On Seeing

My wife has been doing some long term substitute teaching as a music teacher in an elementary school. In one of her classes she has a darling little seven year old who is on the autistic spectrum. But that’s not all. She’s also totally blind. She has a one-on-one para with her all the time.

Yesterday this little one and her para came into one of my wife’s classes. And the para said, “Go ahead, honey, tell the teacher what you want to tell her.”

And the little girl said, “You’re pretty.”

    …and Kathy became a puddle…. Children “see” with senses other sight! Give Kathy a hug for me!
