Ever onward, ever forward

Anything you can do, I can do...cuter!

Anything you can do, I can do…cuter! đŸ™‚

Last night we had a great couple over, and their son is a grown man with Autism who is living fairly independently. His mother is someone I admire who worked with him constantly and knew his potential but back when he was in school, not everyone saw that potential. She shared her struggles and those who helped her along the way. I could not help but appreciate the path she cleared for my son, Wil, and for other children with special needs. And the same appreciation could be said for the women who fought for our right to vote, and men who fought for fair treatment in the coal mines, and the list goes on to the ultimate sacrifice of our soldiers. So, every morning, send up a thank you to all those who gave so much so we can lead better lives, and keep pushing forward in their honor.  Yes, revel in it, but to stay stuck in it and feel “entitled” to it would be an insult to them. Keep the magnitude of what they did for us fresh in your mind, and keep on keeping on!

Respectfully submitted,

Christie
