One Photo | Twenty Words

The first day of the Summer holidays
started out so well.
Autism arrived uninvited;
it's all gone downhill from there.

 One Photo | Twenty Words is the lovely Abi's idea and you can join in the fun here.

Firstly this is a gorgeous picture of TBC. Secondly, Ruth, you are such an inspiring woman, both in how you deal with and talk about autism. I'm thinking of you all and hope the good days certainly outnumber the hard ones. Tomorrow is a fresh day! Hooray!

P.S I've added you to the linky!

Lovely to see a big natural smile from him! Sorry to hear that there weren't many smiles for either of you later in the day.lets hope he wakes up in a better frame of mind tomorrow.

Great photo of TBC, wonderful smile. I cannot image how hard some days are for all of you. I have been meaning to say for ages just how much I have learned from your posts about Autism. Now if I am in a store and I see a Mom with a youngest having a melt down, I certainly am kinder in my thoughts and I have often asked if there was anything I could do to help. I'm trying to live the Maya Angelou quote "when you know better, you do better". Thanks for helping me on this.

It's heart breaking, truly. I feel your pain.

Ahh the beginning of the holidays can always be hard. My girls always took a while to chill out and adapt. I expect he finds the change hard and also the loss of the school routine. Hard on both of you though I am sure. That's a lovely smile.

A lovely smile! Like the comment above I have learned a lot about autism from your blog. I am sorry today was tough - maybe he feels unsettled now there is no school. I send you best wishes and lets hope each day brings some sunshine your way.
