Time for a Turn Around!

Gah, I have let the emotions of the last month overrun this blog. No more!

Time for some "awwwwwwwwwh" posts.

My oldest son graduated Grade 7 last year. Yes, here in the sunny state of Oz we hold a little graduation from Primary (middle) school. It was a glorious venue, and a wonderful night.

But more than anything, my eyes shone and my heart burst with pride at my tall, relaxed, happy, articulate son.

Who would have thought that anxious little boy would grow into such a fantastic young man? Okay, okay... we did, but not many others had the vision to see past the influences of the spectrum into his mind and heart.

They even did a dance. And he had a little solo bit on the end. Nervous, hell yes... oh, him? Well, yes, dance is not his forte'. But he pulled it off well.

And now we head to High School, with all the challenges and changes that will bring. Let's hope it is as big a success as these formative years have been!

But seriously... take that you naysayers!

Well done to your son ! What a gret achievement - you must be so proud and deservedly so.

I heard on the radio about the guy who had been kidnapped and his pleading to the Australian consul (I think that was who he was pleading to) and I thought of the things that you had written about him and I hoped that they didn't respond to his plea !!!

Thinking of you and sending lots of love, hugs and positive energy !
