I just have to share with you what I saw today. I went to Wal-Mart this morning in my jammies. Yes, I did! And I’m not ashamed of it at all! It actually felt good to go somewhere wearing my comfy clothes. I did it all the time when I was a stay-at-home mom and had no time or energy to take a shower in the morning, to put on some nice clothes (which I didn’t have), and to put my “face” on. I wasn’t rushed today so I took my time. And I noticed a couple of things that made me think and see and then become grateful for.

A couple days ago Dillon noticed that I was sitting outside with a book; he decided to join me. He sat in his favorite chair with a book he found in the house, which was the same size as the one I was reading. He said to me, “Mama, read story?” I smiled and looked over at him and asked him to read me a story instead. What he read to me over and over again was exactly what I needed to hear. He said, “I love soooo much!” His message was so sweet and it’s for everyone that’s been in his life helping him. I will definitely watch this video again on the stormy days.
Today is Autism Awareness Day. And if I were to pick a topic about Autism, in which I would like to build awareness on, it would be the immense need of genuine Christian support for the entire family effected by Autism.
So, yesterday Dillon’s bus slid into the ditch and ended up rolling over on its side. I was so scared for him and so relieved to find out he was okay. Throughout the day I was anxiously waiting for him to come home and when I saw him step off the bus with one of his big smiles my heart just melted. I love his smile.
So, this morning I received that dreaded phone call that no parent ever wants to receive and that’s to tell me that Dillon was in an accident. Dillon’s bus slid into the ditch and turned over on its side. I spoke with both the sheriff and his aid and they both informed me that everyone is okay and no one was hurt. She asked Dillon if he wanted to speak to me on the phone and of course he refused. Thankfully, I could hear his sweet voice in the background to reassure my heart that he truly was okay. Another bus came to pick them up to take them to school. He has a half a day today so he will be home soon.
