Dearest ,probably should have issued a trigger warning,@lioness,
I know that on here I am always trying to be positive , upbeat, and encouraging…..
But have you looked at the news lately?
I suppose it depends on which news, when, where, and how often.
I personally have to distance myself. I cannot take a steady dose of the negative side of the effects of living in this world without sufficient support for Autistics, whether they be children or adults. It has come to the point where my health is affected by it. It is difficult to be 100% positive all the time in the face of stark reality.
My precious little Autie Grandson had THE best year in an inclusive kindergarten classroom. There were a few bumps in the road, but they were overcome. Everything I do, I do for him. He is always in the back of my mind. His Mommy, my youngest daughter, says I do too much. I take on too much. I AM too much.
And she is right.
Somehow I have to balance it all to the point that I know how to relax and take it easy. For my sake and for my family.
I know what to do.
It's just consistently doing it.
Guess that's where prayer and persistence come in.
Love you guys to the moon and back!
