extraordinary

I haven't shared a lot about Koleson on here. He is an outgoing little boy who loves his mama and his big sister. He uses sign and words to communicate. He is has recently begun enjoying playing with cars and trains. And balls. He is playful and a touch mischievious. His eyes are so blue that people comment on them just about every day. In addition, he receives early intervention services. He gets speech therapy and has recently begun occupational therapy. I work in this field and am familiar with the benefits that come with early intervention. I am so grateful for the advantages these therapists offer us. I also understand there's a certain process you have to go through when your child has any kind of special needs. I am in that process.

Last week we went to prayer service at our church. Koleson and I sat in the back with some toys. I was having a wonderful time watching my beautiful little boy play quietly.

We began to sing.
"We won't be satisfied with anything ordinary.
We won't be satisfied at all.
We won't be satisfied with anything ordinary.
We won't be satisfied at all.
Open up the sky, pour down like rain.
We don't want blessings, we want You.
Open up the sky, pour down like fire.
We don't want anything but You."

I stared at him as I sang. I realized that he may not be "ordinary". But, I wouldn't be satisfied with anyone else. That little boy brings unbridled joy. I don't want to live my life in such a way that I am always looking for the next blessing, always searching for more than what I have. I hope to live my life seeking Him and discovering the blessings as He sees fit to hand them out. And He does.
And, some of the time, they are extra-ordinary.
And this one is named Koleson.
