I am.....

a shopaholic. I have finally come to terms with the fact that I love to shop, specifically online. I am not necessarily buying things that I don't need, lol even though my DH will say I do, but if I find a deal I am going to purchase it. My newest find is a denim outlet on eBay where I have found name brand jeans for as low as $9.99 who can pass up a deal like that? I currently have drawers and cabinets full of hair products and a 3 gallon bin full of soaps (I will try to take pictures to show you my sickness). I have vowed to not buy anymore soaps and hair products until my current stash has a dent in it. Now its time to make the same vow for clothes but it's hard because I have changed my style and the way I want to look so we will see.

I am a mother.......

of two children with special needs. Every child is a gift from God, there are many out there who can not conceive on their own and pray and wish for children of their own daily. Well, I was blessed with two and I would not trade them in for anything. Some think having children with special needs is a bad thing, something too hard but my children have taught me many things. One of those things is determination, my 5 year old is one who no matter how many times you tell him no, don’t do that, you cant do that, if he has his mind set on it, he's going to try it regardless of what you say. Some might say he is hard headed but what I see is determination. My 2 year old is all about LOVE, she loves to she people hugging and kissing and is willing to smile and hug you at the drop of a dime. Everyday my children teach me patience, love, determination and the #1 thing they teach me is that a blessing is not a blessing because it looks pretty or is what you expected but because it is something given to you by God and he expects you to take care of it. So the next time you see someone whether it be child or adult that doesn't look or act like what you think is normal don't stare, point and laugh but remember they are a blessing to someone.
