Given the struggle things have been lately, I’ve needed as much inspiration as I could find to help refill my bucket. I have a half a zillion autism parents blogs bookmarked in my RSS reader, and I am woefully behind on them. But that’s one of the places I often go to find words I need to hear.
With so many of you, we read your blogs for both inspiration and realism, hope in things not yet seen and practical ways of dealing with what we see right in front of us. You have helped make us better parents and better people.
I’ve been thinking about creating a separate blog where the posts are primarily links to the great stuff we find on your blogs. You all write such amazing things!
Which brings us to such a post for today. MOM – Not Otherwise Specified (MOM-NOS for short) wrote “The purplest” , the story of her son’s 10th birthday. No commentary needed, which would detract from its beauty and perfection anyway. Just go read it. Cry, cheer, and let it make your day like it did mine.
