We took the dog for a walk a few days ago. We came across these wonderful berries. We watched for a few minutes while various birds came and picked at them. After a while our son said

“In the future I wish I would have had the chance to learn to fly. Sometimes being different hurts”.

I was immediately reminded of a little story the Paediatrician had told me.

The Paediatrician worked with someone who was diagnosed with Aspergers, Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. That person wanted to become a pilot but was told that they couldn’t. One by one the obstacles were overcome. With a lot of dedication and plenty of desire to learn from the setbacks, flying lessons were eventually started. One of the biggest obstacles was the prescribed medication they were taking. The Paediatrician eventually found a medication programme that complied with flying rules. After training and much patience that person got the pilot licence and can now fly.

After I had told our son this story he just smiled and said

“Sometimes it’s good to dream”.

  1. Bumblebees aren’t ‘supposed’ fly. Aerodynamically speaking, they shouldn’t be able to. As my father would say, “They got too much ass and not enough wing.”

    Human intent & spirit are powerful things. If he puts his mind to it, he can accomplish much.

      1. Hey, you never know. I used to dream about having a library with books I wrote in it. Seriously, since the age of 4, I dreamt that. It’s taken thirty-some years, but I finally have a book that’s published. You never know how your dream will manifest! 🙂 xxxxxxxxxx
