Bamboo and the Autism Spectrum?

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.
