He is a Handful.

I always look at Chaim Boruch for signs.


Colorful beautiful signs about his day.

He steps down from his school bus with his bright smile.

I look for more signs.

He pulls out his work from his backpack.

A white paper with pictures he chose, describing the things he liked about school that day…

“Speech Therapy”. “Reading”. “Computer Time”….and without fail: “Recess”.

He is so normal.

A ‘typical’ 6 year old who loves his ‘recess’.

And then I look at his hands.

Pudgy little cute hands.

I see stains of colorful ink.

But more than that, I see imagination, determination, growth, vitality, perception, passion, love and …talent.

A colorful sign… that he had a beautiful day.

We snuggle and ‘talk’…

Leaving the colors on his hands for as long as possible.

A handful of color.

A handful of ‘normal’.

A handful of magnificent signs.
