Why should you read my blog? There are so many bloggers out there and with limited time why would you pick me? I really can’t answer that but I can tell you that I am a straight shooter and I write because it is soul soothing for me. For me this is a way to express my feelings, dreams, disappointments and truth according to my life in my little world. I have written for other platforms and have tried a variety of topic with the hope of making a little money for my time. Truth be told I have never made any money from any news article or blogs I have written in the past and I do not have any intention of doing so in the future.
When I joined Word Press I decided to take the intro email course and my first assignment was to “publish a ‘who I am and why I’m here’ post”. I really had to think about that for a few days because I wasn’t sure which direction I wanted to go with this. I originally started this blog because I wanted a place to share my story as a mother to a special needs child whom now is a disabled adult. Then I started thinking, I don’t want to only write about Special Needs Children or Disability Supports because I am so much more than that. Is being a mom to a disabled adult a big part of my life? Absolutely! I am also a mother to 2 other children that do not have special needs, a friend, a Christian and a significant other to a recovering addict.
My life is full of need, hurt, accomplishment, compassion, love and faith. In order for me to be the best person I can be I have to be honest about who I am and how I feel. So to answer the question Why Me, I would answer because you don’t want to miss out on some real life truths that just might help you in some small way. If I ask myself why do I want to do this it’s because I want others to know they are not alone and if I can help just one person through my writing, I have accomplished what I set out to do. I hope I have gained your curiosity and are now interested in reading more of my blogs in the near future.
