot I couldn't help but think: THIS is what God looks like.

pray Raela will have my prayers.....My oldest, BJ always has to take antibiotics before any dental work because he was born with a hole in his heart (which has closed up) but to be safe, he takes them before any and all dental procedures.....

Well, it all got postponed til this week. SO, yes please keep her in mind. Also, she will be starting public school this year also. She is excited, and really loves school. She has her naughty moments, she had to take her shoes off for a few days as she came to school last year because she threw them at the teacher, but after that little punishment she learned her lesson. HA! Honestly, she is too smart for her own good!
I'm sure I will have more Raela moments coming soon....I get to see her when we take Nathan to college next weekend. SO if I'm lucky I might have another picture to share.

I'll keep Raela in my prayers. I missed your last message, and I'm sorry for it. Blue Raela looks so happy laughing this way! Yes...If God could smile, His smile must be similar to Raela's one.
