We have been hitting some bumps on the road to public school, but at home we are making great strides. Lots of excitement here this week. Coco has had open communication of the letter board with both Dad and Lilly this week. Huge accomplishment!
Coco told me this poem is about home. I love that she feels this way about home. It’s hard to keep this place a haven – to keep the stress of our battle for inclusion outside of this place. It creeps in. It’s hard not to get discouraged and feel defeated in the face of Coco’s challenges. Thank God that Coco is ever the optimist.
SANDY BEACHES CALL MY NAME
MEANDERING LANES LEAD ME HOME
YELLOW STARS ALIGHT MY WAY
TAKE MY BAG OR JUST LEAVE IT
NONE CALL ME LIAR THERE BELITTLE OR INSULT ME
GREEN THINGS ARE ALWAYS GROWING
A POT OF SOMETHING DELICIOUS ON THE STOVE
READY SO LONG ALWAYS CALLING ME BACK
HAVING SO LONGED FOR IT
NEEDING ITS PROTECTION
EVERY ROAD LEADS TO IT
TELL THE DESPERATE SOULS IM READY
THIS IS WHERE YOULL FIND ME
You have been ready for a long time—It is taking the others a long time to catch up with you—but they will.
