“I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done” – Buddha
Wow, it has been forever since I have been able to blog. Not sure that it matters to anyone but me, but I do want to keep this up. I came home from sewing retreat and had to work a little. Then went into book signing mode. My friend, Ann, who owns Stitchers Playhouse hosted a book signing for Ryan and I. Ryan was really psyched for it. His mom ordered him a stamp as it is hard for him to physically sign his name and it tires him out. I will get back to Ryan’s story soon and tell more of his issues, but he has a little bit of CP and has difficulty writing. He does, however, excel at the IPAD and the game controller. He still needs help placing the stamp and I know it is not as personal as a real signature and getting to write a message, but it works for him.
A few days before the signing, Ryan texted me and asked what he needed to wear. I just told him something nice. He wanted to look his best, which is so funny. Just like many 15 year olds, he cares about his wardrobe. I don’t really know why I was so busy, but it seems like there were a lot of items that needed to be done.
Ryan so enjoyed meeting the people who came to see him and signing his books. He really enjoyed being the center of attention – in a good way – not the way in which he is normally the center of attention. It seems everyone saw him as a kid, a writer, a special person and Not as a Special Person. Hope that makes sense.
I hope you enjoy his story!
