Let the beauty within shine through your smile.

Breakthrough — at least it was yesterday. Asking for help is okay and the results brought about a few laughs, smiles and a likely to be forgotten promise that he’ll ask again when needed. He was really trying to be helpful, but couldn’t remember why he’d chosen to strip the bed at midnight and then remake it just a few minutes later. When he got up for the morning, he came and said, “I tried to make the bed, but I really fuddled it up. Will you fix it?” That was the first of several instances throughout the day where he asked for assistance — and wasn’t upset about having to do so. Smiles throughout the day and into the evening with a sincere thank you for listening and supporting him were shared with each member of the family in some shape or form.
