man in the mirror
In the words of a broken heart
it's just emotion
that's taking me over
tied up in sorrow
lost in my soul
but if you don't come back
come home to me darling
you know that there'll be nobody left in this world to hold me tight,
nobody left in this world to kiss goodnight,
And then... my encore... Michael Jackson... Man in the Mirror... A song that was on my playlist right after Greyson was born... and I would go on the world's shortest walks with him around Hermosa Beach... I was afraid to go further than 5 minutes from the house so I would just walk the surrounding streets... I thought he was just so darned breakable for the first few weeks...I had no idea he is actually resiliant.
Although I am not your Typical Mom...I am a Mom... And I think of my boys as my boys...they are my heart...
I know I am not the norm about my Autism perceptions and what I connect with and that is OK. I think differently ..we all do... and your way is absolutely not at all wrong...and neither are mine. The I love someone with Autism statement on shirts and signs makes me laugh....and I see it everywhere and I am grateful that Michael doesn't wear these shirts...
I love someone with hypothyroidism
I love someone with occasional constipation
I love someone with bulging disks
I love someone who acts insane when she PMS's.
I love Greyson and Parker...that's what my shirt would say...that's all.
I'll leave you with some beautiful words my Friend Susie shared with me... written by Roger Ebert from his book Life Itself: A Memoir
I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.
