The Wisdom of John

I've been feeling very rational for the last five days.  Five days is a long time to feel rational considering I've felt anything but rational since Mark died.  So today I thought I'd share the wisdom of John, my 12 year old with Down syndrome.

Said to my husband repeatedly: "You're a great dad."

Said to me repeatedly: "You're a great mom."

And said to me out of the blue one day last week: "Mom, you're brave."

These are things he never said before Mark died, and I'm not sure how he knows exactly what we need to hear.  Thanks, John.
