What makes you feel happy? I would really love to know even the simplest things my readers feel blessed about. It is definitely the little things that rock my boat. The sunshine of course, cuddles with my children and time with my husband. But another thing that really blesses me and makes me tick is random little bits of kindness. Are not these forks with a pearl handle just divine? They are a little bit of kindness I was given this week - together with another few of sets of wooden knitting needles to add to my collection.
Kindness really goes such a long way. The two ladies who gave me these little giftlings - probably don't know what it meant. So I encourage you all to remember how our kindness can just light up someone's day - even if it would not bright up yours.
This is my Grandma's old jug - just suits perfectly displaying my needles when I am not knitting. The 'Spring' book in the background is a Steiner-Waldorf inspired book with great seasonal activities to do with children - I love it!
The stall is looking wonderful - I have an appointment tomorrow morning with the local garage sales. I am so excited for what treasures I may find!
I must give an update on Master S and his maxilla spacer. My brave boy ventured for yet another Royal Children's Hospital visit with Dad yesterday. I have since heard that many children are actually fitted with these contraptions. However a child with Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome is at a disadvantage of their tongue not having full mobility post tongue reduction surgery. We were told prior to surgery that tongue mobility would not be affected - however this is something that has happened with our Master S. I cannot believe it has been 8 years since tongue reduction surgery.
Eating thus far is a bit of a problem as Master S is particularly sensitive to certain foods. This is a common characteristic of Autism Spectrum Disorders due to sensory processing issues. It is painful to watch your child have to deal with these challenges. We feel very blessed that these are the worst of our children's health challenges. If we had to chose - these would be on our list of special needs!
Here is a picture story of Master S and the first 18 months of our Beckwith-Wiedemann Journey...
