Friends are the absolute best

I always felt like I was missing out on something by not having friends my age.  I was, but not what I thought though.  My friends have been older and have helped me through the years to be who I am today.

I am lucky to have had the friends I’ve had.  They accept me completely for who I am.  They help me reach my goals.  Real friends lift you up Always.  They get you and love all your nuances.

Just having these types of friends makes life full of adventure and fun.  Only forgetting I’m 14 sometimes makes discussions interesting.  I love that I can hold my own with the twenty-somethings and thirty-somethings.  Each time they’ve been surprised by my input.

That being said I love my peers.  There is nothing like being in a group of people who spell to communicate.  Always accepting, they get me in a way no one can.  Pure love and understanding, support and camaraderie.

Spending a week with my friend Elliot was pure perfection.  We hung out doing our own thing and were so connected.  All distance really does is give weird sense of friendship a really grander feeling.  We are separated by many kilometres, but connected energetically still. Can’t explain it and maybe you don’t believe very deeply, but I promise it is my experience. We are best friends.

Jordyn Pallett very much enjoys hanging with my people and their families.

Jordyn Pallett enjoys doing all his friends favourite activities very much.

Friends we will always be,

    My son John (age 13) and I were watching your video today. I’m not sure if you have more than one video & so it’s the one called Jordyn’s Rocky Journey: Visions of an Autistic Boy. It was really moving & we were amazed to see all that you go through & your positive attitude about life! The video talked about your blog & so here I am. My son John has different struggles than you do. He has anxiety and depression which has kept him from attending the school he used to attend. It was very inspiring to see all you go through each day & your determination for life & your love for your family and friends! What a blessing you must be to them! I also enjoyed reading your poem “Being an Angel”. It seems that you are an angel to friends, family and others with Autism.
    God bless you and all that you are doing. It is making a difference!

    1. Karen,
      Thank you for such kind words. While our struggles are different, they have the same result – not attending a regular school and being better off for it. Wonder if the system will ever change. John has a great mom.
