This week while taking Isaac to school each morning I noticed that the moon was still visible in the morning sky, and it seemed that the moon was directly opposite the position of the sun. In between these vast bodies, was Isaac and myself as we were traveling down the interstate - a pretty cool perspective.
Perspective plays a large role in our lives as we puzzle our way through this journey with Apraxia and Autism. Quite often, Mama has to take perspective checks to understand the present situation, especially as lately so many of our challenges have been completely out of our hands.
This morning, knowing I need some new pictures for this blog post, I tried to have a quick pre-school photo shoot, but Isaac wasn't interested, so I gave up, and we traveled to school between the sun and the moon.
This picture was taken in the school parking lot. Isaac is watching a bus unload students. Mostly typical students, who don't have to spend lots and lots of time in therapy or have multitudes of professionals riffling through files and case studies - trying to figure you out. These students, get to walk into the school building by themselves, and they know exactly where to go, and exactly how to behave in the hallways, the class, the library, gym and playground. They don't have I.E.P meetings, or behavioral assessments. And most of all, they can all say what they want to say when they want to say it - Isaac can't.
It is so easy to sigh, and perhaps even cry, but that's only one perspective.
Let's move the angle of the camera, a wee tad, and oh my goodness, but our little guy is covered in a grace of radiance, with a halo - no less. It is the same time, same place, same child, but such a VASTLY different perspective. Ordinary into EXTRAORDINARY!!!
Just like our morning rides to school. Isaac and I are not just traveling down the interstate. We are traveling between the sun and the moon, and whether we can see it or not, but that radiance of grace in flowing over us. Sometimes, however, you just need to see it.
Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
