Uh oh. Day 4 and I'm already getting stuck. I think today I am thankful for God connecting the dots. Yesterday we had a Skype with our RDI consultant. She always puts us back on track. About a year ago I was visiting a friend in Ohio. We were on a mini-vacation there and stopped at her house for just a few hours. Andrew had one of his biggest meltdowns EVER and my friend witnessed it. She
insisted strongly suggested that we contact her RDI consultant. We did. It has been a long year but we have made progress. Still, this past month has been difficult. Did I mention that I have been sick and hope to post a 'thankful' entry soon on how I feel better? When you don't feel well things slide. That is just the way it is. I am feeling better but not 100% and so she helped us yesterday really hone in on what she thinks is going on, how we can confirm that and then how to streamline to do the bare minimum. I know being sick as a mom is no picnic but add in homeschooling and special needs and lets just say that screen time can get out of hand.
So today's..gratitude... I am so thankful for God connecting the dots. If Andrew had not melted down at my friends house we might still be going along downhill. Now we are moving ahead...even if sometimes it feels like we are going at a snails pace while pushing a small truck. It is still forward.
