Oh my dear Lord, today I woke up and looked at my child’s face deep asleep, as he dreamed images of innocence… I saw
I was able to speak to him words that expressed my deepest love towards him as a mother, yet he could not reply back... I spoke
(and will speak for him as needed, since he is blessed with autism, today, he is 26)
My grateful heart leaped with joy as in his sleep he reached out to my hand, pulled it and took it close to his heart… I felt
As I walked out to the car, early, very early before dawn, a bird greeted me with his loving song… I heard
Later, the wonderful sun greeted me through the majestic backyard tree as the gentle breeze of a lazy autumn day gave me a nudge to start the daily chores and do my life's mission…
I have health to work, and I have a job to perform, a service to offer doing what I absolutely love
Someone gave me a true hug, and I felt their immense gratitude of sharing words of wisdom of a life lived with dignity and love… I shared with friends
I felt an overwhelming feeling of reminisce as with friends today, we shared how, now, much older and maybe not as skinny, wealthy, not wearing the high heels, hair and the clothes we once we were able to wear…
We are so much happier, are stronger, much more resilient, can appreciate life better, understand others more, have a strong belief in ourselves, are able to love without loosing our identity, be ourselves without shame, without boundaries, with great respect to life and what it has to offer… To see the best in others (and ourselves) regardless of our or their faults, forgive without wondering, have faith and hope without limits, enjoy a butterfly, a child, the moon, and the sky, those we love, those who do not love us back, yet we send them our best regardless… We thank those who make our lives a yogurt, because it is because of them that we are stronger and wiser… We don’t dwell on past mistakes, because, we now know better… We have great hopes for tomorrow, loved our past with all its lessons, and most of all enjoy our today since it is our eternal companion!
BLESSINGS TO ALL ON THANKSGIVING!
