I realize I have been absent from the blog.

Life has been moving forward full steam ahead.  We have celebrated monumental birthdays, started school, recently enjoyed Thanksgiving and I am fully engrossed in planning an engagement party for one of my daughters.  I know right?!

When I began my parenting journey decades ago with the plans I had, never in my wildest imagination did I foresee any of my children marrying.  It never occurred to me that any would develop, change, overcome the obstacles they were born with to grasp hold of the milestones that the majority of society takes for granted.  Not only is this the case for one of my children but most likely will be the same for two more.  Crazy isn't it?!

It's funny when we envision our lives playing out one way how life steps in and shows you how it really will be.  I never thought I would have children that spoke and was accepting of that.  When some of my children did acquire speech I know that I was provided with a gift I didn't know I wanted.  I would still be fine if I did not hear words uttered from their sweet lips however I know my life is so much more enriched that I can.

This takes nothing away from my children who speak to me in nonverbal ways.  I receive their messages loud and clear as I believe they do mine.

This is my favourite time of year.  I love all the holidays and the special events of each season.  I hope that all of you feel the kindness of family, friends and strangers alike over the coming months.

I promise I will try and do better with this blog....
