A few weeks ago I told you of a little man 7 years old with JIA,I met him while with my neighbour picking up her children.
The little boy has a walking frame and asked why did I have a stick, he then said if I would go for a walk with him he could show me how to walk without being in pain ,
I met him this afternoon, and we had a little walk, only around 10mins, now get this..he said you shouldn't stick your bum out like that its not good for you back, oh bless his cotton socks...we had a really good chat, and he wants to meet again, his mum said he is in agony sometimes..but he likes to help people and it takes his mind off things.....he even offered to lend me his frame, and said daddy would make the legs longer for me...he is so funny and had me chuckling away...better hold mui bum in next time :o
I am putting him forward for child of the god he deserves it .
Thanks for reading xx

    It's often the case that children with disabilities are very sympathetic and more aware about other people, but your little man sounds like one in a million, Barbara. His parents must be very proud of him.

    Well that's told me, tucking my bum in right now :oops: . He sounds a darling little boy and I hope your nomination is successful. Do admit, I often look in shop windows to see what I look like and it does make me straighten up. :lol:

    Children surprise me sometimes, they just take it in their stride! And they make me feel like I'm moaning all the time!! And when I see them suffering in pain It breaks my heart and I end up sobbing like a baby. I just want to take their pain so they don't have to suffer.
    No child should have to suffer, they should be running around enjoying life, not having to live with disabilities.

    Hi Aunty Barara

    I think it would be a lovely thing to do to nominate him for a child of courage award.

    His Mum will bawl her eyes out :cry:

    Aunty Barbara (nice one, frog :wink: ) he is a treasure but I think he's also found a treasure. What a great pair!

    By the way, sticking your bum in is relatively easy when you are 7 years old and don't possess much of a bum. The larger the offending article, the harder it is to pull in (I have discovered :oops: ). Which is not to say that you, Barbara, have a .......oh dear....I think I'd better leave it at that :roll:
