Happy Valentine’s Day to the women who keep inviting my son to playdates, and their kids who haven’t forgotten friendship. I wanted to write a blog about you, but I decided a love poem was so much cheesier. So, here goes:
You’re the ones who were there
When there were good times to share
But you didn’t turn your backs
For the skills that my son lacked
Instead you pulled us closer
Never leaving us to wonder
If we had any friends
Or relationships we had to mend
You demonstrate such patience
Even when he shows resistance.
You compliment his intellect
And all the places we have trekked
You accept the fact we don’t conform
Your words are always very warm.
Thank-you for being people on which I can depend!
Thank-you for listening and never condemning!
Thank-you for always extending the invite!
Thank-you for loving my son without fright!
