God-Given Gifts

It's easy for some to know what their God-given gifts are. My husband has a computer for a brain, so he is fantastic with computers. {grin}

For me, i have struggled. Over the years i have been told my gifts are in working with children. Ehh... not so much lately. I have also been told i should open a restaurant. Umm... i'm too lazy/picky/chicken/pick one. Then, there's the writing. I've been told i should write children's books. Yeah, well, they're only as good as the illustrator, and that's not my thing, so.... I used to write the newsletter for my small church and they loved it, but it has since closed its doors, so that's that.

Well, so i have this blog. I love to write. (You didn't know that, did you?) I have a lot of opinions. (Kept that a secret, didn't i?) And, i'm starved for an intellectual outlet as a stay-at-home mother of three.

If you put all that together, you MIGHT get one of my God-given gifts: writing... about/for/to benefit children. Maybe. I dunno. BUT - i did it. I wrote a "Letter to the Editor" (i know, i feel like a retired lady with too much time on her hands - no offense!!), and i attempted to shine a little light on Sensory Processing Disorder. After submitting it, i didn't think about it again.

Then it was published. I know it was because i got an email. Then another. Then another. Then another. So i found the letter online, and i decided to share it far and wide. It doesn't answer a bunch of questions about SPD, but it gives a glimpse for people who just don't know that people around them are dealing with this.

If you feel like it, hop on over and have a read. Otherwise, i'll try to entertain you better next time you stop in. :)

Many blessings for all of you on the journey.
