Such a big heart

Today Kai was going through our wedding pictures. He came across a picture with Johnny, a family friend, in it. Johnny is in a wheelchair and has Muscular Dystrophy.

Kai "who is that?"

Me "that is Johnny"

Kai "can he talk?"

Me "yes he can talk"

Kai "I think I want to give him a kiss"

My heart melted as I heard that Kai wanted to kiss him because he saw that he has a disability or "owies". So very sweet!

That's so sweet!!

I had a similar experience with Joshua. The morning my mother-in-law had her hemmorhage, I woke Joshua up and he immediately asked for Lawrence. I told him "Daddy is sleeping because he was at the hospital all night. Grandma Gustafson is in the hospital with a big owie on her head." Joshua's response is one that will touch me forever. In his sweet, compassionate, sad voice he said "I wanna kiss Grandma's owie."
