Hypotonia: Part One, Two, & Three (2/11, 12, 14): This is a three part series that covers what Hypotonia is, what causes it, how it effects a person's development, and treatment options (there's just one). I wrote this series with the hope of helping others understand what Rae is struggling to overcome (or at least improve). Hypotonia...it's so much more than a symptom.
The Plan (4/21): Man plans, God laughs....and then we plan again and He laughs some more. I think I see a pattern here. God must laugh ALOT because "my" plans seem to change almost on a daily basis.
Confessions of a Hypocritical Mind (5/7): We all have an inner dialogue that we may not be very proud of and I decided to confess to my own hypocritical thoughts.
Sun Beams: Joyful Progress (6/26): The title speaks for itself. Sun Beams are little rays of light that help us get over the next hurdle. They usually happen when we feel the most down and offer enough joy to keep us moving forward.
Rae's Apple Party (10/8): For Rae's 2nd birthday we asked guest to help us purchase an iPad (hence the "Apple" theme) for her to use for communication purposes. She hasn't quite gotten the hang of it yet, she's learning and it's invaluable to us while patiently (well...maybe not always so patient) waiting for doctor appointments or driving to Atlanta (more on that to come).
More Than I Can Handle (11/21): Everyone has some platitude that they hear over and over again that nearly drive you mad. Mine is, "God will never give you more than you can handle." Wrong! I decided to weigh in on this particular misnomer.
There are so many other postings I'd love to share with you all and hopefully these earlier ones will encourage you to peruse the blogs archives. It has been one roller coaster of a year and I'm looking forward to a new year filled with more inchstones met, maybe a diagnosis (not hugely important in the grand scheme of things, but it would sure be nice), tons of pictures/videos, a few family trips, and lots of laughter (I love to laugh...who doesn't?). I'm sure there will be plenty of the other icky stuff (that's just life), but in the words of Sweet Brown, "Ain't no body got time for that!"
I'm already to busy searching for my silver linings!
