The Power of Attraction

Good Afternoon

His day program gave me an interesting tidbit.  They have (very smartly) continued to introduce different staff members to Tyler.  The motive being that the more people there he gets familiar with the better he will adjust to the staff as a whole.  As a result, the Director reports that Tyler has become very popular with the staff.  They stop in to see him because they just want to say hello.

It's funny to hear this for the simple fact that this is not the first time I've heard a story like this.  When Tyler attended public school, he was a popular figure with students, faculty, and staff.  When he was often either hospitalized or brought in for tests at the local hospital during his younger days, much of the staff knew him.  When we took him to doctor's offices the staff would come out to greet him and in some cases snatch him up and disappear with him to visit with more staff.  

It makes me wonder what that "it" factor is?  Why are so many people drawn to him in that way?  I mean, of course he is magnificently handsome like his Daddy and all, but what else is it?  It really is an interesting question...

I think it has a lot to do with his authenticity.  Tyler is absolutely the most genuine person you will ever know.  There is nothing fake about him.  What he feels is what you see and I believe that makes him unique.  When he smiles at you, or laughs, or hugs you, it is REAL. There is a comfort level in that.  I think most of us wish we dealt with more people who we can trust at face value.

Perhaps this is yet another lesson we can learn from our special children.  The more genuine we are the more drawn to us people will be.  The more "real" we are, the more people will trust what they see and the more they will want to be around you.  I think this is just human nature.   

Whatever the reason, Ty was blessed with this gift.  And the gift of being incredibly handsome too.

Be well and God Bless.   Tom
