It's that time of year when my son Sam comes home for the day every day for seven days. I wish he could stay over night too but he only sleeps an average of 4 to 6 hours and sometimes only 3. January 6th he will be turning 20 years old. I wish I could throw him a huge party but that would be selfish of me since he loves peace and quiet and the less commotion the better. He is having a pretty good week so far and I am grateful for that. It's really hard work though, emotionally and physically. He has developed some new health issues that so worry me and make me feel angry. Isn't having autism enough? Not being able to express himself or be understood? But then I correct myself and try not to go down that path. Being with Sam grounds me and inspired me to work hard and do the best I can. We will address these concerns and figure out what to do about them. I will not let negative, un-hopeful thoughts take over my mind. Having a son like Sam has taught me to be a good researcher, patience, to be open minded and figure out a way and never give up. Being with Sam is all inspiring and I am forever grateful to him. Thank you for all the lovely comments and encouragement over the past year. I know this is suppose to be my art blog but Sam is why I started to paint.
I wish you all a happy holiday and wonderful new year .
The best is yet to come!
