I am Blessed


I feel blessed each and every day when I look at my little superheroes and here are some of the reasons why.

I am blessed with children who have special talents. They don't have a disability, they have different abilities. They inspire me every day to be a special kind of person. To be more patient, more caring and more open to different ways of thinking. They inspire me to be an advocate for them and other children like them.

I am blessed that I have a special needs child who is not a statistic, he's not a number, he's not a diagnosis. He is my child who has a different ability and he's taking on a difficult world, head first, and at pace.


I am blessed as God doesn't give special needs children to just anyone. He takes imperfect people and gifts them with the greatest treasures. He knows that we can handle anything that is thrown at us because we've been through some down moments and got through the other side in one piece.

I am blessed that my beautiful girl is such a caring soul. She teaches others around her about acceptance and inclusion. She is determined that nothing will hold her back from achieving her dreams.

I am blessed that the sacrifices that I make today will give my little superheroes a better tomorrow.

I am blessed, I have two children who amaze me each and every day with their abilities.

Are you blessed? What makes your list? What are the positives that you can look back at each day and say "Yep, my life isn't that bad after all, I might struggle but I'm doing okay with what I've been given."

  2. I am blessed to have my family. Some days are rough as my one year old is super active and exhausting but I love him so much. I am blessed to have him and his little hugs and kisses. I am blessed to have a supportive husband who provides for our family as well.

  5. I am with you! My sister has different abilities as well so when we were young, we have to stay at home to take turns in caring for her. This, of course, resulted to a more tightly-knit family! Our family grew closer and sweeter because of her. We are just blessed to have her and I thank God for her everyday...

  9. You are a wonderful mom. I am currently pregnant with my first baby, and I am dying to meet her. When I was going for an ultra sound to check on the sex of the baby, someone asked me if I would be happy with a girl. My thought was, I will be happy with any child I am giving. They are precious no matter what!
