Over the years I have relaxed my hovering tendency. A week ago we were at some friends house that we had not seen in several years for a party. I do not advertise my child's disorder, but when he speaks it becomes apparent. Our friends 11 year old boy started teasing my child and mimicking his voice. I have to say it was eye opening because he had not been teased before. My child left the party and went and sat in the car. I did not witness the teasing. I got the story out of him on the way home. He was humiliated. I wanted to turn around and have him point out all the kids that were teasing him, but we were already far away.
He is the sweetest kindest person you could ever meet. I am so thankful for all the loving, kind hearted people in my life. These people accept us for who we truly are and love us for our shortcomings. This week was teacher appreciation at our school. I wrote Thank you notes to all of his teachers, principal, speech therapist and reading specialist. They make my child feel like a million bucks. They encourage him to do anything he sets his mind to. I personally believe that people need to be told that they are appreciated. A short note does not take very long to write, but means the world to the person receiving it. Write a short note to someone today telling them Thank you for their kindness. It will mean the world to them and to you too!!!
Let me know what you are thankful for...Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline
