Butterflies and Unicorns…. School let out this rainy afternoon just about the time face painting pro Melissa Morrisette showed up at the Toddler House with her pallet of colors. She and her husband spent their last afternoon at GLA by blessing the kids with their artistic talent. Faces close they leaned in to bring to life and perfect the details of lady bugs, cars, hearts, flowers, rainbows, butterflies, and unicorns with love and true compassion openly evident on their own faces for the individual little lives of these children. Jeanilia glowed with delight at her reflection in the mirror, her eyes sparkling with even more brightness than the glittery black and white kitty cat on her cheek. And Montesquieu ran up the stairs and through the yard when he thought no one was looking singing, “I’m flying… I’m flying… I’m flying” inspired by the unicorn on his cheek. Though the paint will wash away those moments of renewed realization that they are beautiful will remain etched in their self-worth and confidence only to grow.
