Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


SPF: My world

Kristine at Random and Odd created an SPF assignment that it "is all about your world."

You’ve shown me your homes, your cars, your front doors, almost everything IN your house, your favorite things and the stuff that annoys you. Now you’re going to show me your world. My world is driving kids to and from school all day, but you’ve seen pictures of my kids and you know what a mini-van looks like right? This is a ‘thinking’ SPF. Yes, no kids…no dogs…no cats.
1. Your Freedom
2. Your Hope
3. Your Wish

Keep in mind, it’s ‘Your World’.

Ok, first off, my freedom. I find it in two places.

I find it in Army of Dad's arms

I also find it in my faith.

My hope:

That one day I can help this kiddo break through his challenges. I used the books as an illustration of the issues we've dealt with and how we've tried to help him. The snow globe is a good example of what it must feel like to be him - isolated and stuck in a world that no one else can fully understand unless they're in there with him. I also like his natural setting there.

My wish:

To be the best writer I can be AND make some money at it, too.

So, did you play? It's free and fun and anyone can do it.

    There are so many hopes we have for our children. :-)

    Freedom in your faith is wonderful!

    I :heart: that building your vocabulary book. Words rock! ;-)

    Happy SPF and I played too!

    Thank you for stopping by!

    You know, I love that you find freedom in your faith. I haven't been to church in almost a year....I think maybe it's time I start going back.

    Why is it I always learn something new at your blog? OK, I have never done this one either but I can take a stab at it as long as I don't have to figure out the picture thing.

    1. My internal freedom to be me comes from my family. The freedom I enjoy as a citizen comes from every service member who has served, is serving or will ever serve and the family members of all those people who support them and make it possible.

    2. My hope is my children.

    3. My wish is for peace and short of that, the requirement that every citizen EARN the right to live here. Whether that be through public works, enviromental conservation, military service, medical corp, peace corp, community service. When you have to sweat to earn something, most people take more interest in defending it.

    My kids are my world. I want them to grow up to be compassionate, passionate, brave, and empathetic. I really want them to get the otherworldly kindness that *wait for it* Mr. Rogers embodied...really. I do.

    I love that you showed the focus related to your son...

    To have a special child can be sooo challenging, and takes so much time, and it is hard on the heart....

    oh and stinkerbelle...oh that curly hair!!

    Great SPF today. I know how frustrating it can be living with someone who is challenged in a way no one really understands.

    Good luck to you and the boy in making your hopes come true.

    Thanks for visiting.

    The Dr's keep telling me that our kids will eventually outgrow their ADHD/ADD, I can emphathize with your hope.

    I played too!!

    Great pictures! I wish you the best with your writing - I'm working on the same thing.

    Great SPF! I definitely believe that God calls upon the strongest to be the parents of those with special needs. I'm blessed with a pair of "normal" children and it's enough for me to keep up with them as they are.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Wow!! May your wish come true soon! Being a writer is a blessing and something really special. Congratulations and thanks to visit me :)

    I was moved by your SPF -- I know the feeling of aching for a child and praying for his welfare, no matter how old he gets (mine were all boys). I wanted to be a writer, too, but antidepressants have taken the edge off of my creativity. I wish you the best with that! Thanks for stopping by!

    The freedom picture is awesome...both physically (you both look so cute!) and metaphorically.

    I love the picture of you and your both look very content...having the patience to work with your boy already puts him ahead of so many others...everything in good time :)

    Happy SPF!

    I love your prayer corner. You are a special lady to be given your son and all that he needs from you for his welfare.

    TG Army of Dad is there for you too!
