Can I be honest? When I first thought of the title for this post, it left a bad taste in my mouth. “Blessing” and “special needs” in the same sentence? Surely not! How can going to therapy 1-3 times almost every day, being exasperated with my son’s behavior, and being completely exhausted all the time be a blessing?
But when I stopped to think about it, I realized that along this journey I’ve learned a few things… ok a lot of things and counting my blessings is one of them. I’ve realized what a blessing this life can really be. I have so much to be thankful for and it only takes a short time to realize just how much!
I’m thankful for my son who has taught me so much about life and love. His zest (and sometimes extra energy) for life always amazes me and I love seeing things through his eyes. I am thankful that he has special needs because those needs have taught me how to be his advocate. It has taught me more patience than anything in the world and it has taught me that true love comes in all kinds of forms.
