So, I am 37 now. It doesn't mean much except it affords me a chance to reflect on the past year and also my life as a whole. I have so much more peace now and seem to have more as I get older.
This year was full of challenges and pain and also eye opening experiences. The kind that you have to make a choice about whether to be "bitter or better" as they say...
I have found Aspergers to be liberating. I have found peace in understanding my son and myself better than ever before.
And now, on MY day (as my oldest says), I realize I can start being OKAY with how I am. Start. Its a process, but I am on THAT journey now. Amen.
