We had a big sales meeting this morning at work.  One of our initiatives this year is to embrace Autism Speaks and make a difference for kids who have been diagnosed with Autism.  One of our saleswomen has a child with Autism.  She spoke at the meeting and eloquently stated the essence of motherhood.  I have never heard it put in such a poignant way and I’m grateful to her for summing up such a strong emotion.

“He is my heart walking outside my body.”

And he is.
