Last Friday morning Thomas told me that he feels guilty about all the stuff people give to him. I asked him what kinds of stuff he was talking about and as an example he said all the things he got at the chromosome 18 conference like the blow up guitar. He said that then there wasn’t enough for everyone else.
I explained to him that if people give him something it’s because they want to and we should let ourself feel happy about it. Also that this is a world of abundance and just because he is given something doesn’t mean that there’s not enough for others. He asked why there are people who have nothing if this is the case.
I told him they just haven’t realized this yet … some eventually figure it out …. and some never do … (Great reminder for this Mama too as I navigate the “realizing” and “eventually” part!!) Tons of hugs to all y’all! xoxo
I finally put the almond flour cookie recipe on my website y’all! Gluten free, dairy free and vegan and YUMMY!! Here ya go … Also, if you wanna make sure to not miss any of my blog posts you can sign up to get them as I post. I write about once or twice a week on living a natural, simple and inspired life (with a smattering of special needs parenting issues).
When we are urged by our inner voice to share, do or say something, sometimes we don’t know the reason. Simply trusting that the reason will become clear once we let go and embrace it is all that’s needed to understand the reason. I received this comment on my website last night. I share it with y’all for anyone who questions their inner voice and chooses to ignore it. ♥
I have only by accident come across your book and upon reading the first few pages was surprisingly ( even to myself) reduced to tears. Someone else has a daughter with 18p- … Someone else knows what that means… And the rarity involved. Someone else knows the endless parade of doctors and decisions and someone else does it as a single parent. I did not know I felt so alone in this until reading u describe my own child, Emalee, (13yrs) in your words about Lillian. I have lost a daughter to trisomy 18 and a husband to divorce. I look forward to reading your book knowing I am not navigating this alone.”
