Those Who Are Different

I am currently taking a class in my program about teaching children with disabilities and I love it! It is my favorite class of the week and I look forward to going every time. The very first class ended with me in tears after we talked about the importance of these children and how close they are to our Heavenly Father. Having worked with students with disabilities before I know how special they are first hand. In high school I was part of the best buddies club and through those three years I learned so much about myself and how to treat other people. I have never seen such geniuine service or Christlike love that I saw in my friend Jaclyn. She truly was a little angel. My reading assignment in class this week was a talk given by Marin K. Jensen entitled "Those Who Are Different" , I love being at BYU and having conference talks assigned as reading. The talk is amazing and I suggest that everyone take a little time and read it. I am so excited to keep learning and working with these students who have disabilities. 

Just wanted to share that little thought :) I hope everyone has a fabulous day!
