I’ve heard it said that “blogs are crap, and just vanish when the power goes out”.
While this may be true when it comes to blogs about Traci Lords porn, fancy shoes, or the fashion choices of folks in Humboldt County California, I can personally attest to the power of “mommy blogs” and the online support community of special needs parents.
My online voice has been quieted while my family has been going through some legal court stuff that was put in motion to ensure the continuous care of Jackson should something happen to my husband.
Let me get this out there:
I blog for Jackson. For myself. And for those that choose to read it and carry away a grain of truth or a modicum of hope. I believe that I have a unique voice that rings true to some.
I am a PollyAnna purist who can find the light in any darkness.
There has never been any adversity or battle that I could not overcome.
And there have been plenty.
What has kept me afloat in the darkest of times has been the mantra:
THIS IS FINITE
Yep all good things must come to an end. And conversely– so must the bad.
Our legal struggles are not over.
But I am choosing to get back into the habit of tapping on the keyboard and getting out my brand of blogging.
To document the life of a child with a rare genetic disease, a seizure disorder, severe autism, and a glowing soul. To document the lessons I am taught. To remind others in the same position that there is joy to be found. There is beauty in the struggle.
There are monumental life lessons that are there for the taking.
And I am back– with a vengeance– to share them with you.
There is so much more to come.
