Have you ever been out for a meal or in a drive thru line and when you attempt to pay for your order you find out that someone else has done it for you?
Not in a can I buy you a drink? sort of way but in a, it feels really good to brighten someone’s day sort of way.
Changes your whole outlook on the day and the people out there in the world doesn’t it?
This Autism Awareness Month has been especially rough. Not inside our home. Our autism is the same in April as it is May-March.
But out there… because of new numbers coming out, the stories of horrendous bullying, the people who feel alone with their disorder and the 90 new studies that come out each April finding causes for autism that seem aimed solely at making parents feel guilty.
So back to my giving-back-to-make-someone’s-day point.
I get to do it.
Did you know that there is someone out there called The Fairy Hobmother? Well he/she/it offered me the chance to give one of my readers a $75 Amazon gift card. Just because.
All you have to do is be a special needs parent and tell me what you would do with $75 from the Fairy Hobmother. This isn’t a competition, you don’t have to be the most in need or come up with an insanely creative comment. You just need to leave one and cross your fingers that someone out there is going to pick up the check for you today.
Edited to add: Since posting this today, another blogger has asked if they could also give a $25 gift card to some as an act of kindness. Can I just say I love people right now?? Because I do.
And please, please, please, if you are planning on sending me a picture for the Autism Awareness slideshow email it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post it to my facebook wall by this Saturday. Thank you!!!!!
