Micah Heath Garner
I am so grateful for my sweet Micah. Honestly, I must have done something really right to have been the lucky one chosen to be his mother. He is sweet, kind, a good helper around the house, gentle and loving with Abby, and just an overall good kid. He loves to play and considers everyone his friend. He looks forward to preschool and speech everyday because he considers his teachers and fellow students as friends. He is always drawing a picture and telling me he wants to give it to his teacher. Almost every time I pick him up, he is standing next to someone and has invited that person over to our house. The other day, he was standing next to one of the girls in his class. When I got to the door to get him, he said, "Mom, can she come over?" I said,"Who?" He then goes over to the little girl and says, "Do you want to come to my house and play Star Wars?" She smiled and said, "Yeah!" With a huge smile on his face, he turns to me and said, "She said 'yes'! She likes Star Wars too!"
Being friendly is only one of the qualities I admire in Micah. He also understands how to treat Abby. He knows that she is smaller than him, so he understands about being gentle, but he also really knows her, protects her, and looks out for her. Today, she was crying and I kept offering her things like milk, crackers, toys, hugs, kisses, etc. But, nothing seemed to work. Micah walked over to her, hugged her and said, "She just wants to play mom. Sit down. Let's play." It worked too. That's exactly what Abby wanted.
Thank you Micah, for being my example.
