Kids are nothing if not honest– that’s what I keep learning
It’s 6 : 00 PM on day 852 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to take off my top, brush my teeth, feed myself Appam and baked beans for breakfast, publish my Disability of the Day feature, continued reading Worth the Scandal: Worth It by Karen Erickson, go shopping and feed myself a pepper-steak pie for lunch.
Today while shopping with my sister I caught this little girl staring at me so I greeted her moments later she turned to my sister and asked what’s wrong with her to which my sister answered rather nonchalantly nothing she just can’t walk after which I looked at her and said with a genuine smile on my face trying to make her understand I can’t walk but I’m just like you I honestly feel honoured to be in a position to show people that we are more alike than we are different. Do you find the honesty of children refreshing?
