Blogging for Autism Awareness Wrap-up

So....here we are then end of 

And I am so sad to see it go.

This month flew by for me.

I hope you all enjoyed reading each post
as much as I did.

In case you missed any of them,
here they are for your reading pleasure.

I have to say...that I have learned a lot this month.

I have learned that there are GOOD PEOPLE in the World.

I have learned that having guest posters on your blog is a 
(Honestly, I thought this would be easy, even though several friends
warned me that it would be a lot of work.  Melissa, Stephanie and Tami,
YOU WERE RIGHT, I bow to your wisdom)

I have learned that I can get a post and pictures
 on my blog, no matter how it
comes to me, Google Docs, Microsoft Work,
 Microsoft Word, TypePad, email, HTML code,
I have it down pat now..so
if you ever want to guest post,
please contact me, I got this now. And I can do this at 8 pm
or 1:30 am..no problem

I have learned that with great work, comes great reward.

I have learned to put aside MY feelings, for the Greater Good.

I have learned that the world beats to it's own drum,
and I have no rhythm.

I have learned that while I know a lot about handling MY Autistic Child,
in the grand picture.that is all I know, how to handle MY child.

I have learned that dedicating an entire month of my life
  to bringing Autism Awareness, is not enough.
Autism is 365 day a year job, and while I don't want to turn this 
blog into a Autism Awareness blog, I think a little Autism Awareness
will be popping up from time to time.

I have learned that "Girls are Weird" or so my son told me, as night after night
he found me at my computer, in tears, over yet ANOTHER touching
Autism Awareness Post.

I have learned to Say NO to cookie requests for this month, even to 
loyal customers, the only cookies I did this month were Autism Cookies and 
10 dozen cookies for my Collin's Prom (which he did not even go to, but he
helped decorate, for 10 hours, in a a loud crowded gym, so I 
will count that as a victory).

I have learned that even after making more puzzle cookie then I could 
count this month, the sight of a puzzle cookie still makes me smile.

To all the guest blogger,

Huge Success!

busy schedules to help me.

  1. I am so proud of you and what you have achieved this month! Each and every post was amazing! I am so proud to be able to call you my friend! Many, many ((hugs))

  2. You are simply one of the most amazing people I have ever known. Your heart is genuine. If someone needed clothes you'd give them the shirt off your back. I'm so honored to be your friend and your person. I have learned a lot about myself through you. I love this post. It made me laugh and it made me cry. I was worried about the amount of work that it would take to put all this together but if anyone could handle it it's you. God broke the mold with you. You are one of a kind. Hugs my dear, sweet friend.

  6. Your dedication to Autism Awareness is truly inspiring. It's a year-round commitment, and your willingness to keep the conversation going is commendable. As someone in Brisbane, I understand the importance of support networks. Hiring NDIS plan managers in Brisbane can be a game-changer for families navigating the complexities of autism care. Let's keep raising awareness and supporting each other in this journey.
