Everything I need to know in life, I learned from my child with special needs...
*Sleep deprivation won't kill you...it'll just make you very tired.
*Sometimes what seems like a step backwards is really just the wind-up that propels you forward at a greater speed.
*Things are never as bad as they seem.
*Out of small things, come great things.
*If I worked as hard as my child does just to get dressed, I could be President!
*Everyday is a precious day.
*God is good...all the time.
*Live life to the fullest and squeeze your little miracle everyday.
*All things work together for good, even in the very hardest times.
*Laugh often, love much, and cherish everything.
*Do all that you can...and then do the rest tomorrow.
*Just because a doctor says they can't do it doesn't mean they won't do it anyway!
*No matter how isolated you feel, you're never really alone.
*We learn more from our children than we will every teach them.
*Love covers a multitude of junk.
*Take time to process what you are going to do, and give time to others who need that processing time.
*A smile is worth a thousand words.
*Vomit totally comes out in the wash.
*Mommies are chosen for this journey, not burdened with it.
