Guest Blogger Thursday
Through my Thursday posts I’d like to provide a more widespread forum for parents, family members, and practitioners of children with disabilities to provide practical tips for parents, as well as a place to share their views on raising a child with a disability. These contributions will be their ideas and stories, and not necessarily reflect the sentiments of those of autismmommytherapist
Today’s guest blogger is Shivon, welcome!
I randomly came across this quote today:
We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Actually I don’t believe it was so random, I believe God gracefully set it in my path to ever so slightly knock me upside the head.
So I would like to write a few words about today.
Today Diego is alive, smart, handsome, funny, and the best cuddler ever!!
Today Diego walked into class wearing his sunglasses, was called a rock star by a fellow classmate due to his “cool green sunglasses”, and turned to me and said “Mommy there are no stars on my glasses.”
I love his literal mind.
Today I went through my blogroll and took a moment to thank God for each mom that takes the time to share some of their deepest emotions and funniest moments with their very special children.
Today Diego didn’t go play by himself when dropped off.
Today I didn’t feel so alone.
Today Diego gave me such a big hug that it knocked me over.
Today Diego responded to a call of “good-bye” without prompting.
Today I took a moment from my sadness, stress and disappointment to thank God that I have my children,my future husband, and my family.
Today was a little easier.
