Vote for my post on Mom Blog Network

More powerful than a locomotive......


I find myself overwhelmed by the parents I have met one way or another through this blog. Parents who are warriors for their children, using their powers for good, not evil. Parents who get up every morning and get it done, even when they are sick, or exhausted, or just plain worn out, mentally from all the appointments with specialists and therapists and pediatricians.
 So even though I was going to write about the nightmare turned happy day that getting Logan's Occupational Therapy has become, I thought I'd do this instead. All parents need a pat on the back, even if they DO feel  this powerful before every IEP meeting. I know *I* do.....*choke*

"When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit."

quote from http://www.inspirationalspark.com/encouragement-quotes.html
To all the parents out there who inspire me, and a very VERY special set of parents to a darling little boy and a gorgeous little girl, you can do it! I'm here in the background, cheering you on, even though you can't see me. You may THINK it's high blood pressure pounding in your head as you clean up the 467th mess of the day, or change the sheets for the 15th time, or drag a screaming child away from playgroup so you can go home and do the laundry. But really, it's all us monsters, cheering you on and lending you strength.
