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.
