720 by 900 mom and boysCan I tell you a secret? I’m not anyone special. I’m not a hero. I’m like you.

I have good days and bad days. There are days I don’t want to get out of bed and days I take on the world. I have times of amazing productivity and success and times when I curl up on the bed and cry. That’s just how life is, isn’t it?

So, why am I here? To share what helps me so it can help you, too.

My oldest son has autism. I write candidly for three reasons:

1) so others can see they are not alone.

2) so those not touched by special needs can get a peek at what it’s like.

3) to remind us all to choose gratitude as a perspective and look to God for strength.

When you visit, you’ll find posts about real life with special needs, hands-on homeschooling, and reviews. Here are some of my top posts:
