| I'm thankful for all the things that didn't happen....|
like him getting the turkey and putting it on his head!
With his love of animals I could see this..LOL.Yikes!!!
I'm grateful that .....
- Nick could eat more than potatoes.
- My kid's didn't spend the day fighting.
- Nick is able to live at home.
- He's learned to control his aggression.
- I'm not worried ever second he might accidentally hurt someone.
- He can sit at the table with everyone else.
- He can sit at the table and chew with his mouth closed.
- He can manage all the loud sounds that come from putting lot's of people together and not have a melt down.
- My daughter doesn't let him ruin her day.
- Nick is following directions.
- Autism is no longer the elephant in the room everyone see's and is pretending to ignore.
- Every moment he's just another member of the family and not the member of the family with autism.
- Every moment I'm not worried about making him behave perfectly, so he'll blend in.
- After 13 years of living with Autism, I can gather with people and talk about something other than autism!
- Nick didn't walk by anyone's' plate and take their food (BTDT).
- People didn't stare at him... too much.
- No one feels the need to make excuses for him anymore.
I'm grateful he was happy, we are happy.
