When Lightning Struck
I wasn’t too worried about her this year. Surely it gets easier and easier as they get older. Little did I know I would face a tunnel of darkness that would fill my entire being with fear and worry. The kind that only a mother can understand. I’m not blind, but I choose to focus on the silver lining. In Grade One I was called in early in the year, gosh it could have been January already. When her teacher told me, she lives in her own world, I could totally see it. Since she was one year old I could put her in the corner where ever I was, and she would keep herself busy with whatever she could get her hands on. She would go off into her own little world and have the adventure of a lifetime.
