Throwback Post: An Uplifting and Honest Book

**THROWBACK POST**

September 5 2012:

Thank you tons and tons Kathy for the Amazon review …

“An uplifting and honest book about facing life’s challenges. Teaches you that how you respond to adversity is within your control and that you can still be happy even when circumstances are less than perfect. As the mother of a child with special needs, I really connected with the author. A great read!”

Throwback Post: A Day Full of Positive Consequences

**THROWBACK POST**

March 9 2013:

I had to dish out a negative consequence to Mr. T last night due to a little incident.

After choosing to go to his room for some calming down and reflection and watching the “D iz for Different” video journey (he loves watching it every movie night), he had these things to say, “I love my life. Life is so happy it makes me cry. We have all we need and want. We have food. We have a house. We have a car and most of all we have each other.” Then he wrote a note to Lillian that she is very kind and he loves her and his eyes were sweating because he was so happy!

Dishing out negative consequences is no fun y’all. Yet, the rewards to the soul that receives it far outweigh the uncomfortable moments. Here’s to a day full of positive consequences!
