Who am I? I am a girl who adores cupcakes and, after twelve years into this spectrum journey, I have proven that in the middle of a melt down, cupcakes WILL make things better :). I think so much more clearly after a big mouthful of yummy goodness.
I am actually a bunch of things mixed together but, mostly, I am a mom of three and a friend who understands how challenging the autism journey can be and that, if we stick together, friends can soften the tough moments. I believe in laughing when you can and looking for the humor in the madness because, truly, there is humor in the madness. It’s all part of the sparkle.
I believe autism is filled with the good and the bad and you have to simply take the good with the bad. There are tough moments and there are sparkles and I try to concentrate on the sparkles. Does that mean there aren’t any dark moments? No, we have our dark days when the frustration reduces me to tears but I try to concentrate on the moments that sparkle because the sparkles have a way of brightening the whole journey.
So, take a seat, relax and pour a cup of warm stuff or some iced goodness…depending on your preference…and sit a while. I think together is a whole lot easier than alone and I am so happy you’re here :).
