Wearness Wednesday

April 4, 2018

#Goodmorning #today is Wearness #Wednesday so I’m wearing a #necktie that I made of #string and a #shoelace with knots in it to bring #awareness to #autism . In the last five years I have worked in #education and also now with #writing a monthly #column with @AutismParentingMagazine and I realize that the #simple things in the lives of #students , #parents and #teachers mean a lot when it comes to making #life better for all of us. A knot in a string creates #sensory #stimulation for many so just think what we all could do if we simply just #touch #lives.

Even on Easter sometimes you have to sit back and take a pic of yourself. Put this on my TAB (Thankful And Blessed).

There are no shortcuts in life and when you see one it won’t last forever. I drove by a street a few blocks from my old neighborhood and see a pond that used to be a trail that we would walk through to get home quicker. The message is that you can sink, swim or find another route to survive and thrive.
