This year I'm especially grateful for my daughter having such a devoted friend, someone she can be herself with and that she can enjoy but also give love back. I have now heard at least on three different occasions, the girls walking together, and one of them looking at the other and saying "I love you."
Brady told me in the car the other day that he wished he could have a best friend. My prayer for now is that God would bring someone into Brady's life...whether it be a little boy or an adult...that Brady could attach himself to and feel equally as loved - and for the other person to GENUINELY enjoy being with Brady. I'm so thankful for the Awana's program because he has a reason to really really smile every week and he has been pursuing God's word on his own - and becoming pretty obsessed with it. Aspie kids generally always have an obsession with something, it makes my heart sing to hear my child say "can I watch a Bible dvd mom?" or "so Jesus loved us and died for us mom ...why on earth would He do that?"
So...no driving him to school today. We took him out the last day before fall break - we celebrated today with fun learning games and muffins and him getting his Xbox time and outdoor play. I'm thankful for my Tristan and I'm glad to have the little "nudge" in my heart go away. I felt like for three months I felt uneasy on a daily basis.
This season is my favorite - I love the thankful/giving season! Happy weekend everyone!
