Something I've recently realized

So a few weeks back I posted part of my nightly prayers. Part of which includes the idea of wanting my children to grow deep roots so that they bend instead of breaking at what live throws them.

I recently realized. Autism is Ike's path of growing roots. So instead continuing to complain at the Universe for choosing my child to suffer this particular difficulty, I'm recognizing whats going on. This is the path Ike must walk. Its kinda bumpy, with some wild curves. And without open eyes and some help, it can be a treacherous one.

It hurts. Its hard to watch and damn hard to navigate. But, there's lots of room for all of us to grow roots.
