Throwback Post: Warm and Beautiful Review for D iz for Different

**THROWBACK POST**

October 5 2012:

My eyes were a sweating this morning when I read this warm and beautiful Amazon review from Giuliana LaRocca Ragas … Warms my heart and adds fuel to the fires of my passion.

“This book was given to me by very good friend of mine who knows Camilla through their group. I have a two year old son with Down Syndrome so she knew that I would benefit from reading it. Within minutes of opening the book I was not able to put it down. Camilla is right on the nose with so many things. Her book gave me so much hope for my son and his future and let me know that it was okay to be sad and angry. Not all days are going to be easy, but it is okay because we can all get through them with the strength we have within. She gives so much hope for the special needs world and her book gives our children a voice. There is nothing wrong with them just the people that think that there is. I have read it again and highlighted some amazing things that she has said. Regardless of the fact if you a new parent with a child with a disability or someone that has an older child this book is a must read. No one is alone in this, we are all in it together 🙂

Thank you Becky Gaylor Hobby for making sure Giuliana got one of my books!!

Stepping out of my warm, fuzzy cocoon tonight … Going to Sierra Arts and gonna hang out with some adult people at 7:30. Perhaps I won’t turn into a pumpkin when the clock strikes 8:30. We shall see! If you see me there and I don’t see you please get my attention and say “Hey”!

Wonderful job Sharon!! Loved it!!!! Such awesomeness!

She said, “Thank you! I needed that!” … Yesterday I had coffee with a local Reno facebook friend. We had never met in person and she is also the mom of a special needs child (teenager). I do what I always do when greeting someone … I gave her one of my hugs … Anyone who has received one of my hugs knows they are filled with love, caring, and warmth … I lavishly share my hugs with anyone I can.

This one was extra special because many of us moms don’t get these types of hugs from our special needs children. They just simply have sensory issues and warm hardy hugs don’t mix well with that. Why do I share this? Just simply to encourage YOU to share more hugs. We are human and we like to be touched, especially when it’s filled with love and caring. Go hug somebody today!! May I suggest that it’s a real hug, not one of those half leaned into hugs, where you pat the person on the back. Be still … Be quiet … And give a Hug full of caring for the person receiving it. They just may say, “Thank YOU! I needed that!”

Throwback Post: Movie Night: The Book Thief and Eloise’s Halloween

**THROWBACK POST**

October 4 2015:

Team TLC movie night … Last night. Double feature! “The Book Thief” and “Eloise’s Rawther Unusual Halloween” … Geoffrey Rush and Emily Watson were awesome in The Book Thief. Loved the snowball fight in the basement.

Thomas says, “Good, but expected it to be better.”

Lillian says, “Magnificent, good, awesome, great, and fantastic.”

Throwback Post: 50 Days 500 Questions

**THROWBACK POST**

October 4 2013:

Thomas’ observations last night during our before bed chat ritual where we talk about whatever he wants …. “I ask you at least 10 questions a day, probably more. In 50 days that’s 500 questions!”

Yes, Thomas, I agree. And he stumps me at least once a day with his questions! I also told him that sounds like a great book title, “50 Days, 500 Questions”!

Throwback Post: First Aid Kit With Sunset and Dancing Parties

**THROWBACK POST**

October 4 2013:

Thank goodness for the first aid kit in the car! The brake light thingey let loose on the freeway while driving Thomas and Lillian to school this morning. It was just dangling by one little ole wire! Gave it some first aid when I got to the school. Now to figure out how the heck this thing was attached! The tape did it’s job til I made it home. Anyone know about these things? I don’t see how it was attached! Suppose I could always duct tape it! HA!

Beautiful sunset show from last Sunday night! Pure yumminess for the heart and soul!

Dishes washed, one Team TLC rockin our bottoms dance party and now we are ready for movie night! Wahooooo!

Throwback Post: Blessed Times So Many Millions

**THROWBACK POST**

October 3 2013:

Thomas asked me earlier what time I went to bed last night. I told him and we went about our business. A little bit later he came over and helped me wash the dishes and then cleaned the stove and told me he wanted to help so I could go to bed earlier.

I am blessed times 500 million and beyond that I get to be this little person’s Mama!! xoxo

Throwback Post: Sibshops With Birthdays and Library Days

**THROWBACK POST**

October 3 2015:

Sibshop time for Thomas! Super big plus: Don Meyer is facilitating this one as it’s a demonstration Sibshop. I went through Sibshop training with Don facilitating a few years ago at UNR. I know Thomas is having a ball! He was sitting next to Don when I left. Oceans of gratitude to Diana Beeghly Rovetti and Nevada Center for Excellence in Disabilities for putting this together. This is Thomas’ 4th one and he loves being a part of them!!!

Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my Momma, Patty!! Being your daughter is one of my greatest treasures and one of my biggest opportunities for learning and growing. Love, Love, Love YOU! Hope you and Frank are having FUN!!! We miss having y’all just around the corner!! xoxo

Extra cool library day! We went to a library we’ve never visited!! So awesome, beautiful view, and we didn’t even get to look through all the books and movies. The lighting or something inside made Lillian sick to her stomach. Had to go really fast! She felt better once we got outside and headed home. We’ll have to go back and try again!
