Tackling Difficulties

Tackling Difficulties

Sometimes things can get overwhelming. There is so much to do running the household, work responsibilities and taking care of Nick.  My son is 22 years old and has Down syndrome and autism.  This morning, I can’t seem to catch up.  But it was a fun weekend.  Nick went to a graduation party for one of his peers on Saturday. Yesterday was a full day at the NADS Bowlathon.  I tried to start writing but the laundry pile is weighing on my mind.  So rather than write something mediocre, I decided to post one I wrote a couple of years ago.  The message is fitting for this day.

Are you going through some challenges?  Do you need some inspiration to tackle those difficulties?  Take a look at this blog I wrote a couple of years ago:

Have a great day and go tackle those challenges.  That’s what is in my noggin this week.
