Raising Special Needs Kids Raising Special Needs Kids
My husband took my son out to get a haircut today, he was way overdue. The lady my husband goes to is an older woman, and she always remembers them. She has sent DH home with her phone number in case we needed a sitter, and sent them home today with a baby blanket she had made for her own son. She really is the sweetest thing, and apparently her son had medical issues, too. I just find it so amazing that out of allllll the people she sees every day, she remembers my husband and son, and goes out of her way to be sweet to them. She told them today that Nathaniel is pretty much the only one she remembers and enjoys cutting lol. She is also the ONLY one that can do it without making him scream and cry the whole time.

When I find someone like that it just really warms my heart. Have any of you had this type of experience?

That's true! If we keep ourselves open to positive interactions I think it would happen more often. Most of the time I am busy and rushed, and don't take the time to chat and be friendly. I'm probably missing out on lots of great people.

It sounds like your son made a huge impression on this lady's heart! I think this would happen a lot more often if more people would open their hearts and minds a little. What a thoughtful thing for her to do with the blanket. Thanks for sharing. :)

Actually, I meant if the other people would open their hearts and minds to interacting with those with disabilities, but you have a really good point too. Sometimes I don't take the time as a parent to allow the interactions either. Great reminder that it's a two-way street!

It sure was and she still talks about her years in his classroom.

Quoting mlogsdon:

Wow! I've had some great teachers, but never anyone like that. That must have been really good for your daughter. :)

Quoting luvnature:

That is so awesome. I'm very happy for you. yes I have encountered people like that through the years. The last person I remember who was genuinely the sweetest person ever was my daughter's last elementary teacher. He was her teacher for 5 yrs (SCC homeroom....SCC means Self Contained Classroom). he took my dd under his wing and was not only her teacher, but also the one person in whom she confided whenever she ran into problems with the regular studends (like bullies etc.). She told him everything that upsetted her at school and because of him, dd has very good memories from elementary school. he was a teacher that was not afraid to give his students a hug when they needed one and he always had an encouraging word for each student in his classroom. He even drove my dd home one day during his lunchtime because she was not feeling well and my dh was at work and I don't drive and had no way to get my dd. that is how nice he was. I learned that he was transferred to another school in another town a few years ago.

 Yes and when you find these special people, do everything in your power to keep them in your lives. It will make a world of difference.
