This year I have so much to be thankful for. God loves me and has been so kind to me. Against many odds I was able to take regular classes this year. A few years ago I was in a segregated school and learning about letters and numbers up to 5. I was learning nothing new. Another waste of a year. I was measuring my life by the attacks I made on my teachers in protest of a good mind being made to address the most mind numbing work. I had been identifying coins for the last 3 years. It was boredom to say the least. Now I get to learn something new everyday. Practicing how to live in the real world means following how neurotypical people get to live. I am now getting to live among them. I love it. I have to study like the next person. Opportunities are opening up to me everyday. I am blogging, writing for magazines, getting involved in autism missions, and doing more fun things. I can now ride a bike, go to sports events, go to church and Stockade, and I have more courage to try new things. I am thankful for so many blessings. I love that I now have a voice and have peace about being able to have more say in my life.
