Thankful beyond words!

Our final gift for Teacher Appreciation Week


I want my blog to be a fun, creative and beautiful place. I need this little spot here in blog world. Sometimes it is a counter balance to a stress filled life. Our oldest son is on the Autistic Spectrum and often our days are long and trying. Our hearts and minds have been opened, stretched and blessed by our son. We have been challenged in what seems to be beyond our limits most days, but yet somehow (truly the grace of God and support from friends, family and our schools) despite all of our parenting inadequacies this child is confident and believes he has something to offer to all of us. He can finally see value in his disability. We could have never done this alone!
I put this all out there for you to in some way give words to the deep appreciation we feel for our son’s amazing and supportive teachers and school staff. Last year was unimaginable—difficult beyond words. This year because of a phenomenal special ed teacher, an awesome autism consultant (and her special para professional) and our son’s extremely capable and caring para professional— our son has bloomed.

    What a beautiful sentiment – he has good teachers; that’s true. He also has a wonderful mother who values the contribution that he makes to his community, too. He is a very lucky young man. We all have a gift to share
    We are lucky readers to get such a heartfelt post

    My daughter is also autistic and the challenges are sometimes overwhelming. This year she has been blessed to have the most amazing group of teachers and they have just brought something out in her that is a joy to watch. Nothing I say or do for these teachers could ever relate how much they truly mean to me. Your ideas are a start though. Thank you.
