What is Perfection?


Perfection is a slow morning.

It’s waking up at 8:30 and staying in jammies until noon.

It’s playing inside with sisters…a slow morning turning into a slow afternoon.

It’s daddy coming home and the slow afternoon turning into a slow evening and night. Dinner outside, swimming.

Not doing much of anything; that’s perfection.

Perfection is enough memories to last forever.

It’s remembering smiles that are so big, eyes can’t stay open.

It’s remembering hugs every time you meet.

It’s countless conversations and a thousand firepit nights and hundreds of chemistry and astronomy classes.

Perfection is being lucky enough to know some really amazing hearts.

Those hearts are perfection.

Perfection is a lemonade stand on a 90* day.

It’s raiding your Lala’s pantry for cups and lemonade mix, begging your mom to go to the store for ice, and setting up shop in the front yard.

It’s every person over the age of 50 stopping and buying a VERY concentrated cup of lemonade…and always tipping generously.

Perfection is a your summer lemonade stand.

Perfection is a basket of first eggs.

It’s expecting nothing then being over-the-moon surprised by 6 somethings.

It’s watching your hard work be productive.

It’s your seven chickens finally laying.

That’s perfection.

Perfection is a summer evening.

It’s daddy getting home, changing into a swimsuit and heading down to the pool.

It’s bbq for dinner, eating outside. Not having plans, goofing off, and doing what makes us the most happy.

Perfection is a slower pace.


What is Perfection?


Perfection is feeling relief, knowing there are things I can do to help you.

It’s putting a name to your struggles you’ve had for a long time, so you aren’t perceived by others as just being naughty or weird.

It’s reading a book, the author describing certain behaviors and realizing he has just exactly described you…and then reading how parents can help.

Perfection is having a friend like Suzanne to give advice, a friend like Megan to offer any and all resources and a friend like Tara to offer support.

Perfection is you – aspergers and all.


What is Perfection?


Perfection is watching you have something that is just yours, and you loving it.

It’s hearing you practice and then hearing you get excited when it sounds just right.

It’s your teacher getting as big a kick out of you as we do, and seeing something in you that we do, too.

Perfection is you as a little pianist.
