I think every day and sometimes more on some days than others - that I will just succumb to the intricacies that autism presents - the challenges - road blocks - detours and dead ends. It is only with the utmost strength and pure determination that we move this boulder forward, and yet we do it.
Like a little mustard seed we have strength and faith.
We have to block out the distractions - avoid the pitfalls of despair - and silence naysayers - and move as best we can with a backwards glance over our shoulders at where we have been-- knowing full well that sometimes we will "visit backwards" before going forward.
Anyone living with someone with a lifelong cognitive disability or physical disability knows that path well.
We prepare to go forward with the same grit and determination that we face every challenge, tentatively but with courage and hope.
We are happy to share some new flowers and hope that they brighten the day! Spring is coming!
