“The past is an inheritance, a gift and a burden. It can‘t be shirked. You carry it everywhere. There‘s nothing for it but to get to know it.”

Great children‘s book about siblings of autistic children. They are mostly 1 page articles, however there‘s pictures of the page opposite the stories.

#SpringIntoReading Day 19: There are a total of 28 poems in this amazing collection, all perfectly matched with Hines‘ painstakingly-meticulous quilts that are lovingly handcrafted. In each full-spread page of the quilt/artwork, the reader is immersed in patches of colours, circles of hope, and whispers of connectedness, hope, deliverance, and what it is like to #forgive. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-80h

Understanding Sam and Asperger Syndrome | Clarabelle Van Niekerk, Liezl Venter
post image

I showed support for my previous students who have been diagnosed with autism, the parents I know who have children with autism, and those living with autism by reading “Understanding Sam” to Kindergarten this afternoon.

Sam is diagnosed with autism after his parents take him to a doctor following his abrupt independent departure to a fair late at night.

Remember: the person comes first.

Sam is a child with autism.

It does not define him.

CBee Thank you, from the parent of a child with autism. ♥️ 4mo

Today is the ninth anniversary of my big brother Jeff‘s beautiful soul leaving this world. I just wanted to share him with you guys. This wasn‘t too terribly long before he was diagnosed. Cancer just sucks.

MommyOfTwo So sorry. Cancer does suck, I‘ve known to many people who have died of cancer and way to early in their lives. 5mo

Bookwomble Lost my sister two years ago and my mum two days ago - yes, cancer definitely sucks! 5mo
NovelGirl82 @Bookwomble I‘m so sorry. Jeff and I lost our dad 3 weeks before Jeff passed from the same cancer that Jeff had (it‘s genetic), and my step-dad (who raised me) passed in 2005. It‘s terribly difficult. If you ever need to talk, I‘m around. Sending you any strength that you may need. 5mo
Bookwomble @NovelGirl82 Thank you, Tiffany. Such a lot of losses for you in such a short time ❤ I'm keeping busy with arrangements, so not properly feeling it yet. 5mo
CouronneDhiver Rest peacefully, Jeff. 🖤 Your people think of you often 🙏🏽 5mo
CoffeeK8 So sorry on this anniversary of your loss...cancer does suck for sure. (edited) 5mo
GypsyKat I‘m so sorry. 💜💜💜 5mo

Hanging out with my fat Lola in my library this morning before the rest of the house wakes up. The perfect way to begin a Saturday. Hope you all have a great day! #CatsofLitsy

Lcsmcat I love your library steps! They‘re almost as beautiful as the kitty on them! 😻 14mo
goodbyefrancie @Lcsmcat Thanks! My husband found them at an antique shop. I love them! Fat Lola is pretty awesome, too. She's 16 years old! 14mo

Existential angst for the grade-school set. The visuals in this book are stunning. It probably would have been better as a wordless picture book. The text is abstract philosophical ideas, which I don‘t have a problem with, but it is repetitive and offers no insight outside of the pictures.

Hate switching books in the middle but, after all the violence this weekend the world, and I, need more wisdom from the wonder Anne Lamott. #understanding #spirituality
