Breathless in Birmingham

There are events that shape your life.   They can change you beyond anything that you could dare imagine, both good and bad.  I cannot go into the specific details of this particular trauma because it might hurt some if I did, but yesterday heartbreak came to visit.  One would think a woman who has…

Heartbroken ….

  Sigh…. Even when you know something … it hurts when the news finally comes.  Such is life.  There are ups and there are downs.  One must learn to savor the moments of joy … the moments of beauty … for there are always going to be the moments filled with sorrow and pain. Autisim isn’t…

Sitting here in my Bikini

Yes, you read that right.  And NO, I am NOT posting picks.  I know I wear my suit in front of other people, but I lie to myself and think about Mikey’s fabulous expression, and I pretend that I am just that HOT.  Pictures however require that I acknowledge reality.  I prefer my Fantasy. The…

My Life

Yesterday’s Nightmare

Special Needs?

What does that mean to you? To me it means that I am the mother of four amazing human beings who are slightly different than the “norm.”  Whatever that is.  I wouldn’t know because I was never that myself–the norm–I mean.  I have never really thought of my situation as being a bad thing.  I…

Walking Through Doors

I wanted to share a post from my honey’s blog, he wrote on a topic that is near and dear to my heart.  Well, actually all of what he says is near and dear to my heart.  When he starts talking about our Autistic Son, Collin — well — it jumps to a whole new…
