You may have noticed that my blog has taken on a new look. In searching for a header, I came across a symbol of the greatness that exists in every individual on the autism spectrum. It’s the Bamboo Tree!
I know of a little boy on the autism spectrum. A few years ago, he chose a bamboo plant and named it Champion. Years later, I saw a picture of that plant, and it has thrived. It’s grown beyond recognition! And that’s what I think about when I think about every reader of this blog. Each one of you is a beautiful work of art, knit together by your Creator. You have unique gifts, temperaments, personalities. Each one of you has a different way of thinking about the world.
You may get discouraged from time to time, feeling that all your efforts and struggles don’t make a difference. Take the metaphor of the Chinese Bamboo Tree with you. I found this very inspirational video that conveys my desires for you in a way that I could never write about.
I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.
