|Boo outside, September 2012|
It's been a while since I posted photos of Boo. He hasn't been cooperative. In fact, he has been adamant about not having his picture taken. Yesterday I managed to coerce Boo into spending some time outside. Once he and Boudreaux settled down on the patio, he really had a good time. I read part of Medjudgorje: The Mission by Wayne Weible. Boo enjoyed watching Boudreaux play in the grass less than six feet away from him. When a loud car drove by, Boudreaux gave up all pretext of being a big brave tiger and ran to Boo, jumped in his lap and refused to get down until I tried to take his picture. Then he jumped down and went to the door to go inside.
Boo's joy is contagious. Many, many times I've been tired or frustrated or discouraged or all three and Boo's attitude changes all that. He finds joy in the small, immediate, daily things---homemade yogurt or beingets, Boudreaux's antics, a passage in a poem or book, the warmth of a sunny day. Soon I find myself sharing his joy. What a gift! With all the disabilities Boo has, his most wonderful asset is his attitude.
