Ever have someone say something to you that just blew you away with how sweet it was? Well, I am blessed to work with some of the sweetest kids, that say some of the sweetest things (sometimes). But the other day, a little girl said something that was so touching, I had to share. You may not have known, but I pretty much lost my voice for a week because, well, I have to raise my voice a lot. Imagine trying to raise your voice, with no voice. Oh man it would squeak to the high heavens when I tried to give any important directions. The kids for pretty used to my squeaky voice, but one day I a conversation with that little girl went a little something like this.
I said, "I wish my voice would come back soon," she said, "that's okay you're just sick!" I continued on saying, "But what if my voice never gets better and I sound like this for the rest of my life?" She said, "That's okay if your voice stays like that forever, because you still the same Miss Amy that I know and love."
I melted. I was so blown away by what she said and how something filled with so much love could come out of a six year old's mouth. I was amazed at how a less than four foot girl had such a big heart, and could build up confidence in a person so much older than herself. Kids do say the darnedest things, but this time it was the sweetest thing. So thank you, little girl, for making my day that day and making my realize there are worse things in life than a squeaky voice.
