Legacies a grandmother leaves

I have been fortunate. I have my mother still alive and well and across town. This isn't the case for everyone. Mother's Day means a lot to people. While I love my mother dearly, and recognize some of the sacrifice any mother goes through, I wonder how she is handling things. You see, HER mother has since passed on. It has been 7 years. I cannot imagine how difficult it has been for her, my aunts, and my great aunts in dealing with this loss in their lives. All I can do is show how her legacy and teachings Continues to live within me. Hopefully, my mom, aunts and great aunts will feel enlightened and uplifted in some way.

Who is my son?

April is here again, and it is autism awareness month. I just placed the t shirt order for our local walk. we use it as a fundraiser for an Autism center that helps kids like mine. I thought now would be a good time to write some things down. This is raw, and honest, and probably not politically correct, but what I say is directly from the heart. This is MY personal journey, and unless you can fully say you walk in my shoes, you have no right to judge. I do want to share this, so that if there is some mom out there in a similar situation, then she knows she is NOT alone.
