Hello Gracing Spaces,
 
The mother and child were elated to receive the bed, the bed linens, picture and the bike.  When the mother saw the items, she put her hands over her mouth and gasped, she was so excited. The mother had the son to cover his eyes, so that  when he opened them she could give him the bike; when the son opened his eyes he was speechless.  He immediately began recruiting friends to teach him how to ride the bike. The mother shared with me, “my son will now have a birthday gift”, his birthday is tomorrow, May 31st. The child loved the picture, Lions seems to be one of his favorite animals. Both mother and child rolled around on the floor in the mattress cover, they were so happy. They happily removed the old mattress that the child was sleeping on and placed the bed in  that space. It very touching too see how the gifts you gave them lifted their spirits.  I witnessed so much joy on Saturday, it was  like Christmas in May.  The child has an admiration for Teachers , so he affectionately referred to  Gracing Spacing as Teachers. He told me to thank the Teachers for the gifts.
 
Love, Peace and Blessings,
Marilyn
