Happy Mother’s Day!
This is my Mother’s Day gift to all of you. I came across this link to “Love Notes for Special Moms” http://specialchildren.about.com/od/needinspiration/ig/Notes-of-Encouragement/ and I wanted to share it with all of you Special Moms. Click on the link above, the notes are very empowering and inspirational. I have printed down several and have hung them in my office. This one printed below really hit home with me today for many reasons. This is just a sample of these great notes:
You Make A Difference
Your child’s progress might not be that easy to see on a day-to-day basis, but when you reflect from time to time on how far he or she has come, give yourself some credit: Would that progress have happened if you hadn’t been planning, praying, pushing for it? Everything you do for your child — every appointment, every therapy, every intervention, but also every smile, every hug, every conversation — makes a difference. But you’re also making a difference in the world. Every time you give information about your child’s disability to an educator, you make a difference for the next child. Every time you give advice in a support group or online forum, you make a difference for that parent and family. You are a force for good.
