I am touched when people take extra time with Nevin..... when they give him a little extra compassion, a little extra attention. When they make him feel valued and important.
Tonight we were planning on going to a band concert. It was going to happen at a local bar and we had heard that if we got there early and ordered food........ and kept the food on the table....... we'd be able to bring Nevin in and stay through the first set. He was SO excited...... a "Rock'n Roll" concert.
But, tonight we found out that rules had changed and NO one under 21 would be admitted. Nevin was disappointed...... but Jon (the lead singer of Midnight to Twelve) met us outside the bar as they were unloading and gave Nevin some extra special treatment!! He got to watch them unload their equipment, got a tour of their bus, got an autographed CD, pictures with the band and with Jon. Definitely a night to remember.
Jon is the son of a friend of mine (they live in CA)....... but doesn't really "know" Nevin....... yet he was WONDERFUL with him...... actually the whole band was great with him. It just warms my heart!!
Be sure and check out Nevin's blog for more pictures.
