I get that not everyone sees autism as a blessing.
I don’t agree necessarily but I get it and I believe everyone feels what they feel based on their own experience. For me, I can only speak for our journey. I do believe autism has been a blessing and a gift.
What concerns me most is that if you go about your journey, seeing autism as a negative and not a blessing, you not only lessen the grace, value and blessing of the autistic individual but, while you are bundled up tight in your blanket of pity, deep inside that fog of woe-is-me, you might just miss the good stuff.
I think we can agree…the sparkles don’t always announce themselves in neon.
Sometimes they quietly tip toe in and hope someone is looking on the bright side.
If you expect and see the worst, I’m pretty darn sure you’ll find it..BUT…if you look on the bright side you just might find the sparkles will surprise you.
Which side are you looking on?
Sparkle On, my friends.
