Quotes

I love quotes. I have always loved them, especially inspirational ones. I have found that since I had Ella I find a lot of comfort in words. I have been reading off and on Chicken Soup for the Soul - Children with Special Needs. I have actually owned the book for awhile but was kind of burnt out on reading about special needs, so have just now opened it up and much to my delight there are several really good quotes in the book. So every once in a while I will share some that I really liked. I'll start with this one......

"Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but getting what you have, which once you have got it you may be smart enough to see it is what you would have wanted had you known." - Garrison Keillor

Wow. I think that every mother of a child with Down syndrome that I know will relate to this quote. We have some many dreams and hopes for our children and lets face it, Down syndrome is not one of them. But, knowing what we know now, and loving these kids, we wouldn't want it any other way.

(Don't ask about the hair, this is the product of extreme mom boredom.)
