Small Talk, Big Heart

Heart that givesBy Cathy Jameson

I saw a young boy a few months ago at a picnic.  We’ve had some ‘in passing’ conversations since then – a quick hello, how are you doing, it’s nice to see you again kinds of small talk.  Ronan hasn’t been going to church with us lately, but, last week, the boy remembered seeing him at that picnic. 

While in the parking lot waiting for my daughter after a game one day last week, the boy, who’s about 7 years old, saw me and said hi.  He asked what we were doing, and I told him we were going to go home since we couldn’t stay for the next game.  “It would be too much for my son.”  He very quickly replied, “He’s the one who was in the yellow headphones who was in the wheelchair.” 

Taken aback, I said, “Wow, yes.  Good memory!”

I continued, “It’s actually a stroller that Ronan uses when he gets too tired to walk.  But, yeah, that’s my son.”  I then gave the boy a little more information about why Ronan had those yellow headphones and why he sometimes needs that stroller.  “When he was much younger, he could do things like other little boys could do.  But then, Ronan got sick.”  I shared just a few things that happened to Ronan then and added, “Ronan is non-speaking now.” 

The boy’s sister was with him and had tons of little kid questions, like Can he say anything?  How did he get sick?  Is he okay now?  Since I don’t know their family very well yet, I answered each question with very simple facts and also kept the conversation very G-rated, meaning no talking of vaccines.  The boy had stayed quiet while his sister and I were talking. 

The next day, I saw the boy again.  “Hey there!”  I happily greeted him.  His greeting had a different emotion than mine.  “I feel bad for Ronan,” he told me with sad eyes.  Completely taken by surprise, I said, “Oh!  Why, buddy?”  I had spared him lots of details, like that we saw Ronan decline most after vaccinations, but I could tell what little I did share the day before had really affected him. 

“Well, he…” the boy started, “…he can’t talk and do things by himself.  What if he wants to tell you something?”  I told him, “You’re right.  Ronan still can’t do some things, but remember when I said Ronan can communicate?  I shared that he can type, and he can use sign language, and he can write with a pencil, and he can show us things that he wants.”  Quietly, the boy nodded his head and said, “Y-e-s, I remember.”  Still, the boy’s eyes told me that he was quite moved knowing that my son couldn’t do things the boy could easily do. 

My next words needed to be encouraging. 

“Ronan is a pretty happy kid.  We keep him safe and as healthy as we can.  When Ronan pops into your mind, like it did just now, maybe you can say a little prayer for him.  Or maybe you can say a little prayer for the person who’s helping him.  When you see me without Ronan, it’s because he’s being taken care of by someone else.  It would be so neat if you could say a little prayer and ask God to bless Ronan or bless our helpers.  It’s because of our helpers that we’ve been able to keep Ronan happy and healthy, too, and I’m so grateful for them.” 

It was a big ask, but the little boy said he could say a prayer. 

Knowing I’d captured his full attention, I continued, “And maybe you can add a thankful prayer for what you get to do, too.  You get to do lots of pretty neat things, don’t you?  You get to go to school, and play with friends, and go outside and explore new places.  Don’t feel bad that Ronan can’t do that stuff, but be thankful that you can do what you want to.  I think that it’s a really good thing that you’re able to things.”  Without saying anything, he nodded.  Then as quietly as he had approached me, he turned to walk away and said, “Okay…bye, Mrs. Jameson.” 

I thought I sounded convincing, but time will tell if I helped turn this kid’s frown upside down.  I’ll look forward to our next meet up.  I’ll wonder if the boy will tell me that he thought to pray for my son.  I’ll hope that he’ll share that he’s gotten to do something amazing.  I’ll also say a little prayer myself.  I’ll pray that he’s one of the kids who, when he grows up, will make the world a better place for a child like mine.

Mother calls for new law on Restraint in schools - BBC News 25-10-2022
Calum Morrison has a voice and that family has mum -entum !
How is it possible ? Kids with disabilities /difficulties got to school from 1975 onwards and punishment ,restraint, seclusion is still their chosen classroom techniques ?
Helen Sanderson Associates - Person Centered Planning Assessments ,are not a add on luxury ,they are a basic essential , why are they not available for families unless they pay for the training
themselves ,and do they even know these training packages are available ?and not too expensive either .so why are health /social care and education provision services not using them ?
If schools are meant to be a place of safety for kids and teachers , the current provision is Bedlam ,
that type of education leadership is a containment zone a concentration camp style institution /

Hi Cathy, Willie here

Your post was beautiful and patient and kind

I have not posted here in a while . I tend to float back through here after some autism event has occured in my life.

I get some strength from the post like the one you have made and the parents that respond to it.
My event was taking my 17 year daughter to practice driving. I gave her to many instructions and then it went south. Autism is a viral encephalitis that causes encephalopathy. There in ability to process words and directions and multitask is a direct result of that. I am a physician but it took me years to realize that I could not make her better by trying to drill over and over again. I had to persuade her to see why she needed to practice and to keep her spirits up. In a moment of clarity I realized that my way was wrong and that any benefit was outweighed by the emotional harm. So I let my wife take over.

My relationship with my daughter for years now has been cheerleading and not day to day stuff unless she needs my help. Today I remembered why that is. I forget about her disability. When she was driving in the parking lot of a ball stadium she forgot to put on breaks and I yelled at her to brake and it broke her heart. When I asked her why she did not break when I told her too she said there were too many directions, too many directions on her plate and too many thoughts. She cried and cried.

She asked me to apologize for yelling and I did. I explained to her that I was sorry and that it was my fault for not making it clear and what to do. That we should do things stepwise and one at a time and that with time she would be able to integrate everything with practice. I explained that she will be great it just takes time and that I am learning too.

She asked me how she got “ you know what” and that she was trying to figure that out, how she got it. I explained to her very matter of factly that she can say Autiam and that it was from the vaccines that we gave her to keep her safe and that they caused the problem and that we did not know because they lied to us.
It took me years to figure out that I was going about it all wrong and the pain you feel today is from the hurt I caused years ago.

This is disease has a way to be changed but we must first identify it for what it is a viral encephalopathy from a viral encephalitis. They misclassified it because they did not want to be responsible for causing brain infections and loss of function for millions of kids in America and the world.

As far as God goes I will pray for your son Ronan. Please pray for my Elika and all of the children and parents harmed by this drug dealer scourge.



“A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out” (Matthew 12:20)

What does it mean that “a bruised reed He will not break” in Matthew 12:20?

This young man gives us a glimpse of the heart of Christ.
Well done.


Absolutely beautiful, Cathy. Thank you very much for sharing. Sending love and prayers for Ronan, for you and all your family and for the young boy whose heart was touched by Ronan. God bless and take care...


Thanks for sharing your beautiful conversation.


Cathy-What a beautiful story you have just written about such a caring young boy who wishes to know more about Ronan and feels so much empathy for him. I think he will indeed grow up to be someone who can make the world a better place for children like ours. He already has by showing his compassion. I have an adult son with autism and I pray every day for a miracle cure for him and all the children/adults affected by the autism condition. God Bless every one of them.
