I thought I'd start this thread because having a special needs child I now see beauty out of despair, joy has a new meaning for me in the small achievements made my my son and larger achievements are now pure miracles! We all have some favourate quotes, affirmations or sources of inspiration that keep us going through the bleak times. Lets share them together to empower ourselves to take care of ourselves so we can provide the best care possible for our precious kids.
"Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength." - Christopher Reeves
"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish He didn't trust me so much." (Mother Teresa)
Add your favourite sources of inspiration to the thread and ill put them all together in 1 place on the site when I have enough!
I find that by writing and getting things off my chest I get a renewed purpose and commitment to being the best mom I can be. I wrote this last night and it should be given to anyone who needs to some reassurance or who are feeling depressed about their special needs child.
loving all the special kids here on the forum xx
