MenoSunday; Life Lived Lovingly

We in the UK have had something of a news and current affairs focus on autism this past week - also a major BBC drama about the condition. Having friends whose children are affected, it has been appreciated first-hand how much patience and Love is required to live with it. What has also been noted is the tendency to need a singular focus. When that focus involves something which assists social integration, then healing and calm also figure. No more words needed from me today. Let this little film capture your hearts and minds.

For the Love of Dogs from Aeon Video on Vimeo.


  1. What a great video. Cory is an amazing child. I believe animals, especially dogs are wonderful for people with a handicap. Dogs just seem to know and love unconditionally. Thanks for sharing, have a happy weekend!

  2. This is a great video. Here in Utah we have really high rates of autism. They still haven't figured out why that is though. We have a family member who I believe has Aspergers but has not been diagnosed yet.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. It's so great that the dogs find a way to this children... and I'm glad that it is possible for Cory to get a friend.... the best one...

  4. I have a grandson who has a form of autism. Hard to mingle when young, easily distracted (bored), brilliant with maths...tried uni twice before settling. Spent years there but never graduated. Now works in the hospitality trade which is amazing for someone like him. We feel it is his way of getting over his problem of mingling. I believe anywhere he has worked he has been very popular with the customer and his bosses. He still finds it hard to stay at any one job for very long.
    One granddaughter has a partner in the US whose daughter is one of the worse cases I've come across and yet she is mostly a happy girl. They have moved from Alaska to New Jersey and found a wonderful school for her and she is coming on in leaps and bounds.
    I hear they are now trying to find out what causes and is there more of it now than in years gone by or was it just ignored and the children just put down as being naughty? xx

  5. It's a difficult disorder. I've had students with it.
