Whew! What a morning I’m having with Eby. I’ve been digging deep into every tool in my therapeutic toolbox and not coming up with much. I’ve tried meeting sensory needs, emotional needs, physical needs, and the misery has culminated in a heavy cup being thrown and hitting Honeybee on the head. She wasn’t having a great morning either and that was the final straw for her.
After much drama, rolling on the floor (Eby, not me), rocking in the “ugly chair”, talking – but trying to use few words, his only explanation was, “I’M GRUMPY!”
I thought about it for moment and then announced we were going to pray to Jesus and then have a snack. I said a quick prayer, told him to wait in the chair while I made him a snack, and got busy fixing a bowl of rice with soy sauce, Tabasco sauce, and grated cheese – not my comfort food, but Eby loves it. I looked back into the family room just in time to see Eby hugging Honeybee and asking her to forgive him. He came to the kitchen with a smile on his face and dove into his snack.
I just made some fresh coffee and we are starting our morning all over again. I am so thankful to God who forgives us and let’s us begin our day, and our very lives, over again.
