granny just knows.
this morning on way to school these are the things he was sharing with me..."when I go outside, I listen to the wind. I listen to the sun. I listen to the trees. They say God is in the air. and so are ghostly foxes and those clouds up there? The big ones? They aren't only clouds. They are everything." #cedarwisdom
after a few heart achy years of cedar wanting to be in school but not feeling a sense of (be)longing, we finally found a school hOMe where he is surrounded by kindred spirits and feels safe and held for all that he is. last night was the first gathering we were able to attend and while he typically would be hiding under a table or want to leave because of sensory overwhelm, he actually stood up on stage in front of 40 classmates & parents to talk about the Titanic. if he is allowed wide open gentle spaces to work through his discomfort, then people get to see the deeper layers of his soul. isn't that true for all of us.
