Don’t Know What To Say

Simple enough task

Wednesday afternoon

Attend church service with my granddaughter, Osa

Diagnosed with Downs Syndrome, 10 years old now

Two pews behind allowed me to pray and watch

A young 8 year old to her left another to her right

Who I now call Angel

Osa became tired, eyes closed

Angel gently nudged her

Eyes opening

Osa turned to watch

Angel fold her hands

As my granddaughter followed suit

What had transpired was so incomprehensible

One child so confident in her faith as to share it

The other child so at peace in her class

As to follow the gift of acceptance

Immaculata Classical Academy Thank you
