What I Remember

So much goes through my mind whenever I look back on my own childhood. No one saw any signs back then, but then again there wasn’t something called Aspergers when I was a growing up.  Yes, there were children who were different; unique in society, and our parents and others pegged us a shy. EasyContinue reading “What I Remember”

Writer/Mother of an Aspie/Aspie Myself(I think) Struggles

That title is a mouthful, I know. For years I didn’t know why I was different from the other children around me; throughout life,whether in school or church or attending my sons’ scout meetings; I knew without a doubt that I never fit in anywhere. Do you know how much crying went on whenever IContinue reading “Writer/Mother of an Aspie/Aspie Myself(I think) Struggles”

Living Life Underneath An Umbrella

I’m going to be brutally honest in this post; some might say crazy; but there are days, like today, that I think about dying.  There are bad days when I wonder whether I am worth anything; if I’m just a waste of space.  But I know that’s a lie.  I know that being an introvertContinue reading “Living Life Underneath An Umbrella”

Mindless Rantings on Life

Are we living in a land of confusion?  When up is down, right is wrong, good is evil; can we ever get right-side up again?  The world is a terrifying place and especially, I imagine, for those who are alone.  When you have to fall asleep by yourself, and when you awake there is noContinue reading “Mindless Rantings on Life”

My Oh My Writers’ Group Experience

Okay, so I did it.  I finally attended my first ever writers’ group.  It was held at my local Barnes and Noble, and we met in the cafe area.  I brought along my daughter-in-law Kayla for moral support(I’m an introvert, so it’s difficult to go to things like this alone).  I was this close toContinue reading “My Oh My Writers’ Group Experience”

Off To A Writers’ Group

I am about to embark on a terrifying journey, to a place most introverts would tremble at doing:  meet new people.  In early August I will be attending my first writers’ group at a local Barnes & Noble and I am petrified!  As an Aspie and an introvert, I figured I’ve got two strikes against meContinue reading “Off To A Writers’ Group”

The Business of Fear

I went to a business expo this afternoon with my husband.  You know, one of those expos a city has to bring businesses and consumers together to arrange some sort of happy union.  When my boys were younger, we would always load up on the free candy and pencils the various booths provided.  Now, myContinue reading “The Business of Fear”

When God is Silent

All my life I’ve been clinging to the hope of God and His existence.  Deep down I am fully aware that there is something greater than myself; than all of us; alive and in control of this infinite universe.  Death has had its fair grip on me for decades; what will it be like, howContinue reading “When God is Silent”

The Trouble with Team Sports

I suck at sports. There, I said it. Now it’s out there in the open for all to read. Well, those who know me personally wouldn’t find this surprising in the least. I am a klutz. I have horrible coordination skills that I’m surprised that I can put one foot in front of the other…okay,Continue reading “The Trouble with Team Sports”
