Significant Achievement / Pequeños Grandes Logros!

Do you remember a time when you had to speak in public? Were you nervous, hoping that nothing went wrong? Did anything ever happen out of your control? This past Saturday, Ricardo, one our youngest in La Casa, was on stage at school. He had practiced his song, “This Little Light of Mine”, forIMG_6582 weeks. He sang to his “tia”; he sang to anyone who would listen, over and over and over. When the day finally came and he and his classmates were standing in front of the audience ready to sing in English, everyone with smiles from ear to ear, the flashlight he was holding would not turn on. As tears filled his eyes, he left the stage; but Elena, his house mom, quickly ran to whisper in his ear “You IMG_6573can do it!” He was able to regain composure and sing with all his heart. He was awesome! Nothing can compare to the big smile across his face after having been able to complete his song and hear the cheers from the crowd. We are proud of you Ricardo for not only singing in English, but more importantly for overcoming a difficult moment. This may be a small accomplishment for many, but it was a huge one for Ricardo!

Pequeños grandes logros

Recuerdas alguna ocasión en la que que tuviste que hablar en público? Recuerdas el nerviosismo de IMG_6599esperar que todo saliera como lo esperabas sin ningún inconveniente? Alguna vez se salió algo de control? El sábado pasado Ricardo, uno de los pequeños de La Casa, tuvo una presentación en la escuela. Practicó su canción “This Little Light of Mine “durante semanas. La repetía una y otra vez en compañía de la “tía” quien pacientemente lo escuchaba una y otra vez. Finalmente llegó el día y él junto con sus compañeritos estaban listos frente a todos para cantar, en ingles!! Todos esperaban con una gran sonrisa, de repente la lámpara que tenía en su mano, parte del acto, no encendió. Sus ojitos se llenaron de lágrimas y salió del escenario pero Elena, mamá de la Casa de los Chicos corrió a animarlo y decirle al oído “tu puedes IMG_6582hacerlo”, Ricardo retomó el ánimo y cantó con todo su corazón. Estuvo grandioso! nada se compara con ver esa sonrisa dibujada en su carita de satisfacción después de haber cantado y recibir los aplausos del público. Estamos orgullosos de tu valor Ricardo no solo mostraste que cantas hermoso en inglés, tienes el valor de sobreponerte a un momento difícil. Lo que para algunos pueda parecer un pequeño paso, para Ricardo fue un logro importante!

  1. Oh Ricardo you were awesome!! So proud of you and I shared this with all the ladies I work with too. We were very pleased at how well you sang the song in English. This is one of my granddaughter’s favorite songs to sing and to have me sing to her at night! We are still smiling thinking of you singing this song and I am so glad you stayed on the stage to participate. Thank you Elena for being there and encouraging our little one so he would stay out there and sing his heart out for others to enjoy. God bless all of you!!
