Yesterday, a cool thing happened.
I was in the car with Bobby, on a busy street, going to the store. I noticed a red SUV on the right of us. I noticed it because I love the color red. When the SUV got in front of us a little, I noticed an autism ribbon magnet on the back of her car.
I told Bobby that the lady probably had a child with autism. He wanted to know how I knew. I told him about her magnet. I said, "I wonder if she saw ours". I wondered out loud if I'd seen her before and where her child went to school. Just as I was thinking that, she got behind us a little. When she got up next to us, as she was driving by, she looked right at me and gave me the peace sign.
It's like we were 2 strangers with something in common that is deep in our hearts. I thought that was really cool of her. It's so profound how having a child with autism can bond you to another parent because you share and relate to what they are going through. That's how I feel about all of you. Thank you all for your blogs and for reading and commenting on mine. We definately all need each other.
