Please be kind, stranger

Last evening a ball rolled down to the very end of our backyard and I went down there to retrieve it and came face to face with our neighbor ( of 5 years but we have never met as our backyards are big and back to back to each other )

I said hi and introduced myself

She said " I see your son and you out here a lot.. he is soo adorable"

Me : Thank you .. we think he is so cute to

She : you spend a lot of time teaching your son don't you

Me : He has Autism so I try to play with him as much as I can

She: Autism ? Really? I never would have guessed .. well keep doing what you are doing .. he seems to be doing so well

Such are the simple acts of kindness that can fill up the heart of us moms

Or an email from a friend that we spend the weekend with

"I really miss R's presence in the house. He brought so much love! I can't believe that you guys were over only for a weekend."

How nice! I love those kind comments. I think of them as verbal hugs, you know?

Keep up the great work with your boy. :)
