i had the pleasure of going to michael's birthday party. i was greeted with many hugs from his little sister and other children at our school. and then i saw michael. and his face lit up and looked a bit surprised. he grabbed me by the hand and led me to his other guest down stairs. there were little boys running around jumping all over the room and funiture. it was chaos. but little michael just smiled and joined in.

he was having a high school musical party. during the first 2 minutes of the movie the children sat quietly, and then, like it was rehersed, they all jumped up at once and began dancing.

it was great. michael's mom would come down stairs every once in a while and just smile. i realized that she didn't care if the children were being crazy, she was just happy that michael was happy and enjoying the company of his friends. michael has been extremly blessed by children who accept him and love him just the way his is.

joy. you really can just see it all over his face. out of all the parties i have been to in my life, this is one i will always remember. he just makes my heart burst with joy.
