Every day I try to be thankful for something. Some days that can be a challenge! These days I think about my family and the things we’ve been through and I realize how young and unprepared I was for this journey. Had someone told me what it was going to be like I probably would have taken a different path.
I dreamt of my son being a baseball player. He’s a musician and I’m so proud! I dreamt of my daughter being a gymnast. I’m so excited about our first Special Olympics event this month!
I can’t imagine who I would be without them. Had I been told “These are your kids. Do you want this life?” I probably would have chosen a different path because I wasn’t strong enough. But it was only by being their mom that I gained the strength I needed to be their mom.
So no matter what happens on any day I can always be thankful that I had no idea what I was getting into because I would have wimped out. These kids are amazing and they’re helping me learn to be amazing too and I’m so grateful to get to be their mom!
