One post you don't want to miss. . . Weekend Link (just one!) 3/13/15

Things have been rather quiet on the blog for the past few weeks. Sick kids + a sick mommy + cousins in town for spring break + not much speaking to me in terms of writing topics = a quiet little blog. Which is always ok, in my opinion. Blogging to me is about writing and encouraging and sharing fun and realness all at the same time, never about holding up to some standard of perfection. So much freedom in that.

While I haven't been writing I have been reading and goodness, this post right here. . . read it. So powerful to anyone out there regardless of life status, but especially powerful and eyeopening to those of us with a special needs child.

If You Build It, They Will Come

I read this and had tears rolling down my face because hope. . . so much hope in this message and in what these people are doing.

How amazingly cool would it be if Clara were able to attend some type of program like this some day? I cannot even adequately express the excitement I feel when pondering such an opportunity.

Read the post, will you? And maybe even join in the effort?

 . . .

And my sick little Clara on Monday evening. Had to keep her home from school that day. . . Thankful she is feeling much better now!

Have a great day! 


  1. Just read the article- how cool is that! And yes, how cool would it be for Clara to have an opportunity like that one day... especially when you probably didn't even think something like Texana was an opportunity at one point!

    Also, hope there are no more sickies living in your house at the moment and that you're having fun with the cousins... and that Clara had a blast at the rodeo (sadly we didn't see her)!

  2. Wow! Tears. Thank you so much for sharing this post.

    Hope you and the family are all on the mend. Thinking about you often!
