I don’t believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be…Ken Venturi. In life we’re often encourage to believe in ourselves. However, I believe we need more. In truth, our believing in ourselves should be built on a solid foundation of faith. I believe it’s faith in our Creator that provide us with a humble/reasonable confidence that whatever strength or power we’re lacking our Creator will help us according to his will to be successful or happy. I am holding fast believing M has so many possibilities. These few months M has progressed to the point of graduating kindergarten. I believe faith, patience, persistence and a wonderful support team helped. I believe with continued encouragement he will not let fear or insecurity stop him from always trying his best and showing kindness to others. Also I want him to believe despite his uniqueness rocking autism, he is worthy of love. Yes, I want M to believe in positive thinking so that when life throws him a curve ball he will be resilient. Honestly, I believe like every parent that our children no matter their ability need nurturing in becoming amazing human beings. Last night M took my hands and said “read story story…please”. True reading a story every night is a part of M routine, however this was the first time he said those words to me. M is making three to four word sentences now! That moment was a culmination of years of believing that love, patience, persistence and faith would prevail. I am so proud of M accomplishments each day. M is teaching me to believe in the impossible because all things are possible by means of our Creator!
