I can’t believe that April is here already. This month has gone faster than I expected.
This weekend has been a busy one and I’m tired. Today I sat on my front deck, in the sun, listened to the silence and it was glorious.
I’ve enjoyed this month of gratitude. Being present and aware of what’s happening around me. Looking for the good even when things are tough. It’s been a good 31 days and I’m looking forward to continuing my gratitude practise but I probably won’t post daily about my gratitude.
Even though this month is up, I’ve really enjoyed posting. I used to post daily; back in my other life….when my big kids were little, and before the decade of trauma.
April is Autism Awareness Month. I recently saw something that referenced Autism Awareness, Acceptance and Appreciation.
I love the idea of growth and movement in our understanding of Autism.
There is definitely a need to bring awareness. It is so important that we accept diversity and the very things that make people special and unique. It’s important to not try and force people to conform to our understanding of typical and acceptable behaviour. But moving beyond awareness and acceptance, when you can begin to appreciate the beauty that individuality brings to our world; when you can see people’s strengths and not just focus on their challenges, that when we really start to “see” people. That’s an incredible thing.
So, I’m going to continue posting. I dunno if it will be everyday but I’ll figure something out.
I sure do appreciate you coming along for the ride. Don’t hesitate to comment or ask a question, if you have one. There are no stupid questions.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this past month of gratitude and will continue to enjoy April’s posting.
I’m so very thankful for you!
