Please consider Retweeting this! Thank you!
If you are a frequent visitor, reader, fan or follower of my blog, you may be aware that my dear son has Autism. Special needs is very near and dear to us. My husband and I live it, every day! I think that people with special needs are the sweetest people you will ever meet. They don’t know hate, only love.
When I was in elementary school, I always volunteered to help in the special needs classroom! I loved it. I helped with art projects and anything else the teacher wanted. I also loved being friends with them. I even went on field trips with them. They were always so nice! I truly loved being around them.
My husband and I were at a stop light and I look over to my right and I see a Dad showing his beautiful daughter how to pump gas. She looked to be about 12. I could tell he was explaining and showing her how to do it and he even had her hold the handle for a bit.
I even pointed out what I was witnessing to my husband.
We found this to be a heart warming scene because the daughter has Down Syndrome. She was so sweet looking. She looked so proud of herself for helping her Dad pump gas. I also admire the Dad for being so sweet towards his daughter.
After they were done pumping gas, he gave her a fist bump!
Every time we see things like that, we often wonder what it would be like to show our own son how to do things. We love showing him new things, however, he is still young and he has so much energy. Sometimes he just wants to help too much or try to run away. He thinks it’s funny and a game when he tries to run away from us. Every time we are out, we have to hold his hand for his safety.
