Lessons from My Nonverbal Son

Brandon has taught me so much in just three years.

He has taught me what is means to love unconditionally.  He has given me a glimpse into the love our Heavenly Father feels for us.  He’s shown me what it means to love someone so much it hurts; what if feels like when your heart is so full that it feels like it could actually burst.  There is nothing this child could do that would make me love him any less.

He has taught me selflessness.  He has shown me what it means to give your whole self to another, not to make yourself feel good, look good, or for others to notice, but solely for the happiness of that person.

He has taught me not to pass judgment.  People go through struggles and are fighting battles every day that we have no idea of.

He has taught me to keep my priorities in perspective.  We can all list our most important priorities, but do we actually live that way?  He reminds me of this every day.

He has taught me nothing if not patience - to have patience in the short term, as well patience in the long term.  He has taught me that I don’t need all of the answers right now.  He has helped teach me what it means to be still and to still be moving.  He has taught me to how to lean not on my own understanding.

Because of him I am a better person.

He has taught me all of these things without saying a single word.
