There are many blog posts that I read in my travels that have great information, a funny story or a thought provoking viewpoint. But every once in awhile, there is some posts that are written TO me. FOR ME.. and about what is in my heart. A blog post over at Momastery the other day is one such post. I only recently came across this blog through a good friend posting a link on facebook. There have been quite a few gems in just a week or so (I haven't even had a chance to read her archives!). In fact, I even took the time to read a few posts to Chief - again, some were thought provoking and some funny. But the post the other day, was FOR ME at exactly the right moment. To read "my" post, go here.
I have written about Little Man's struggles many times. I know logically in my head that he is wonderfully made and it is the world that needs to adjust. But, is has been a struggle for me to really believe that... deep down. That is hard to admit. I know there are many kids who struggle much more than my son. I feel a little selfish and dramatic feeling what I do at times and saying how hard it it. But it is. I have parented two other kids who are "model" children. So in contract, Little Man's challenges are big to me. They are difficult and they are embarrassing.
Glennon's post said everything I have been feeling so beautifully. Here are a few excerpts:
"Every child is gifted and talented. Every single one. "
"... if we are patient and calm... and we keep believing, we will eventually see the specific magic of each child."
