I was sitting outside minding my own business, but our autistic son came out four or five times to update on the game show he was watching. Not the I needed updating, but apparently it’s important to him that I know. Anyway, he got his words scrambled up trying to explain to me who won the showcase. Struggling with his words he got frustrated and had a bit of a tantrum. I told him it really didn’t matter and to calm down, but I probably should have just kept my mouth shut.
Us humans are such imperfect creatures. We know how to harness the power of the sun and grow whatever food we want from the ground. Yet we often slip up and say stupid things to each other not realizing what we said till it’s too late. And I should be well aware of that fact, especially with special needs individuals in the house. But hey, we slip and we fall. And the best any of us can do is pick ourselves up and ask forgiveness when we screw up .By the way, my son and I are back on good terms. He just informed me that we have a football game on Friday and that it's homecoming for his high school alma mater.
