What my mom taught me...



-To love unconditionally.
-To serve others without complaining or second thoughts.
-To walk humbly before God.
-How to sacrafice for your kids.
-To save money.
-Not to be wasteful (with time or money).
-To get things done, even when you don't have time, energy, money, etc.
-To forgive.
-To give.
-To laugh so hard tears come streaming down your face.
-To pray.
-To think for myself, and defend what I believe in, even when it gets you suspended from school. (not that I ever did *cough cough* HAHA!)
-to give grace.
-To cry.
-To worship.
-how to really love my kids.

Thank you Mom for everything that you have sacrficed for me over the years. You are the most Godly, humble woman I know, and I am so thankful to have you as an example of how I should be as a Mom. If I become 1/2 a good as mom as you, my kids will be blessed. I love you so much, and really do appreciate EVERYTHING you do!!

PS....I stole your picture Rach...I didn't have any recent ones of mom. Sorry & thanks!

Googled...

You know you've done it before...You opened up google and put your name in there. We have all done it. I've done it before, but this morning, I figured I'd do it again....And I found the usual links to facebook, meetup, etc. But what I also found were sites that took local news articles that had been written about me and posted them on their page...

Several sites took the article written about my trip to the Green Our Vaccines Rally in Washington DC led by Jenny McCarthy. Click here and here to visit the two sites that have published the entire article. It's neat to know that our story, even though at that point we didn't really know how much we really were already apart of the autism community, is still out there, hopefully raising awareness of the vaccine controversy!!

Other sites took the article about raising bi-racial children and published it on their site. A group called Project RACE published the article here.

Have you googled yourself? If so, what'd you find?!?
