Why I’m thankful today

Lizze and I had a really restful break this time around. I think applying some of what we learned in marriage counseling helped us to use our time together without the kids in a better way. 

I mentioned before that we went for a really nice walk and talked about us. That was so relaxing because I personally love walking. 

As tired as we both are all the time, we didn’t end up taking a nap but instead spent the time awake and doing things together. 

For the most part, I even took a break from writing as well. 

Something else that seemed to really help was just enjoying the quiet. It’s weird but sometimes when the kids are gone, the house is too quiet and so we have the TV on for background noise.  Not doing that this time around, allowed us to truly appreciate the quiet and that was much more relaxing. 

Let see…. What else… 

Oh… We stopped off at my parents house for a brief visit and I helped my Dad carry some things out of the basement. I really like these like impromptu visits. ☺ 

As I’m writing this, I’ve received a text message telling me that the boys will be home within the hour and I’m really excited to see them.. 

Just to show how much of a dork I am and how easy I am to please, my morning just went from great to super fricking awesome.  All this because as I was scrolling through Netflix, I received an alert that season 4 of All Hail King Julien was just released…  I love this cartoon and so do the kids.  

There will very likely be some snuggling on the couch with Mr. Emmett and watching season 4 this afternoon…  ☺ 
I’m so grateful that we’ve had this break. It’s been a pretty awesome one.

You’re superb and is an honour to read your stories! Wish I knew how to do a blog. Have learnt SO MUCH that may help you over my 14 year fight for my AMAZING 16 year old son with Aspergers Syndrome and 3 other diagnoses AND YOU have things that will teach and inspire me. Surely ALL of us sharing reaches more families so they don’t have to try and test all that we have! The miserable failures at least!
I realise ‘our children’ are all unique and special and all will have different traits so EVERYTHING you do is tailor made for your child but people can just tweak and adapt these strategies and techniques. I STILL learn daily/hourly and EVERY day brings trials and tribulations.(SO much to write about) It’s so hard,so heartbreaking and soul destroying many days but there are MANY good things,rewarding things/times,new positives and we celebrate EVERY ONE! Eg,even having a drink in front of someone else on just 1 day at 1 time! Every single day my son has me in fits of giggles! I myself am disabled and take a LOT of medication but the laughter from my son is better than any of it! He really is my world and keeps my world turning( I just have to hold it up,change it,adapt it and make it work for him.) You’re the ONLY person I’ve found that does this. Met 1 AMAZING guy, Craig on Twitter and its so nice to not be/feel completely alone….but once you’ve found a couple you realise you’re missing out somewhere as there must be millions!
I hope it was ok to write this and put it in this box! I’m new to tech and do it on my phone and me and tech don’t mix! If it’s somewhere it really shouldn’t be I can only apologise but just didn’t know another way to reach out to you and when I read your pieces I’ve been there and done lots,not thought about some things you have etc etc
Thank you
