special kids, chosen moms…

Finally!  I have finally finished writing a book that has my blood, sweat, tears and more tears all over it.  (ok, not literally) and it is listed on Amazon HERE.

If you didn’t know, I had a beautiful child that contracted Group B Strep on his 3rd day in this world.  Within weeks we discovered he was blind, had cerebral palsy, a severe seizure disorder and was fed via a G-Tube with a 24 hour feeding pump.  This little guy took over 32 medications a day and decided to stick around for 15 1/2 years!  He was an amazing child that grew to be over 5 feet tall and certainly kept me in shape!

In my book, I am hoping to help other mothers of special needs children as they take care of their own.  It’s a practical guide with information regarding healthcare, schools and respite, organizing the household, travelling and laced with Scriptures throughout.

My own journey was made easier by allowing God to walk with me and help me make it day by day and hour by hour.  I cannot imagine this season in my life without Him to lean on.

Please take a moment to look at the book and let me know what you think.  I’m hoping that by helping mom’s of special needs children physically, that God can lift them up spiritually and lead them closer to His grace.  I want God’s peace to infiltrate your home, your life and the life of your little one.

oh no…you’re DOING it wrong…

Who doesn’t love a newborn baby?  Yes, it’s true, they ARE sweet and smell good….however; do you know how to handle a baby?

I didn’t think so.

Thankfully the internet has provided us with some practical tips.  Please take note.

This WILL be on the test.

to my darling child…

Letter from a Mother to her child:

“My dear child, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through.

If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep.

When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad  and don’t embarrass me.  Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a little one?

When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way…remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day…

The day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through.  If I occasionaly lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant.

Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked.

When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared.

With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you… my darling child. ”

on a lighter note……

Mrs. Ravioli comes to visit her son Anthony for dinner.
He lives with a female roommate, Maria.
During the course of the meal, his mother couldn’t help but notice how pretty Anthony’s roommate is.
Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Anthony and his roommate than met the eye.

Reading his mom’s thoughts, Anthony volunteered, “I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Maria and I are just roommates.”
About a week later, Maria came to Anthony saying, “Ever since your mother came to dinner, I’ve been unable to find the silver sugar bowl.  You don’t suppose she took it, do you?”

“Well, I doubt it, but I’ll email her, just to be sure.”

So he sat down and wrote an email:
Dear MaMa,
I’m not saying that you “did” take the sugar bowl from my house ; I’m not saying that you “did not” take it.
But the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.
Your Loving Son
Anthony
Several days later, Anthony received a response email from his MaMa which read:
Dear son,
I’m not saying that you “do” sleep with Maria, and I’m not saying that you “do not” sleep with her.
But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her OWN bed, she would have found the sugar bowl by now.
Your Loving MaMa
