Soulful Sunday

Our autism journey

Sometimes you have to step back and think about what’s important. What drives you. What inspires you. What motivates you. There are moments in time you don’t feel like anything is going your way or can possibly change. I’m here to tell you it can. Life is hard. Life is ever changing. And life is complicated. But then you have this little boy that changes your whole soul. Changes every fiber of your being and you know what is important. Life gives you strength. It may not be the plan you had or even the direction that you want to go, but there you are. I was woken by screams. Screams from the boy that changed my life. I don’t know why he was screaming, but there they were. I got to him and he says “wanna go outside”. It was five am. I said in a little bit. The screams continued. I could tell he wasn’t quite awake. He got up and ran to my bed. We laid there a few minutes and he got up again. “Wanna milk” he said. I got his milk and laid on the couch with a blanket. He screamed “winter blanket” and pulled it off of me. I pulled him to my lap and covered him up. We laid there for awhile and we fell asleep. Today I don’t feel strong. I feel like I want to run and hide from the world, but I know that the strength is there, I know that it is a matter of seeing it in a different moment and holding each other tight. Life is a rollercoaster ride of emotions. The key is hold on tight, know this is a moment in time and know you are a lot stronger than you think you are. Make today matter. Smiles to all and donut daze!
