Home » Special Saturday | A Few of My Favorite Things …
Usually, when I have a chance to tell someone about my life, when they start to ask questions, we never have a chance to delve into what makes it worthwhile. Special needs parenting, while sometimes difficult, full of ups and downs, isn’t without its perks though.
In fact, I think having children with special needs makes me a bit more aware, a bit more sensitive, to what’s really important in life.
Our challenge this Special Saturday was in sharing our favorite things. Sometimes, as we become so used to the business of living, and we become so hardened to being special needs parents as well, we forget that there are things worth sharing, worth calling our favorites.
I’ve been lucky enough to think on this before, and I know many of you have as well. But do me a favor and stop for a moment, and really think … what is your favorite thing about being a parent? Now … if you have a child with special needs … what is your favorite thing about being that special needs parent?
Some would argue that they are one in the same. But I call BS.
When life is a battle, a struggle, that is when you truly understand how important every little blessing is.
This post is about a few of my favorite things, but these are really THE things … the ones that make life worth living.
How about you?
What are a few of your favorite things, the things that don’t win awards but are equally precious and amazing.
Are you a special needs parent as well – do you find that some of your more favorite and smile-inducing moments are the ones others pass by in the course of living their lives?
