Remember When life was so much easier

Life has been so busy with raising children, running a business,working fulltime you sometimes forget the simple things in life. Remember how things were when you were younger. Today there is so many chemicals and additives added into our everyday items. This year our family is trying to llive a more natural life. This blog will contain recipes, gardening tips, links to other blogs who share the same passion as I do.

Someone I Love...........................

Some of the people who know me personal know that disabilities have played a very big part in my life for the last 26 years.  I would not change it in anyway.  I love all my children.  They are my world.  They have achieved so much in their lives and they have my unconditional love. 

I also work in the field and would not have it any other way.  I can't take credit for the poem below.  I wish I could.  I wish I also knew who wrote it, but it somes it up on how I feel and how any other parent feels when they have a child that has dealt with challenges and disabilities in their life.

Someone I love endures the pain and challenges that break my heart and renew my spirit at the same time.
Someone I love is unable to advocate for themselves for things that most of us take for granted.
Someone I love will never have the opportunities that every child should have.
Someone I love will need unconditional love and support after I'm gone - this frightens me to the core.
Someone I love encounters pity, stereotyping responses and prejudices at every turn because they look, act and/or learn differently from others.
Someone I love has needs that require me to allow outsiders to have power and input in areas that should be mine alone to meet.
Someone I love will continue to look to me for everything in life long after other children are able to assume a place as part of the world.
Someone I love has needs that require more time and energy than I have to give.
Someone I love has needs that have become the driving force behind major decisions my family makes.
Someone I love has changed me in ways I will never be able to describe.
Someone I love has taught me about love and the really important things in life...

My beautiful amazing children
