|Zipping south on Mopac in our van, Orion checked out the breeze.|
Orion felt the pleasant, warm wind outside the van with his hand turning at the wrist just outside the window, fingers outstretched like five dogs checking the outdoors. At four and a half years old, his arm was barely long enough for him to do this! As big brother Skyler watched this, he saw a guy in a vehicle in the next lane wave back. It was a simple, very sweet, fleeting moment.
I loved this. This guy didn’t know the kid was blind. Look at the effect a DeafBlind kid has around him!
One of my favorite quotes come to mind: “A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.”
The same goes for a smile and even a friendly hand wave.
