My brother is a never-ending source of inspiration and awe for me - he has mastered skills that no one could have predicted as being possible given his cognitive challenges. But smiling for the camera is not one of them! Try taking a picture, and, unless caught off-guard, he comes up with the goofiest looking grimace that is nothing like his beautiful natural smile. A few years ago, on an impulse, instead of saying "Smile!" I said, "Say my name!"
He did... and now, for pictures, he says my name.... with love spilling over, eyes shining, and a beatific smile.
How lucky am I, to have such joy in my life as this?
