Okay I already made a fool of myself to several friends and family, so now I am going to make a fool of myself over you.
There’s plenty of people in this world who don’t believe in this and that’s okay. I respect that. I don’t demand you do, but this is what I believe and what settles in my heart as truth through what I’ve seen in my experiences.
This boy, he has more guardian angels than he knows what to do with.
It’s like when he was born, despite the struggles he’s had and will continue to have, there’s always somehow been the right person right there to cross his path at his precise moment of maximum need. The best doctor for him, the best therapists, the best teachers, the best friends, the absolute perfect for J-bear whatever it might be has always just happened. It always blows me away. I know in my life I have been extremely fortunate in those who have helped me along the way and taken the place of those who should have cared but did not… But what happens for my son? There aren’t even words.
What made me think of this was realizing that 4 Paws for Ability welcomed two litters of puppies recently. They would be of the right, likely age to be J’s dog should we finish fundraising this month. Now, the family labrador passed away this past March. As she died, I asked her to come back and look after my boy.
I think the guardian angels are having a field day both looking after him and making me cry like the great big ninny I am. I see her face in some of those little pups and it’s all over. The waterworks are on. If they have even a tenth of her big, loving heart they are going to be amazing for whoever they look after.
Let’s just hope they don’t have some of her other quirks. She was a stinker, but anyway…
People have come out of the woodwork to share their generosity with a little boy some of them barely know or don’t even know at all. They have let his story touch their hearts and been led to cross his path just when he needed them most. There are no words for how amazed I am by this nor are there words to adequately convey my gratitude for it. Yes, I have thank you cards, which will still go out despite how tiny they seem in contrast to the giving of so many.
Thank each and everyone who has brought us this far and thank you especially to those mischievous, loving, forever there guardian angels this little boy undoubtedly has.
