What He Would Say

On Friday night, we went to the mall to return some shoes and get a few things.  While eating at the food court, we had our first experience with kids making fun of Abby.  A few boys were laughing and pointing at their throats, making faces.  They were silly middle school boys and I was the only one who noticed it, so it wasn't a big deal and I didn't say anything at the time.  I did mention it when we were in the car on the way home, though.  Here's the rest of the conversation.

Caleb:  Ohhhhh, I wish I had seen them!

Me (a little afraid of what he might have done): Oh yeah?  Why?

Caleb:  Well, I would have marched right up to them and very calmly said, 'Don't you know you're looking at a miracle?!'

Ahhh, I love that kid!  I'm so proud of the way he loves his sister.  I don't doubt that he will say that statement to more than a few kids.  My boy, changing the world...one punk kid at a time!

I have gone through that many times and still get weird looks today. It just makes me stronger. Caleb is a good big brother too! (:

Looks like when God wants to change the world, he sends 2 children. What a wonderful big brother Caleb is!

Hi....
I have been reading your blog for the past week or so. I like it!! ;)
This blog post touched my heartstrings!! Truly. I have learning disabilities. I've been made fun of by so many mean kids that today I never point out someone's differences, never call them names, and never, ever, ever leave anybody out....
Experience can have both negative effects, plus positive effects on a person's life. I also remember nearly every kid who made fun of me.... And I'm 28.
