Today my husband and I took our autistic daughter to get her state I.D. She was quite excited and was wearing her favorite skirt. We even sat together and meditated which is something that we don’t do very much any more. Teenagers and such.
She even made the people waiting in line at the DPS office smile. She
was just ‘giggly’. When she is in a good mood, her energy seems to be
infectious. Unfortunately, we don’t seem to see enough of that. Her
moods due to her autism, is like the old children’s poem, the girl with
the curl. “When she is good, she is very very good and when she is bad
she is horrid.”
But today was a good day. Thus is the life of a family with an autistic adult child.

Witchy Rambles, talked today of seeking the spiritual in one’s life
amidst the mundane. There are quite a few that allow the mundane fill
their lives and then they wonder why they fill empty and unfulfilled.
I don’t have that problem. I feel the spiritual will overcome all and
my life will succeed as well as flourish. It is out of my hands and
that is all right by me.
Walk in Beauty.
