I love how Silas so easily entertains himself. When he gets in the zone he will tinker and play for hours by himself.
Javier isn't so much a kid as a young man but he still makes me smile. I think he makes every one who knows him smile. Why? Because this young man is the friendliest most cheerful boy I know. You can't walk by him with out a big smile( even though its difficult for him) and a good solid greeting. I don't know that if I were in his shoes, watching my own body waste away from Muscular Dystrophy, I would be able to pull myself out of self pity long enough to greet anyone much less do it with a huge smile.
And these two? They are so full of life and mischief that they can't help but make me smile. Last Sunday Carlos (red jacket) and I spent almost a full hour playing with a lady bug and an empty M&M package. Arnoldo has a lot of issues and a past full of things that no child should have to experience but he still has the resiliency to reclaim his childhood. That makes me smile.
