HumaneEducation.org. This is a site that speaks to my heart. I wonder how I will incorporate these beautiful life lesson plans into our days. Between speech, reading tutor, time for physical activities that build strength like gymanstics, swimming, vision therapy, and our regular homeschool activities and outings, and on going search for a social world that fits, this is most important. The spirit of the child, especially a child with challenges must stay intact and vibrant for him to be able to seek his own path, and be joyful in the face of some challenges and prejudices that may persist throughout his life. How do we balance the lessons to live with the lessons of life and what it is to be human when we are still discovering ourselves? How can we teach or let them teach us when we are struggling to accept, believe fiercely, love unconditionally, teach what is needed, be patient beyond our ability, and remain above the darkness and moving toward a future that though unknown for everyone feels especially uncertain? Maybe if I step back and look in from the outside a bit I will see things more clearly. For now I am grateful for stopping by this mindful and affirming website.
