Christmas Day


I've been writing here for a couple of Christmases now, which means my day to post is always the 25th. I post here every month with confidence, yet I've found myself on this day with an unneeded amount of pressure on this day, Christmas.

I don't know what my problem is, but if I had to guess it's the pressure of wanting to write something profound on this religious holiday (without sounding religious). Something hopeful. Something that is important to say about the past year, something that says, we as parents in this special club know a lot that typical parents don't. I really just want to express my appreciation, my gratitude.

I want to say thank you to the community of un-typical parents and caregivers for always being so open and loving. 

Thank you for being so kind and giving. 

Thank you for coming to the rescue of so many over the past months. 

Thanks for advocating for your kids making it easier for others behind you. 

Thank you smiling that knowing smile to another parent you can tell is just learning what their child's disability really means for their life. 

Thanks for helping the parents and caregivers behind you know they can do it. That they have what it takes. 

Thanks for fighting the fight because someone has to do it, but not everyone can. 

Thank you for making me feel welcome in a world that sometimes makes me feel unwelcome. 

Perhaps my friend, Rob, said it all here in Christmas Eve on the Island of Misfit Toys and I'm just trying to echo what he's said. Thank you, thank you.

Merry Christmas to those that celebrate, Happy Tuesday to those that don't, and I wish peace and understanding to us all.
