Several years ago, I witnessed this same scene every morning on my drive to school. A mother would come from her house pushing her special needs teenage son in his wheelchair. She would carefully guide him to the schoolbus driver and awaiting bus. The bus driver would greet them heartily, and then gently lift the young man onto the bus. Mother was watching and smiling as her son was being boarded. Then, as the bus began to pull away from the curb, mother began waving and waved until the bus was around the corner and out of sight. This mother, her son and the bus driver taught me some valuable life lessons: the lesson of perseverance, the lesson of love that knows no bounds, and the lesson of thankfulness in all things for we have much to be thankful for!
Have a blessed week!
