    @Laks09, hey buddy, got in just to say yaay! that is a milestone mama, not shedding a tear while writing something on this journey, it is never going to be easy, but we move forward with a smile. Nothing wrong in cheering every step, every try to take that step, we are the biggest cheer leaders in their life.

    take care of yourself. I have mentioned many a time, that one of the mistakes I did was, neglect my health in the maze of joint family, taking care of two kids, with a absentee husband...you are your priority and no body else can do it for you better than you. It takes a toll, but you do not have a choice or option, you stumble, you limp or crawl to the occasion.

    No I would not change anything in this journey with my young man. He taught me patience, to be more attentive, to be more observant. probably a better me in the process.

    Acceptance, Determination, Hope keeps us float. and it is my strong belief that miracles do happen..

    Will join in later... one step at a time, one day at time we march.. lots of hugs and loads of positive vibes your way and towards all parents who need them.. parenting is never easy, but it is more so when you have hurdles to conquer on the path..

    @Laks09,

    Even though I knew and mentioned about you in many responses of mine, this post of yours brought tears into my eyes. The mothers who raise special needs children are themselves very special. It is so heartening to know that your son is raised carefully by the best of your abilities. Your determination and courage to focus on your son's quality of life is what makes all of us notice. You are definitely a guide for those moms facing similar situation.

    I admire you not only for raising a special needs child successfully but also for many other qualities you possess such as financial prowess, determination to take care of yourself, socializing skills, ability to write well with clear thoughts, being a glue for your family through your excellent relationship with the husband, daughter and son individually.

    Your patience and perseverance are the two qualities everyone should aspire to have. I can't thank you enough for summarizing the challenges for the benefit of other mothers who handle children with special needs.

    I see the mothers who handle special needs children as Godly and deserved to be worshiped.

    Dear Viji Aunty,
    Your feedback itself means a lot to me. I learn from you on a daily basis. Being content with whatever life has to offer is something I imbibed from you. Thank you for your support as always.

    Thank you Shan. I knew you would understand.

    How did you know I needed this? I usually do make myself a priority but when too many things get in the way, my health is on the back burner. My body has been telling me I need to give myself some TLC. Hopefully I’ll find my balance again soon.
    So true Shan! Before him, I didn’t know the depth of my patience. I always wondered how you did it until I had to do it. Then I derived inspiration from you. He has made me a better person for sure.

    Hugs to you too Shanvy. We love your family. Hope to hear loads of good stories soon. Come back and let’s start back on the fitness bandwagon together.
