“Last week I received a call from a friend of mine. She told me that a teacher from our kids' school called her to tell her about an incident that happened in the cafeteria. Her daughter, Lacey, was walking to her table with her lunch tray when another student walked by and bumped into her knocking her pizza to the floor. The teacher said she witnessed one of her students take his pizza off his plate and give it to her, leaving him with only yogurt to eat for lunch. My friend was calling to tell me that student was my son, Noah.
I asked him about it when he got home, and he played it off like it was no big deal. The next day he was called into the counselor's office at school, and they were thanking him for what he did. Lacey just happens to have Down syndrome, but he told them, "She's just a person like everyone else, and I would have done it for anybody."
Proud Mom moment right there! I love that it was his natural reflex to help somebody. I love his humbleness. And I love that he doesn't care who it is...he doesn't put labels on people. Lots of lessons to be learned from that boy!
