One Year Later…

Posted by on Mar 15, 2011 | 0 comments

Autism is A Trip is one year old today.  Well, it was on the 12th, when I started writing this.  Before my youngest child pulled a bunch of keys off my laptop keyboard.  Before my sinus headache eased enough for me to look at the screen long enough to type.  Before… well, life continued to happen.

Happy Birthday!

Life does just keep on moving on like that, doesn’t it?  I suppose if I wait for the “perfect” time to do anything, the time will never come.  I’m finding more and more that the “perfect” times happen when you least expect them, and are often perfect only in retrospect.

Anyway, it has been an eventful year since I started this endeavor.  I have learned much, gained perspective, and continued to laugh.  I have met amazing people I might never have connected with otherwise, and I have realized there are a lot of parents out there in autism-land like me.

Parents who are struggling, but making it work somehow.  Parents who hate and love the challenges they’ve been given by their “special” children.  Parents who desperately want to laugh, because sometimes the alternative is just too much to bear.

Thank you to everyone who has joined my journey of love and laughter.  I am deeply touched by every single person who has taken the time to comment here or on Facebook, or to contact me directly.  Together we are community, together we are strong.

I look forward to many more years of sharing the craziness of my life.  As always, I’m so glad you’re here.
