The fine line between autism and honesty

Autism…

A huge broad term with a lot of variations.

I have always wondered if it was just Dusty or do others have the same issues with their autistic child?

Dusty has gotten to the point where he will lie about the simplest of things.  It is odd when you have someone who has the cognitive and […]

Flashback Friday

This was in August of 2013 after my son had surgery on his face,jaw,etc…

This was my mom and my stepfather walking with him down the hallway at UNC hospital in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

My momma was always, and I stress always lol spoiling him. But I guess that’s what grandmother’s do.

I remember my grandmother, […]

Forgotten kisses

There are a lot of missing pieces of the puzzle of my life.
One particular time, the day I married James. We were sitting here the other night talking about different things as we normally do and then he got on the subject of our wedding day. I remember very little about that day. I remember […]

Victims, Abusers, Survivors

By |October 24th, 2018|Family|0 Comments

As a victim of domestic violence there comes a time in that span of abuse that the abused can turn into the abuser. Now with that said, that person isn’t your typical abuser. That person turns into the desperate, feeling of all is lost and will take something extreme to get out of.  I […]

The Hero Within…

By |October 24th, 2018|Family|5 Comments

Someone recently told me I was his hero. I honestly didn’t know what to say to that. I mean I am just Amy…mom to Dusty and Kayla, wife to James. It’s not like I’m kin to the queen of any country or some noble prize winner. Of course they are human too. Just because […]

Simplicity is overrated, isnt it?

It’s now 2016. Who would have ever thought we’d see these days come and not be in flying cars like the Jetson’s cartoons. It seemed so doable back them and to now look back on just how far we haven’t come, it makes one wonder just what our future really holds.

Time went so fast […]

Wisdom-less with laughter

Let’s see…where did I last leave this? I don’t think I quite remember where I left my purse much less the last post. I guess I could have looked back and see where I left it but …oh well. I am just going to wing it.

Well Kayla had to have oral surgery on […]

Stitches, flat tires and birthday cake

Have you ever been in one of those periods where you really just want to disconnect from the world around you and just immerse yourself in your own little bubble? Yeah, well that is kind of where I have been this past several, several weeks. Dealing with my husband and his “service connected issues” […]

There’s always a good side

By |October 8th, 2018|Family|0 Comments

No matter what things myself or my family have gone through I have managed to look at things from a different perspective. Now I won’t sit here and say there was something good about getting beat or raped but I will say it has taught me to love myself more than I did, it’s […]

What we did without, now becomes an almost obsession

By |October 8th, 2018|Family|0 Comments

As a single mother I struggled just to keep food on the table. I would make grocery trips with the kids stroller and was always limited to the dollar amount spent and quantity because I could only fit so much in the stroller. Now at one point early on we lived maybe a mile […]
