I am worried, I am numb, and I am starting to worry more each day…there is a possibility it could happen here in Anderson. This is one of the most unpleasant, unsettling, and helpless feelings I have had in a long time.
Each day I drop off Rosebud at Calhoun Academy for the Arts, I drop her off with a feeling of empowerment, excitement, and joy knowing that she is being cared for, educated, loved, and empowered. Each day, my worry grows and that worry is slowly creeping into, intersecting those feelings of comfort; creeping into the knowing she is getting a quality education in a safe space. I want them to go away!
We are surrounded by noise, conversations, opinions, places where voicing and sharing our thoughts, feelings and opinions feel unsafe. Large group conversations are getting more overwhelming, more polarizing, and even volatile to a point forcing us to make tough choices….where is my safe space?
We are complete…the family is complete. As I walked into the room after the Christmas Tree was up and Sarah had completed the decorations, I got a little teary eyed. I had realized, this is the first Christmas with our complete family.
Today was a special day…I made a new friend! When I met Chris, I knew this guy was a rambunctious boy full of life and a love for sports. But what I did not realize, is how he can change your view of how a little boy with special ability can exceed all predispositions and expectations.
Have you ever wondered…what does it mean to be a member of a church. This is a common assumption, question, and phrase here in the southern part of the United States. This is usually the first question when you meet someone here in Anderson, SC; it is a part of the introduction pleasantries.
How are you?
My name is …
Nice to meet you …
What church do you go to?
Ok…we are members of this church.
I sit here this morning so scared to type what I am about to type. I am so superstitious…I worry these little moments of celebration are followed by more sheer madness
We are finding a rhythm and slowly finding sync in the twins life. For those that do know my family, we have a huge village of helpers…people that just have jumped in and given of their time, energy, efforts, resources…everything to help us learn how to take care of the twins. Once a week, my mom and nana come to our house, let us go to bed and sleep all night while they take care of the twins. In our world, we look forward to that night…it is like gold to us. Sleep is gold to us.
