A Woman and her son with down syndrome.
Interesting event this morning while walking through the airport. Only thing on my mind was getting to my gate. Suddenly, out of no where, I had a stream of tears from my right eye. Is that the start, because i don't tear or cry? Didn't even brush them away. They felt soooo good!
Other things I am noticing. I'm not bruising any more! I have always had huge bruises that I don't have a clue where they came from. Pretty fun! I'm also sleeping much better and actually starting to remember pieces of dreams. Rarely do I find my teeth clenched anymore. I no longer have that invisible "screen" between myself and people. It had always been as if there was a real barrier between. I've quit needing to "hug" pillows, just like you said.
I have even been comfortable picking "middle" tables this past weekend. God is sooooooo good. This truly is a new life here.
We have some good friends who are in town this week visiting. They are astounded at the changes in my son. It is nice to hear from someone who isn't so close to the situation. We tend to miss so much when we are in the daily thick of things. They see facial feature changes, much more cognitive reasoning and thought, more outgoing, more animated, and much more purposeful in everything he does. So great! And we are only doing TKM® twice a day, six days per week.
My husband and I were talking this morning about the changes we see in our son. He is so much more willing to go with us, even if it is just doing petty errands. He never wanted to go before. He is always going to the airport to see me off or pick me up now. He used to fuss if we made him come with us.
He is participating in things that he would never have before. Example: My husband and son went to a baby shower/dinner while I was out of town this past weekend. There was a funny game of trying to diaper a baby doll. Not only did my son participate, which would have NEVER happened before, but he won! Everyone commented how gentle he was in doing it. Pretty funny. The kiddo has never done a diaper in his life. It is amazing how much TKM® has effected and improved our life.
I cannot thank you enough for your love, dedication, perseverance, and faithfulness. There is no way to express my gratefulness adequately. The gravitational pull from the past is gone. Healing is well on it's way to completion . You are treasures that I am very grateful to Jesus for. Love and blessings!
