Mommy Is Getting Up There

So I had my ten year reunion this year. I know, I know. It really isn't that big of a deal, but it made me feel a little on the old side. Probably doesn't help that I teach teenagers who believe thirty is ancient. It was neat seeing people I haven't seen in awhile, but it also made me realize that I have become disconnected with so many people. I remember telling my mom that I would be friends FOREVER with my class. Guess life happened and here we are. I was getting dressed for the reunion and I looked at my right hand where I wear my ABS Awareness band. For a brief moment, I thought about taking it off because it clashed. Then I realized something, this is who my family is. I wear this band because I am so proud of what my family is made up of. Not only is K different from so many other kids, she is a part of me. How awesome is that? I have never been ashamed of my daughter and I never will be, but I realized that there are those who would like to hide their differences. Right now K is in your face about who she is and I am hoping that she always will be. She has two in your face parents so I think that will be a very good possibilty. Reflection time is over. Just thought I would get it out there. Also, Momma and Poppa G we are praying for you. K says hello and I am sure she would be tending your wounds if she were up there:)

Glad you had a good time and it sure does make you think about your life.

Thanks for your prayers! We are healing nicely. Just a little ouchy! No problem!

Love, hugs and kisses!

Momma G

I'm right there with you friend. I'm super proud of the family I have and I'm extra proud that my daughter is who she is and not afraid of a thing (except spiders. she does not like spiders)
