Today is Kermit the Frog’s birthday. I have loved him ever since his Sesame Street days long before I discovered that I was autistic. I have watched him in all the Muppet movies and productions and have enjoyed every minute of it.
Kermit the Frog has been such a comfort to me ever since I was a little autistic girl. I remember getting the video to The Muppet Christmas Carol way back in December 1993. I was so excited that I got it. And years later I would get the DVD version for Christmas in December 2017. And just recently, for Christmas last year, I got some other Muppet products with Kermit in them. Those were very exciting times in my life.
Kermit the Frog has been with me through doctor visits, quarantines, bloodwork, etc. I am so thankful that Jim Henson had created Kermit and thankful for the comfort that Kermit has brought me.
Happy birthday, Kermit the Frog! Thank you for bringing me so much comfort to me through the years as somebody who is autistic.
