You know those times when something happens and you actually can feel God smiling?
Today I had one of those moments.
Since the snow hadn't started yet I decided to take the kids out of the house before it got too nasty out there.
We went to Michael's so I could get a couple of things. When we arrived, Linz went off on her own to check out her favorite departments and Zach was hanging out with me as I wandered up and down the aisles.
As we were walking down the yarn aisle the music they were playing changed and the song "Kokomo" by the Beach Boys came on. Then I hear Zach say (to no one in particular) "Oh! My favorite song!". Ok.....my son.....who doesn't talk.....said.......WHAT?
After blinking a few times I said, "Zach, do you like this song?" He said, "Yes!" (Ok...WOW!)
Then I figured I'd push my luck and I said, "Do you know the name of this song?" and he said, "The Muppets".
I swear I could have almost done a back handspring!!!! (ok....about 20 years ago and 100 lbs. lighter....but STILL!)
Thank you Lord for giving Zach (and me) that amazing moment of clarity today. I could feel you smiling down on us and it felt SO GOOD!
