It’s been nearly a month since I last posted, and I do apologize for that. A couple of weeks ago we were in a car accident. While none of us had to be in the hospital, that doesn’t mean we weren’t injured. My husband and I have sustained injuries to our back and neck. But it is Thankgiving, and I feel I must give my thanks.
First, I thank my husband for standing beside me, no matter what happens. While this is traditional in any marriage, there are so many who do not stick by their spouses. I feel truly honored and loved that you stand beside me.
Second, I thank my kids for trying so hard. Despite it not being apparent to me, many people have seen growth in my children. This is great. It means we’re doing the right thing. But when people who haven’t ever met your kids say how well off they are, I must tip my hat off to the boys. While my husband and I support them, they are the ones making the strides. So thank you to the two of you.
Next, I’m thankful that we are finally going to move from my mother’s house. It’s a step we’ve needed to make for a while and kept getting caught up in the “Is this good for…..?” game. So in a week’s time we will be in an apartment where we plan to stay for the next 2 yrs to get our credit score up, and then purchase a home.
Last, I’m thankful to all of you in the Autistic community. You have stood behind me, picked me up, and urged me on. Without all of you, I wouldn’t have the courage to write my book, advocate for the sake us all, or change the world. And I do believe that we are all going to be able to change the world, one community at a time.
So once again, have a great and happy Thanksgiving!
