No Time For That...

There was a time in my life when things that some people said would upset me.  I spent a lot of my life especially growing up seeking acceptance or searching for a way to "fit in".  

I didn't know it then, but I know now that I had really low self esteem.  I have my ideas of where it may have stemmed from, but in hindsight, none of that matters.  It took a lot for me to get where I'm at and I have had to let lots of things and people go.  Many ties have been severed.  Some are hanging by a very very thin thread.  There was a time where I would have done everything and anything to try and mend it.  But, now I truly feel if its meant to be, it will mend itself.  

Being a mother to children with special needs is a role that I didn't ask for, and I really didn't have a choice, but I take great pride in it.  My children are worth all my time and effort.  Not someone who or something that doesn't have enough self respect or decency in taking care of themselves.  I have no time for that!!!! I have better things to spend my time on!  Here they are...
