Saying Yes

Hello Asperger’s,

Thank you for allowing me to walk with a girl who is so sweet, she absolutely cannot see bad in anyone. Even people who have been mean to her. Thank you for allowing me to bear witness to this beautiful heart of hers. A girl who after being excluded wonders what she can do to help the person who did it. Because obviously they are in so much pain.


Thank you for allowing me precious time with my boy, to know him more, and to ease my own heart, making up for time that wasn’t spent “on him” when he was tiny. Thank you for providing me more opportunities to be kind when he is scared. Patient when he takes a long time to get his words out, accepting and supportive when he tics.

Thank both of you, Asperger’s, PANDAS, for all the learning. All the heart opening. All the extra love you have ignited in me and so many others.

I appreciate you.

    You took the words right out of my mouth, Michelle. I was thinking the same things about cancer and dementia. These challenges can be so frustrating and yet they give us opportunities to rise and be the best of ourselves. If life were easy, what would be the point?
